FOMAS Group, Italy-based manufacturer of forged components, has selected Teamcenter software as its global solution for product lifecycle management (PLM). FOMAS group will use Teamcenter to manage their corporate know-how and support several business processes. With Teamcenter, FOMAS Group will have capacity to find, share and re-use engineering designs, documents and bills of materials (BOMs) , the companies report.
FOMAS Group provides turnkey solutions, from forging and ring rolling to assembly. The company reports that it works like an engineering laboratory, able to support the customer in co-design, and provides products and solutions on behalf of a third party. The increased amount of requirements and production volumes, plus the input to reduce time to market, led FOMAS Group to consider the adoption of a system to be able to share all technical and production data related to manufacturing processes. After careful evaluation, FOMAS Group selected Teamcenter over other competitive solutions as the most appropriate technology to manage the increasing complexity of its products. Using Teamcenter, FOMAS Group expects to continue to guarantee product performance, as well as the strict tracking and respect for requirements, all while maximizing flexibility, productivity and streamlining global operations.
Among the functionalities of Teamcenter, FOMAS Group evaluated Active Workspace, the interface for Teamcenter that provides a PLM user experience. Using this solution, FOMAS Group says it will have the capacity to easily manage the increasingly massive amounts of information generated throughout their product lifecycle processes, and often spread across many sites and several different databases.
