Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Why is PLM data classification and library management important? Most new product offerings today, and many if not all continuous improvement programs, include numerous design elements that have already been used in earlier products. Typically, these re-usable elements constitute a large majority of the new offering’s design content. Hence, the ability to quickly locate data for re-use can provide a positive impact on your product development process, and can be key to reaching your product time-to-market and innovation goals. Teamcenter® software’s classification and library management enable your company to manage previously created product definition data in digital libraries and re-use this data in new product initiatives or continuous improvement programs. With Teamcenter, you can build hierarchies, classes, and attributes into classification definitions so that design engineers can quickly find design elements for re-use. Manufacturing engineers can also use these capabilities to evaluate alternative and substitute parts before finalizing their designs.
Artificial intelligence (AI) for classification drives a culture of reuse across the organization. The system automatically suggests how objects should be classified, what property values should be and more. Leveraging the latest technologies, the AI engine looks at input from many sources and provides accurate predictions. With flexible configuration, you decide the level of confidence required before a prediction is made. With AI for classification, you can make the mundane task of classifying data easier and more accurate.
With Teamcenter, you have the ability to re-use data in new product initiatives and continuous improvement programs to increase productivity and reduce rework. Re-use of data helps you to increase productivity. By enabling you to manage previously designed, validated, and approved product and tool definition data, Teamcenter classification capabilities can help you re-use date to expedite product development, reduce its cost, and build design intent and lessons learned into your new product initiatives. Teamcenter PLM data classification improves time-to-market and lowers product development costs through ease of use and powerful search to optimize your re-use thought.
With Library Management capabilities in Teamcenter, you can further enhance your classification strategy to help you be more productive and get to data you need, faster. You can create multiple libraries as per your business requirements, and configure your libraries based on technical and business constraints. Teamcenter also provides flexibility in setting up your library hierarchy, allowing you to organize business content into individual library nodes. Each library element can be managed as separate objects (parts, tools, materials, etc.). Membership rules provide a rule based approach to populate your libraries.
The eCl@ss standard is used for capturing data and classification definitions for the product in entirety. The standard ensures same data semantics with a standardized format with unambiguous terminology for data exchange of product information throughout the extended enterprise. Import the eCl@ss hierarchy and class definitions into Teamcenter, store and manage the eCl@ss taxonomy, author, import, and export classification data into the eCl@ss hierarchy, and administer your custom taxonomy using eCl@ss artifacts (e.g. properties, aspects, etc.) for creating and modifying your custom classification hierarchies.
