Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
FOMAS Group, a worldwide leader in the manufacturing of forged components based in Italy, has selected Teamcenter® software, the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle management software, as its global solution for product lifecycle management (PLM). FOMAS group will use Teamcenter to manage their corporate know-how and support several business processes required to get the most advanced and high quality products to market at the right time. With Teamcenter, FOMAS Group will have the tools to manage their product data in a unique environment and give teams the possibility to find, share and re-use engineering designs, documents and bills of materials (BOMs) – helping teams reach beyond functional boundaries and connecting people with the right information to make the best products. The goal is to improve connections between engineering, manufacturing and quality among worldwide plants in order to share and apply the best practices.
“The current market requires more complexity and more flexibility, combined with shorter lead times and cheaper solutions, and we are committed to delivering turnkey solutions and the best customer support with the most engineered and technological forging applications,” said Davide Ornato, board member of FOMAS Group. “We found in Teamcenter a fundamental support for this strategy. The PLM system will help us increase collaboration between different functional areas and plants by accelerating the execution of our procedures and projects. By improving time management, as well as enhancing and securing the delivery of the data from engineering department to manufacturing to quality processes, we will be able to provide a better and faster response to our customers.”
FOMAS Group provides turnkey solutions, from forging and ring rolling to assembly. The company works like an engineering laboratory able to support the customer in co-design, and provides products and solutions on behalf of a third party. The increased amount of requirements and production volumes, plus the input to reduce time to market, led FOMAS Group to consider the adoption of a system to be able to share all technical and production data related to manufacturing processes. After careful evaluation, FOMAS Group selected Teamcenter over other competitive solutions as the most appropriate technology to manage the increasing complexity of its products. Using Teamcenter, FOMAS Group expects to continue to guarantee product performance, as well as the strict tracking and respect for requirements, all while maximizing flexibility, productivity and streamlining global operations.
Among the functionalities of Teamcenter, FOMAS Group was impressed by Active Workspace, the innovative interface for Teamcenter that provides a streamlined and intuitive PLM user experience. Characterized by a simple, engaging, and effective design, Active Workspace provides a personalized user experience to connect stakeholders throughout the enterprise with the data they need to make quality decisions and drive innovation. Using this solution, FOMAS Group will have the capacity to easily manage the increasingly massive amounts of information generated throughout their product lifecycle processes, and often spread across many sites and several different databases.
“We are very proud that FOMAS Group has put its trust in Teamcenter,” said Franco Megali, Vice President and Managing Director for Italy and MEA, Siemens PLM Software. “This is a further step for FOMAS Group towards the digital enterprise.”
