Teamcenter Service Lifecycle Management Solutions
Teamcenter Service Lifecycle Management Solutions
Successful companies realize that service needs to be proactive rather than reactive, to sustain in this competitive environment. Any company that manufactures products that have a long life cycle (such are Ships, Aircraft, Engines, etc.) will benefit from SLM Solutions. Service Lifecycle Management (SLM) brings service data into PLM, which establishes collaboration between Design and Service engineering.
Teamcenter SLM modules or software are separately licensed applications that are installed as an optional overlay on top of the standard Teamcenter product. This system manages the Service Bill of Materials (sBOM) , handles Service Data and Product amendments. Data such as As-built and As-maintained structures are useful in the tracking of equipment and its associated items. For example, As-built and As-maintained structures manage all traceable items of equipments along with serial number and location. Effective asset management can be achieved by updating as maintained structure from its first built. Integrated SBOM improves traceability and effective collaboration of service stakeholders.
At PLM Nordic, we help you drive your MRO business to greater innovation and accelerate your growth. We provide SLM related services such as SLM Implementation , Enhancements, Customizations, Bulk Data migration, Teamcenter Upgrade, Defining Service BOM, Creating and updating As-built and As-Maintained BOMs, Designing workflow, etc. We provide consultation as well as services in these modules of Teamcenter SLM – Service Manager, As-built manager, Service Planner, Maximo Integration, Microservices for Service Lifecycle Management Integration.
Teamcenter Facilitates better asset utilization and maintenance planning by enabling service teams to assess accurate life characteristic status at the appropriate level. It can be used to implement lean processes across the entire Service chain.

sBOM is a managed view of all the materials required for Service. It is different from Engineering BOM (EBOM) as it focuses only on those components/parts which are important from a Service point of view. It is also called as As-Maintained because it keeps all the information regarding how the product is maintained after commissioning at the customer site.
At minimum Service, Manager’s license is required to build an as-maintained structure from E-BOM. As-Built Manager may be needed if you need to maintain an as-build structure also else you can use the first snapshot of as-maintained BOM as as-built without buying an as-built manager. Service planners and Schedulers are also licensed separately. Check above sections what each module can do to determine your needs.
Profit margins on original equipment sales are diminishing due to many factors. The service area offers lucrative opportunities to increase revenues as well as profits.
Service Planner module of Teamcenter validates the service planning ahead of time and in addition, the Service documentation is also up to date, thus service technicians get the right information at the right time which overall improves Service efficiency thereby reducing Turn Around Time.
Most of the companies, especially the ones whose Products have a Long Life cycle, don’t know the exact configuration of the asset at the customer site. There might be some changes made in the configuration such as some different spare parts that must have been used at the time of installation or servicing. Due to this lack of information Service technicians find it difficult to get tools/equipment to Service the asset whose configuration has changed over the period. For this reason, sBOM is maintained. sBOM or as-maintained BOM also has unique properties like serial number or lot number which uniquely identifies every instance of part. When problem comes we can easily trace which physical part is used where in case a recall/replacement is needed due to faults identified.
Yes, there is a content management system capable present in Teamcenter as a part of SLM solutions. So, the content that we want to translate can be sent for translation in different languages. We can also maintain the traceability of the content being translated. This also helps in keeping the translation costs down.
Yes, it can be integrated with Various ERP and CAD software.
Teamcenter MRO Solutions are a part of Teamcenter’s larger portfolio of Digital Lifecycle Management Solutions. It provides a single source of information related to the product after delivery, which helps Service engineers to search for the right information of the component at right time. Its Configuration Driven approach bridges the gap between engineering, Manufacturing, Logistics, and Maintenance departments which leads to efficient services.
Teamcenter can be implemented one step at a time in a phased approach, this ensures a quick return on investment. Furthermore, these can be expanded seamlessly based on the user needs, technology advancements, and service team integration.
