🌎 Unleash the future of PLM

Teamcenter delivers the future of PLM, today

The future means change. Our proven ability to adapt and move with the leading edge of technology means you can embrace the future of PLM today. 

Our role as the PLM leader isn’t something that happened over night. We’ve been in the business of managing data and powering product innovation for 60 years!! In the earlier years, my dad worked for one of the companies that eventually became Siemens PLM. I remember stories of shake tables in the basement that would simulate the wear on tear on motorcycles and other products. They could run physical tests and capture data to improve design – pretty fancy at that time! Fast forward to today when you can run thousands of tests virtually on a fully digital product. We’ve proven time and time again that, as technology evolves, so do we.​

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are key to the future of PLM

We introduced classification AI in Teamcenter a few years ago to help pre-populate classification fields and make recommendations on how parts should be organized. Since then, we’ve continued to push forward with exciting Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning solutions that help your teams collaborate, be more productive, and ultimately deliver performing products to market faster.

The first example of this is our new Teamcenter for Microsoft Teams app. This new app is designed to elevate collaboration within product engineering and manufacturing through seamless integration with Teamcenter. This innovative tool harnesses the power of generative AI to simplify and enhance the problem-solving process. By enabling the creation and management of problem reports in each user’s native language, users can efficiently address challenges within the familiar environment of Microsoft Teams. The intuitive design of Teamcenter ensures collaboration across various devices and teams to effortlessly transform complex problems into innovative solutions. Embrace a smarter, more connected way of working with Siemens Teamcenter and unlock the full potential of collaborative product development and manufacturing.

The Teamcenter SLM app for Salesforce is another great example of a solution that leverages the power of AI. The app uses Einstein, Salesforce’s AI technology, to scan knowledge articles created with data from service plans authored in Teamcenter. It uses that information to assist service teams – from processing customer service calls to performing service activities. AI + PLM connected with CRM accelerates servitization and supports a whole new way of approaching service to drive-up revenue, service efficiencies, and customer satisfaction.

Siemens and AI leader Instrumental have teamed up to deliver next level quality management! We’ve combined powerful AI capabilities that enable engineers to identify potential failures and root causes PLUS closed-loop problem solving processes, such as 8D, CAPA, and more to bring you a dramatically improved quality cycle that connects all data along the product lifecycle!
