Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Companies today face ever-increasing customer pressure to offer greater product choice and variety. The complexity of electrical and software components make traditional configure-to-order approaches even more problematic. Current solutions struggle to support configuration across domains, resulting in duplicated data, errors, and overwhelmed resources.
With product line engineering inside PLM, you can deliver the variety your customers demand while driving profitability. Teamcenter® enables a single definition of variability across domains and across the lifecycle. Product options aren’t tied to design data, but are managed independently. This provides a common source of configuration data that can be leveraged across mechanical, electrical and software domains. Product line engineering inside of PLM supports the entire product lifecycle, enabling you to take advantage of robust product planning and system modeling capabilities across all domains. You can ensure every stakeholder clearly understand accurate configuration information. With product line engineering, you can react faster to market demands.
To continuously deliver innovative products, to adapt to new market or regulatory requirements, or to accommodate customer requests you must be able to effectively make changes to your product offerings. With product line engineering capabilities in Teamcenter®, you can quickly and effectively adapt to change. You can introduce new product variants and retire those that are no longer valid. Configuration items are controlled independent of product design, ensuring control of change across the lifecycle.
Leverage an easy to use global dictionary to manage products, product families, features, and the rules that govern how features are used. This single source of information makes it easy to reuse features across products, maximizing your product development investment. Features can be allocated to product lines and scoped to specific product models. You can view a summary of where features are used and package them into groups, making design, sourcing, and manufacturing easier.
