Siemens AG Adopts Teamcenter Software as Corporatewide Standard

Sept. 8, 2009
Plano, Texas-based Siemens PLM Software recently announced that parent company Siemens AG has adopted Teamcenter software as its corporatewide standard for product data management (PDM). Teamcenter will serve as the foundation for Siemens PLM process.

"Siemens is an innovation leader and sets major technological trends in all its businesses," Siemens AG CIO Norbert Kleinjohann said. "PLM is an essential enabler of innovation. Teamcenter has the proven breadth of functionality, scalability and low cost of ownership to create value for all our diverse businesses."

As Siemens' new corporate standard, Teamcenter will address functional areas in engineering and product design -- such as product structure management, configuration management, product structure workflow and release management -- in all of its deployments throughout the Siemens global enterprise, according to the company.

The decision to standardize on Teamcenter is effective immediately and applies to all Siemens units and majority holdings.
