Teamcenter® software’s integration for AutoCAD enables you to reduce your product development cycle times and costs by enhancing your AutoCAD environment through integration with Teamcenter, the industry leading product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. Providing a single source of product data for your design and manufacturing teams, the integration provides access to a full range of PLM capabilities to further optimize your design-through-manufacturing processes.
The Teamcenter integration for AutoCAD enables design information created in AutoCAD to be captured, controlled and shared by your organization in a highly secure PLM environment with version management and access controls to ensure that the right people get the right information at the right time.
Providing a single source of product and process data, the capabilities go beyond workgroup CAD data management. The integration is optimized for scalability across a wide area network, enabling geographically distributed design centers to connect to a single database and volume server.
Using this integration, design teams can quickly search and access AutoCAD parts, assemblies and drawings to eliminate time wasted trying to find and share design information. The integration also enables your organization to eliminate unnecessary change orders by ensuring that everyone is working from the latest design information.
The Teamcenter integration for AutoCAD is a design-centric solution that leverages existing Teamcenter rules while enabling AutoCAD data to be incorporated into a multi-CAD environment.
For new Teamcenter customers who want to get up and running quickly, you can choose the Teamcenter Rapid Start deployment option for Teamcenter, which delivers a preconfigured product data management (PDM) environment that is focused on managing everyday tasks and processes for product development. Preconfigured industry best-practice workflows including design release and engineering change ensure that processes are completed consistently and efficiently.
Active Workspace is a simple and intuitive user interface for Teamcenter that enables AutoCAD designers to work efficiently and effectively in a collaborative environment. The PDM environment can be extended to include non-CAD users through Active Workspace’s browser-based user interface or integration with Microsoft Outlook.
The AutoCAD integration is supported by both Teamcenter and Teamcenter Rapid Start which power innovation and productivity by connecting people and processes with knowledge.
Teamcenter is the most widely used PLM system, which is backed by Siemens Digital Industries Software’s leadership in installation, service and support. Users of Teamcenter can easily expand the scope of their PLM implementation by taking advantage of a comprehensive portfolio of applications as well as its proven scalability in terms of performance and global implementation.
Teamcenter Rapid Start is a preconfigured deployment option for Teamcenter that manages design data, as well as everyday tasks and processes; providing an ideal entry point into the Teamcenter product line for small and medium-sized businesses.
