UGS PLM Solutions Extends Leadership In Aerospace & Defense With New and Enhanced Teamcenter® Solutions

MRO 2004, ATLANTA -- UGS PLM Solutions, the product lifecycle management (PLM) s ubsidiary of EDS, today announced the enhancement of its Teamcenter® solutio n for Aerospace and Defense. The announcement was made at the MRO 2004, the world’s largest conference a nd exhibition for the global maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) industry. S eparately, UGS PLM Solutions announced the availability of Teamcenter In-Service , a new solution that extends the value of PLM to MRO organizations (see Teamcenter In- Service press release issued today). Teamcenter, from UGS PLM Solutions, is a proven portfolio of configurable lifecy cle domain and industry solutions, uniting product knowledge with process innova tion to deliver business value throughout the product lifecycle. Teamcenter Aer ospace and Defense is an industry solution pre-packaged with industry expertise for fast deployment and a rapid return-on-investment. “Teamcenter is the de facto global standard for the aerospace and defense i ndustry when it comes to production-proven, ‘industrial-strength’ and scalable PLM solutions,” said Tony Affuso, president and CEO of UGS PLM Sol utions. “With all 15 of the top A&D OEMs managing their intellectual assets with Teamcenter, our customers are saving billions of dollars in design and pro duction costs and cycle time.” Teamcenter’s position as the leading solution for intellectual asset manage ment in aerospace and defense is reinforced by research reported by CIMdata, a c onsulting and industry research firm that tracks the PLM market. Based on 2002 r evenue estimates (2003 estimates are not yet available), CIMdata ranks EDS as th e revenue leader in the aerospace and defense sector of the PLM industry’s highest-growth segment -- collaborative Product Definition management (cPDm). “UGS PLM Solutions has clearly distinguished itself as a key supplier of cPDm and overall PLM solutions for aerospace and defense contractors; c ompanies that focus on complex, long-life products,” said Ed Miller, presid ent of CIMdata. “These release milestones for Teamcenter further bolster UG S PLM Solutions’ position in the industry.” Teamcenter Aerospace and Defense Version 4 Teamcenter Aerospace and Defense enables global program and team collaboration t o manage extremely complex products, long development cycles and stringent proce sses. The new release of Teamcenter Aerospace and Defense features a secure, web -native environment with PLM capabilities for program-driven change and configur ation management, audit management, scheduling, document management, ITAR (Expor t Control) administration and CDRL/SDRL data management. Combined with Teamcenter In-Service, Teamcenter Aerosapce and Defense offers the first complete PLM solution for the A&D industry to fully integrate product kno wledge from requirements to retirement. The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) selected Teamcenter Aerospace and Defense becaus e it met 95 percent of its requirements out-of-the-box. The RAN is currently ro lling out Teamcenter Aerospace and Defense as the primary application for throug h-life configuration management of the functional, allocated and product baselin es of its ships and shore-based mission-capable assets, and will be reviewing Te amcenter In-Service to see if it offers similar cost effective benefits in maint aining operational readiness with an assurance of fitness for service.
