Siemens PLM Software Launches Teamcenter 2007 in China, Pushing Boundaries Forward in the PLM Industry

Siemens PLM Software unveiled details of its TeamcenterT 2007 software at a press briefing in Beijing. The new version of Teamcenter provides greater manageability, productivity, teamwork and control for the manufacturing industry.

Teamcenter 2007 includes a number of enhancements and features that simplify and accelerate implementations, enhance productivity, streamline collaboration and expand control of the entire product lifecycle process. Its fully unified architecture presents a complete end-to-end PLM portfolio.

"We are confident that Teamcenter 2007, which is built on a complete Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) using the latest IT standards, will help a greater number of Chinese manufacturers to actively participate in Global Innovation Networks," said Hans-Kurt Lübberstedt, senior vice president, Asia Pacific, Siemens PLM Software. "By deploying Teamcenter 2007, Chinese enterprises will benefit greatly from lower total cost of ownership and achieve greater productivity. I believe this experience will change the perceptions - which many Chinese enterprises still have - of PLM as 'computer aided design (CAD) + product data management (PDM)' software, and help them implement Teamcenter more strategically."

"We selected Teamcenter to establish the whole-process of cooperation between channels, customers, our supply chains and suppliers," said Zhan Li, director of IT Department for Haier Group. "Haier attaches great importance to information construction to meet requirements for implementing a global branding strategy. In our opinion, computerization is not a tool but the main component of corporate competitiveness. By deploying PLM, the number of components has been decreased by 29 percent, and enabled Haier to build a standardized system."

"Teamcenter enables us to build an integrated distributed collaboration management platform for product R&D and manufacturing, and provides us with a single source of knowledge for company product data management and decision making," said Sun Baodong, CIO of DHI. DCW Group Co., Ltd. "Through effective reuse of knowledge, we have significantly improved our product quality and reduced our R&D and design cycle by 17 percent, while production preparation time has been improved by 20 percent."

"We have selected Teamcenter for management and reuse of the lifecycle data and knowledge of integrated products and to support collaboration between our customers and the global subsidiaries of JCI. This allows us to promote the concurrent design activities of the development teams," said Ni Jiawen, director of Technical Center for Shanghai Yanfeng Johnson Controls Seating Co., Ltd. "Teamcenter is currently used in development projects and has significantly reduced the costs from concept design to mass production."

In China, an extensive range of customers use Teamcenter across different industries, especially automotive, aerospace and defense, high-tech electronics and machinery. These clients include large enterprises such as SAIC, Chery Automobile Co., Ltd., Shanghai Yanfeng Johnson Controls Seating Co., Ltd., Haier Group, Hisense, Konka, Changhong, Shenyang Liming Aero-Engine Group Corporation, Harbin Turbine Co., Ltd., Hongdu Aviation Industry Group Ltd., DHI.
