Toyota Motor Corporation has expanded its vehicle safety information management system based on Siemens’ Teamcenter® software. The system has been in use since January 2013 as part of a comprehensive initiative to produce safe vehicles for its customers. Teamcenter was selected based on the proven track record of its technology and its widespread usage throughout the global manufacturing industry.
Market requirements regarding safety compliance for vehicles are constantly increasing. In 2011, the International Safety Organization (ISO) published the ISO 26262 Functional Safety standard which defines functional safety for automotive equipment applicable throughout the lifecycle of all automotive electronic and electrical systems. In order to ensure compliance with ISO 26262, Toyota decided to implement a new safety information management system based on PLM that would standardize processes across multiple divisions.
After evaluating several PLM software systems, Toyota selected Teamcenter. Toyota cited the widespread adoption of Teamcenter by the global manufacturing industry and Siemens’ open policy for PLM technology as important factors in its decision. Toyota’s successful deployment of Teamcenter has allowed it to enhance collaboration between multiple divisions and significantly improve traceability management. This facilitates its ability to comply with functional safety standards.
“We are extremely proud to have earned the confidence of Toyota for such an important global initiative,” said Chuck Grindstaff, president and CEO of Siemens PLM Software. “As the leading supplier of PLM software to the auto industry, Siemens takes its commitment to customer success very seriously. We are confident it will continue to provide the right information, in the right place, and at the right time, to help Toyota continue to make smart decisions throughout vehicle development.”
