Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
SEOUL, May 24, 2012 - Siemens PLM Software, a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced LS Mtron, Korea’s leading industrial machinery and components parts provider, credited the successful enterprise-wide deployment of Siemens PLM Software technology for greater product development efficiency and a 60 percent reduction in bill of materials (BOM) operation and development time.
“Siemens PLM Software’s technology enables us to achieve our goals of increasing the effectiveness of our data management and migration, reducing our bill of material errors, and creating a more collaborative environment for our team,” said Kyu Moon Kim, team leader, LS Mtron. “By investing in the leading PLM technology available in the market today, we have been able to reduce cost and time to market. This has helped LS Mtron to become a leader in our own industry and we plan to vigorously use Siemens PLM Software’s technology to become even more competitive in the global marketplace moving forward.”
LS Mtron, which has used various disparate PLM software offerings since 2005, began re-evaluating its PLM technology in an effort to fully integrate its product development and data management functions on a single platform to enhance efficiency. Following an extensive evaluation process LS Mtron elected to deploy Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter® software, the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle management system, and NX™ software, the company’s fully integrated computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) solution. The deployment of Siemens PLM Software’s open solutions across the entire company network enabled LS Mtron to manage all of its data from various sources on one platform.
LS Mtron uses Teamcenter to create an enhanced collaborative environment based on a single source of product and process knowledge which helped increase efficiency and reduce errors. In addition, the seamless integration between Teamcenter and the entire integrated NX portfolio helps LS Mtron shorten the product design cycle, improve product quality and reduce time to market. LS Mtron found that the robust functionality of NX and Teamcenter significantly enhances overall production efficiency.
“We are proud to work with a leading industrial machinery and high-tech company like LS Mtron,” said Chul Jung, country manager of Korea Operations, Siemens PLM Software. “Siemens PLM Software is committed to strengthening its relationship with LS Mtron and we look forward to actively supporting the company in its goal of achieving even greater productivity, by providing solutions that facilitate smarter decisions which lead to better products.”
