Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Exchanging design data with suppliers outside of your Teamcenter® environment is streamlined with Design Data Exchange. As a “sponsor” in Teamcenter, you create packages of information including large CAD files to share with your suppliers. Your suppliers use a secure web portal to receive requests and data packages from you, and they can use the same portal to upload and submit responses back to you. Trusted suppliers may be given access to supplier self-service which allows them to request their own exchange packages and create new items. The Teamcenter data share manager, accessed through the portal, simplifies the upload and download of large files. The briefcase browser enables suppliers to browse through compressed CAD files and open the files in their native CAD systems, where the CAD files can be modified and saved back to the briefcase browser. Traceability, audit, and version control enable efficient, effective, and transparent process execution.
Efficiently integrating your extended suppliers with PLM processes can be a key factor in time-to-market and cost saving objectives. Teamcenter Design Data Exchange provides you with an efficient, secure, and scalable supplier integration solution for exchanging product data (including large CAD files, JT files, specifications, etc.) with suppliers outside of your Teamcenter environment. The Teamcenter data share manager, accessed through the supplier web portal, simplifies the upload and download of large files, including CAD designs.
Design Data Exchange capabilities provide suppliers with direct access to Teamcenter data that they need to support their tasks, and provides Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) with the opportunity to exchange smaller, targeted (access rights applied), and “fresher” data packages with less administrative effort.With targeted data control as part of your supplier collaboration process, you can be assured that your critical product design data is traceable and delivered to the right suppliers, securely and efficiently with Teamcenter. Access rules in Teamcenter are applied to each individual supplier user, ensuring suppliers have access to only the data they need to get the job done.
With the Teamcenter Design Data Exchange solution, you have visibility into your supplier’s design data exchange activities, where you can track all design data exchange activities, and benefit from coordinated sharing. The OEM sponsor can track all activities with suppliers, including all file uploads and downloads.
Teamcenter sponsors are able to assign modification rights on design data to allow suppliers to update designs. When modification rights are granted, data is checked out and Teamcenter anticipates supplier updates. Different versions of design data can be tracked. Comparison reports can be generated between design data file versions, with color coding to highlight new changes that come in from suppliers.
