Teamcenter FAQ

1What is Teamcenter software?
Teamcenter software is an adaptable product lifecycle management (PLM) platform that allows users to manage, edit and collaborate product data and processes such as 3D designs, embedded software, documentation, and bill of materials throughout the product and manufacturing life cycle. Teamcenter is designed to connect people and processes across compartmentalized operating units isolated from their environment. The depth of the Teamcenter software portfolio allows you to solve increasingly difficult product challenges and leverage information such as manufacturing, quality, cost engineering, compliance, service, and your supply chain to develop successful products. Teamcenter software is simply a modern product solution that reduces manual effort and cost of managing and tracking any PLM process.
2What is Teamcenter used for?
Teamcenter is typically used to take control of product data and processes. Some of these processes include electronics, embedded software, 3D designs, bill of materials, and documentation. The purpose of Teamcenter is to offer returns on your product lifecycle management system by taking advantage of product information across the entire product process, such as:
  • Engineering cost
  • Manufacturing
  • Quality
  • Service
  • Compliances
  • Supply chain
Furthermore, Teamcenter is the industry standard of PLM software because it is able to adapt to changes happening within the business and manage product development.
3What is the difference between Teamcenter versus Teamcenter Rapid Start?
Teamcenter Rapid Start is the world's most widely implemented, preconfigured product data management (PDM) solution. It enables customers to grow from a PDM system to a full-fledged Teamcenter PLM system. Teamcenter Rapid Start supports all multi-CAD data management integrations including:
  • NX
  • Solid Edge
  • Siemens PLM Software
  • AutoCAD
  • Inventor®
  • SolidWorks®
Teamcenter Rapid Start integrations enable customers to configure PDM rapidly and at a low cost, with quick implementation methodology and best practices.
4Product Lifecycle Management vs. Product Data Management

PLM stands for Product Lifecycle Management. The main goal of PLM is to manage the entire product lifecycle. PLM manages the product from the moment of concept to consumer. There are typically four phases of the product lifecycle including:

  1. Product Inception
  2. Product and Engineering Designs
  3. Production
  4. Distribution and Maintenance
The primary goal of PLM is to connect information, data, processes, and people associated with the lifecycle of a product.

PDM stands for Product Data Management. PDM comprises software that manages product data and process information. Some of this information includes:

  1. Computer-aided design (CAD) data
  2. Model
  3. Part Information
  4. Material Information
  5. Production instructions
  6. Requirements
  7. Documents
PDM is used when a company needs a centralized software system to store all information related to a product.
