Direct Materials Sourcing

With Direct Materials Sourcing, you can understand cost drivers early in the product lifecycle and understand supply chain impact before changes are approved. Some of the capabilities of this solution include efficient early bidding processes featuring RFx (request for information, proposal or quotation) template authoring, a database of potential suppliers qualified by categories, controlled processes for managing events including multiple round processing, automatic tracking and communication, detailed cost breakdowns, bid analysis, and award nominations.

Supplier Collaboration

With Teamcenter Supplier Collaboration, you can extend your product lifecycle management (PLM) processes and data to your non-Teamcenter suppliers efficiently through real process integration. You can collaborate with your suppliers through interactions including Design Data Exchange, Direct Materials Sourcing and Supplier Program Management, all using the same PLM Supplier Collaboration Foundation.

Supplier integration using Teamcenter clientsz

Teamcenter can help you collaborate with suppliers who have authorized access to your Teamcenter environment. Trusted suppliers can securely participate in your PLM processes, and only work with data that you grant them access to. Teamcenter multi-site collaboration enables you to selectively share and synchronize supplier data, all within a secure, controlled PLM environment. Teamcenter visualization capabilities allow suppliers to participate in design reviews, without the requirement of co-location or CAD tool standardization.

Supplier Program Management

Vendor Management

Collecting and managing supplier information can be a tedious manual task. With Teamcenter vendor management, enterprise stakeholders (such as design, engineering, compliance and purchasing) have access to suppliers, supplier data, and supplier parts in a single, secure PLM framework. Suppliers can be organized by the categories of goods they provide, making it easy to search for the right supplier. Supplier parts and quotes are connected to the product BOM for ease of access and analysis.
