PLANO, Texas, and ‘S-HERTOGENBOSCH, The Netherlands, April 8, 2008 - Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced Koninklijke Nooteboom Trailers (Nooteboom), a division of Nooteboom Holding, selected NX™ and Teamcenter® software solutions to help reduce development costs and time to market.
Nooteboom designs and manufactures vehicles for special road transport, including semi-trailers and low loaders. NX will replace the company’s existing software and will be used for three-dimensional trailer design and configuration. The NX implementation is currently in its pilot phase and being tested within one of the company’s vehicle groups. Nooteboom will use NX to define product structures, so that multiple variants of trailers can be prepared for production without additional manual effort or having to make post-production adjustments.
Nooteboom will use Teamcenter as a data management system for the entire organization and will link new product-related information such as instructions, legal documents, manuals and schedules.
“We are particularly satisfied with the numerous possibilities to structure data and generate workflows,” said Herm Verbeek, manager of engineering at Koninklijke Nooteboom Trailers. “Siemens PLM Software’s technology will enable us to focus on our efficiency and increase the time we can spend on innovation.”
“The fact that Nooteboom is displacing its existing solution with Siemens PLM Software’s solutions is a testament to the superiority of our technology, our professionals and our continual focus on our customers,” said Paul Vogel, senior vice president and managing director for Europe, Middle East & Africa.
