FOR RELEASE Monday, October 31, 2005
PLANO, Texas– UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that its Teamcenter software, the world’s most widely used PLM portfolio, played a key role in helping the United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) win the E-Gov Department of Defense (DoD) Excellence in Enterprise Architecture award for “Leadership in Government Transformation.” The award was given for a specific Joint Battle Management Command and Control (JBMC2) Capabilities Mapping Environment (JCME) project, which provides a web-based, collaborative enterprise system engineering environment. USJFCOM is one of nine unified commands in the DoD and its programs help the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines integrate their war-fighting capabilities. USJFCOM uses Teamcenter as the underlying technology for its systems engineering architecture.
With Teamcenter for Systems Engineering, the JCME integrates all aspects of a program’s definition – mechanical, electrical, software, military specifications, regulatory requirements, etc. This integrated view of the complete system enables the “what-if” analysis and testing necessary to make better program decisions – along with the re-use of previous program information. By supporting better decision-making and streamlining efficiency, JCME is leading the way in what the award calls “Government Transformation.” USJFCOM is responsible for developing integrated architectures that must manage complex enterprise information as a framework for decision making. The award validates the results achieved from these efforts. JCME is not just a systems technology solution, but is a tool to manage operations through standard best practices in integrated architectures. USJFCOM customers leverage the program to re-utilize architectural information to develop, analyze, test, assess, exercise and plan for current and future military capabilities. The powerful mapping and traceability, coupled with the ability to build re-usable, data-enriched objects was a key enabler for this project.
UGS Federal Group assists Federal/DoD organizations in their innovation and transformation efforts, including USJFCOM.
“We congratulate USJFCOM on this prestigious award,” said Mo Baz, director of Federal Sales, UGS. “We are proud to be the technology provider assisting USJFCOM in their JCME transformation effort. USJFCOM has been using Teamcenter technology for the last three years. While we support many custom implementations of Teamcenter, it’s important to point out that USJFCOM was able to complete this project using Teamcenter’s system engineering functionality ‘out of the box.’ We look forward to supporting USJFCOM and other Federal/DoD organizations in their innovation and business transformation projects.”
