FOR RELEASE Thursday, March 30, 2006
北京和上海 ---- 全球领先的产品生命周期管理（PLM）软件和服务供应商UGS今天宣布推出Tecnomatix™ 7.6版本软件，该软件为UGS全面数字化制造软件组合的最新版本。Tecnomatix 7.6 在对很多制造企业共用的工作流程进行定义和优化方面很有帮助，同时对耗时的任务进行自动化处理，以提高制造工程在流程设计和验证方面的生产力。最新版本还包括多种增强功能，以进一步提高其易用性。
UGS also announced today that by more tightly integrating Tecnomatix with its Teamcenter® PLM software portfolio and creating closer alignment with the UGS PLM Open business model, it has elevated digital manufacturing’s impact on PLM and made significant progress in closing the gap between product and process design for the entire global manufacturing industry.
“大多数制造业主管一直都把产品上市速度列为经营重点”，IDC的PLM解决方案分析总监Gisela Wilson说，“UGS通过在Tecnomatix 数字化制造组合中支持制造业工作流程，来为制造工程师们创建虚拟的‘实时生活’方案。该方案致力于解决制造业的关键目标--加速启动生产和实现上市时间承诺。”
Enhanced workflow support in Tecnomatix 7.6 is designed to help manufacturing engineers define consistent, unambiguous, error free processes that are optimized for efficiency. This industry-leading functionality includes support for a variety of common business workflow processes.
“Big enterprises like Volkswagen are facing a huge number of parallel, sequential and interlinked business processes. This leads to a large amount of data, that is created across all departments and must be managed in a structured way,” said Mr. Tino Reichel, leader for the Digital Factory implementation in the Body in White – Planning in VW. “It is important to understand that every minute we can save during production launch on the factory floor can have a dramatic impact on our product’s cost and our company’s profitability. The challenge in implementing a digital method for supporting business processes is to enable the creativity of our engineers as well as the technical implementation of Digital Manufacturing software. It is a prerequisite to have agreed business processes and corresponding organizational support as a basis for such an implementation. Those digital methods should enable to automate or partially automate time consuming planning tasks, that are critical elements in the process chain of our enterprise. The new Tecnomatix Software (Version 7.6) allows us to plan ahead for manufacturing and ramp-up processes, improve collaboration and thereby avoid expensive redundant efforts and mistakes in the manufacturing processes. This contributes to improving our bottom line.”
Automation and usability improvements boost productivity
UGS has focused many of the enhancements in Tecnomatix 7.6 on increasing the productivity of manufacturing engineering by reducing the time required for process design and validation tasks and improving usability.
“The latest release of Tecnomatix is consistent with UGS’ commitment to providing manufacturers worldwide with the software tools that will help them optimize their efficiency and innovation throughout their entire product lifecycle,” said Ziyon Amram, vice president, Manufacturing Solutions, UGS. “Through its enhanced support of common business workflow processes and focus on manufacturing engineering productivity, Tecnomatix 7.6 is helping companies transform their process of innovation through world-class digital manufacturing.”
UGS provides the widest domain coverage with its Tecnomatix digital manufacturing portfolio from part planning all the way through production management and feedback to product design. Tecnomatix is the only digital manufacturing solution of its kind that covers the depth and breadth of digital manufacturing requirements and is used by more industry leaders in more industry verticals than any other comparable digital manufacturing solution.
