Teamcenter Customization

Teamcenter customizations are typically programmable automation that saves a lot of user time, for example

  • Custom reports for single or multi-level BOM report with custom columns and formats.

  • Single click automation to check assembly or parts before release.

  • Workflow handlers to trigger activities automatically or check things.

  •  Integration with legacy or custom software.

  • Data Migration utilities for handling huge quantities of data.

Teamcenter provides a lot of APIs that can be used for many different applications.

 

We have specialist Teamcenter developers on all kinds of Teamcenter customizations: 

  • RAC customization for Rich Client-based changes.

  • ITK customizations for server-side customizations and standalone utilities. 

  • SOA customizations. 

  • Combination of above. 

  • Active Workspace Customisations.

  • Any other type of customizations using different programming languages. 

 

At PLM Nordic, we focus on the smart customization principle.

  • We make customizations as independent as possible reducing the impact on core functions.

  • We make customizations easy for future upgrades.

  • We employ best practices and past experience to give you the best value for money.

  • We evaluate different technologies and choose the right one.

  • We create proper documentation and test reports for you. 

 

We also offer a unique ©De-customization service to :

  • Reduce complexity

  • Improve performance

  • Reduce dependency on programming

  • Reduce maintenance cost

  • Reduce the cost of errors

As Teamcenter evolved, it is possible that past customizations can be achieved with configuration changes only.
