Have your product engineering and manufacturing teams ever faced challenges due to a lack of essential information critical to making accurate decisions throughout the product lifecycle? How have you managed last-minute changes in your product development process? Are you familiar with the benefits of seamless integration solutions like the SAP Teamcenter PLM portfolio and how they can enhance collaboration within your organization?

Product engineering and manufacturing teams often face difficulties in accessing vital information necessary for making precise product decisions that endure throughout the product lifecycle, thus eliminating the necessity for last-minute changes. The SAP Teamcenter PLM portfolio provides a well thought out integration solution, establishing a comprehensive digital thread from the product’s initial design to its lifecycle across the entire enterprise. This integration resolves data incompleteness and inaccuracy by offering a fully integrated, bi-directional digital twin that covers key integration points and standardized process scenarios right out of the box. This capability extends throughout every facet of the enterprise, fostering user connections and enabling in-depth collaboration.

The SAP and Siemens partnership was conceived with a singular vision: To deliver a comprehensive, integrated, cloud enabled PLM portfolio that offers the combined value expected from these two market leading solution providers. This webinar will cover how the SAP Teamcenter PLM portfolio can be successfully integrated into the operations of product and manufacturing engineering.
