Tecnomatix advantages

Tecnomatix advantage Why it matters

Leadership Tecnomatix is the leading digital manufacturing solution based on technology, market
share, industry experience and world-class customers served. Backed by Siemens’ leader-
ship in delivery, with over five million Teamcenter users worldwide, Tecnomatix digital
manufacturing solutions are built on the most widely deployed PLM solution in the

Enterprise-scalable, The entire Siemens PLM Software portfolio is built on an open architecture, enabling
open lifecycle Tecnomatix solutions to integrate with any product data management (PDM) system.
foundation This flexibility translates into more cost-effective deployments and unparalleled flexibility
for integration with other key enterprise systems.

Unparalled data manage- The data and process management solution for Tecnomatix provides visibility and process
ment and control accountability between plant, process, resource and product configurations and collec-
tively supports real-time enforced consistency and reconciliation during change. This
reduces confusion and complexity, delineates responsibility and mitigates the risk of ris-
ing costs during new product introductions and inevitable changes to the production

Industry-specific Tecnomatix solutions are geared to support and improve processes specific to a variety of
value frameworks industries, including automotive, heavy equipment, aerospace, defense, high-tech elec-
tronics, consumer products and heavy machinery. Tecnomatix makes it easy for organiza-
tions to implement digital manufacturing solutions leveraging their industry’s best prac-
tices. Within the Tecnomatix knowledge management environment, organizations can
readily configure data structures, workflows and business rules to suit their needs.

Tecnomatix advantage Why it matters

PLM for manufacturing Other manufacturing planning solutions lack either the application coverage to improve
the entire manufacturing cycle or the knowledge management underpinnings to leverage
upstream lifecycle information. Tecnomatix is unique because it brings together a com-
prehensive suite of industry-leading, workflow-based applications covering all of the
domains influenced by your manufacturing requirements.

Efficient planning Tecnomatix leverages the Teamcenter single source of lifecycle knowledge, which creates
a foundation you can use to rationalize and leverage engineering assets and optimize/
synchronize manufacturing deliverables to reduce complexity and accelerate your take-
to-market innovations.

Optimized systems Tecnomatix allows you to tie your factory planning tools together with simulation tools,
which in turn facilitates understanding of the true work flow and material flow for a spe-
cific factory configuration. This approach enables you to interactively analyze multiple
manufacturing processes and layout scenarios, providing an intelligent basis for making
informed and smarter decisions.

Proven validation Optimization is achieved via a managed and shared environment that enables engineers
to react rapidly to changes regardless of source. System device behavior and logic can be
modeled to allow full, line- or system-level validation where errors are reduced through
dynamic interaction. This capability addresses the need for highly automated and config-
urable systems to deliver the flexibility that is required to optimize production

Lifecycle quality Quality characteristics become an integral element of the product lifecycle generating a
competitive advantage through a key business strategy. From design through production,
these characteristics are leveraged to reduce manufacturing costs and improve quality,
