U.S. Air Force to Standardize With Siemens’ Teamcenter PLM Platform
Siemens expands relationship supporting U.S. Air Force with digital capabilities to innovate in the defense industry.
January 26, 2021
U.S. Air Force has selected Siemens' Teamcenter software as the foundational system of record to support its digital acquisition and sustainment strategy for critical systems and technologies across the service. The selection of Teamcenter as the Air Force enterprise standard follows a 2019 indefinite-delivery / indefinite-quantity contract for $24.6 million to Siemens for licensing, maintenance and support.
Teamcenter, part of the Xcelerator portfolio from Siemens Digital Industries Software, is a modern, open and adaptable product lifecycle management (PLM) solution that provides a digital thread for innovation. By leveraging Xcelerator, Siemens’ integrated portfolio of software, services and application development platform, the Department of Defense and the aerospace and defense industry can integrate disparate repositories of program data and effectively share product performance details at any time, from any location.
“We are incredibly proud to support the Air Force with a toolset that supports their digital journey and fundamentally enhances the way they can field capability with greater speed and agility,” says Tina Dolph, president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies. “By providing the Air Force and other defense agencies with a robust enterprise PLM solution, time-sensitive and actionable data can be accessed across the earliest phases of a system lifecycle, resulting in lower operational costs, fewer down times and overall improved readiness.”
Siemens Government Technologies (SGT)—the cleared provider of Siemens products, technologies and software for government customers—is leading a focused effort to apply the depth of experience gained across industries through digital twins and rapid prototyping for the benefit of the entire Department of Defense (DoD), the company says.
