Siemens PLM Software and thinkstep have created a new integrated material management software to help streamline the material lifecycle and material-driven product design. This platform, according to the companies, will help manufacturers improve product performance and reliability by gathering design, engineering, analysis, compliance and manufacturing information into one single platform.
The application is part of Siemens’ Teamcenter portfolio and includes functionalities for error reduction, rework and recalls from inaccurate material data. It is also able to reuse market-tested materials for new products.
“Through our expanded relationship with thinkstep, we’re delivering a competitive advantage to all of our customers through true material management intelligence,” said Eric Sterling, senior vice president, Lifecycle Collaboration Software, Siemens PLM Software. “Products from virtually every industry can fail, and often times the failure results from the inconsistent use of material information. The new Teamcenter integrated material management solution provides a more holistic view of material data for use in all phases of the product lifecycle to help improve quality and reduce development cost. The new solution gives manufacturers the right information at the right time so they can react quickly and realize innovation.”
