Manage Your Engineering Data & Processes Better with Teamcenter PLM Solutions.

Schedule a discovery session to get started. Saratech will tailor the right PLM solutions for your business needs and budget.

Congratulations on Choosing Teamcenter PLM!

As a Saratech PLM customer, our goal is to get your system installed and running quickly and smoothly. We’ll first engage you with a simple structured questionnaire that captures your product development process needs. Using this information, we will design your Teamcenter installation by mixing, matching, and configuring our standard options. These options reflect our years of experience with Teamcenter installs. We can work with both on-premise and cloud-based infrastructure, and help you choose between them, if needed. Our team will then implement your Teamcenter PLM system using an Agile approach with project visibility, thorough system testing, and customer sign-off prior to go-live, and a hypercare period after go-live where we proactively monitor the system to ensure a smooth transition to your end-users. If needed, we also offer post-launch maintenance and help desk support.

By following these best practices and tailoring the implementation to your organization's specific needs, you can maximize the return on your Teamcenter investment and realize the full potential of PLM in improving your product development processes and overall business performance.

CLEARLY DEFINE OBJECTIVES

Clearly define your goals and objectives for implementing Teamcenter. Understand what specific challenges you want to address and what outcomes you expect from the PLM system. Having clear objectives will help you focus on the areas that matter most to your organization.

THOROUGHLY ASSESS NEEDS AND REQUIREMENTS

Conduct a comprehensive assessment of your organization's PLM needs and requirements. Involve key stakeholders from different departments to understand their pain points and priorities. This will ensure that the implementation addresses the real needs of the business.

ENGAGE TOP MANAGEMENT SUPPORT

Secure support from top management and involve them in the decision-making process. Having executive buy-in ensures that the implementation receives the necessary resources and attention, and it sets the right tone for driving adoption across the organization.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT TEAM AND PARTNERS

Assemble a skilled and dedicated implementation team that includes experts from both your organization and the PLM vendor. Additionally, choose a reliable and experienced implementation partner, if needed, to guide you through the process.

PROPERLY PLAN AND SEQUENCE

Develop a detailed implementation plan, including a sequence of modules and functionalities to be deployed. Prioritize critical areas and plan a phased approach to implementation, ensuring smoother integration with existing processes and systems.

EFFECTIVE CHANGE MANAGEMENT

Understand that implementing PLM will likely bring changes to existing processes and workflows. Invest in change management efforts to prepare employees for these changes and address any resistance. Training and support are crucial to help users adapt to the new system.

DATA MIGRATION AND QUALITY

Ensure a smooth and accurate data migration from existing systems to Teamcenter. Pay attention to data quality and cleanup to avoid issues caused by inaccurate or redundant data.

PROMOTE USER ADOPTION

Actively promote user adoption and encourage employees to embrace the PLM system. Highlight the benefits of using Teamcenter and provide ongoing training and support to help users fully utilize its capabilities.

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Treat Teamcenter implementation as an ongoing journey rather than a one-time project. Continuously review and optimize processes, collect feedback from users, and seek ways to improve the system's performance and functionality.

MEASURE AND TRACK SUCCESS

Establish key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure the success of your Teamcenter implementation. Regularly track these metrics to evaluate the system's impact on your organization's productivity, efficiency, and bottom line.

 

The PLM Process | Teamcenter Deployment Sequence

To determine the most suitable deployment sequence, organizations typically conduct a thorough assessment of their PLM needs, create a roadmap, and work with PLM consultants or experts to guide them through the implementation process. It is important to note that the deployment sequence can vary based on the organization's priorities, existing systems, and specific business needs. Some companies may choose to deploy additional custom or industry-specific modules based on their requirements.

A typical deployment sequence might include the following modules:

  • TEAMCENTER PRODUCT DATA MANAGEMENT (PDM)

    The PDM module is the foundation of Teamcenter and is usually one of the first modules deployed. It involves storing, organizing, and managing product-related data, including 3D CAD models, documents, and other files. It establishes a centralized data repository and ensures that product information is accessible to relevant stakeholders.
  • TEAMCENTER CHANGE MANAGEMENT

    Once the PDM module is in place, the Change Management module can be deployed. This module focuses on managing changes to product data and processes, including change tracking, version control, and release management.
  • TEAMCENTER WORKFLOW MANAGEMENT

    Workflow Management is often deployed alongside Change Management or after it. This module enables the automation and optimization of business processes, ensuring that tasks are routed to the right people and completed in a timely manner.
  • TEAMCENTER MANUFACTURING PROCESS MANAGEMENT (MPM)

    The MPM module deals with managing manufacturing processes, such as process planning, work instructions, and resource allocation. It helps ensure a smooth transition from product design to production.
  • TEAMCENTER REQUIREMENTS MANAGEMENT

    This module focuses on capturing, managing, and tracing product requirements throughout the product development lifecycle. It helps ensure that products meet customer needs and comply with industry standards.
  • TEAMCENTER SIMULATION AND VALIDATION

    This module, if utilized, integrates with simulation and analysis tools to enable virtual testing and validation of product designs, reducing the need for physical prototypes.
  • TEAMCENTER SUPPLIER COLLABORATION

    Once the core modules are in place, Supplier Collaboration can be deployed to facilitate collaboration with suppliers and vendors, streamlining the supply chain processes.
  • TEAMCENTER REPORTING AND ANALYTICS

    The Reporting and Analytics module is often implemented alongside or after other modules to provide insights into product development processes, performance metrics, and data-driven decision-making.

PLM streamlines and automates product development processes, leading to faster time-to-market and increased innovation. It helps teams manage design changes, track revisions, and efficiently release new product versions.

Better Product Quality and Compliance

With PLM, organizations can enforce standardized processes and ensure that products meet regulatory requirements and customer specifications. It enables thorough documentation and traceability of product information.

REDUCED COST AND WASTE

PLM helps optimize product development processes, reducing rework, scrap, and unnecessary iterations. By avoiding delays and identifying potential issues early on, organizations can achieve cost savings.

Improved Supplier Collaboration

PLM allows for better collaboration with suppliers and vendors. It helps manage supplier data, track supplier performance, and ensure timely and accurate delivery of components.

Risk Mitigation

PLM helps identify and address potential risks early in the product development process. It allows for simulation and testing of product designs, reducing the likelihood of failures and recalls.

Increased Product Innovation

PLM provides a structured environment for capturing and managing ideas and feedback from various sources. This encourages innovation and the development of new and improved products.

Simplified Regulatory Compliance

PLM systems can help manage compliance with industry standards, regulations, and certifications. It assists in documenting adherence to specific requirements, making audits and certifications more manageable.

Better Decision Making

With access to real-time data and analytics, PLM enables data-driven decision-making at every stage of the product lifecycle. This leads to more informed and effective business decisions.

Lifecycle Traceability

PLM ensures that all product-related data and activities are recorded and can be traced back to their origins. This is crucial for maintaining a comprehensive history of the product throughout its lifecycle.
