Teamcenter Integration for NX

Best-in-class engineering design and collaboration solution for any size team using NX

Teamcenter® integration for NX™ software allows you to reduce your product development cycle times by enhancing your NX environment to both manage and accelerate design collaboration for any size engineering team. Teamcenter integration for NX provides seamless management, control and security for your NX data, enabling users to rapidly search for designs and manages data revisions, product configurations and changes to those product configurations in single or multi-site deployments.

Meeting business challenges

Your company is continually challenged to reduce development costs, improve productivity and increase quality. In addition, your designers require 100 percent confidence in their ability to find the latest information, work on correct versions and synchronize data between different company sites. At the same time, you must adapt to changing global markets, often moving from centralized product development to distributed design with global partners. Teamcenter integration for NX provides live global access to product information, accelerates your processes for product change and successfully manages your most precious asset – product knowledge.

Multi-site engineering collaboration

The capabilities of Teamcenter integration for NX go beyond workgroup CAD data management, enabling design teams of any size, in different locations and throughout your supply chain, to work closely together to streamline product development processes through multi-site collaboration. All design information created using NX is captured, controlled and shared by your global development teams in a single, highly secure Teamcenter environment, while version management and access control ensure that the right people get the right information at the right time.

Transparent user interface

Teamcenter integration for NX provides uninterrupted productivity and superior usability for design teams. Users are able to access live Teamcenter information including check-in/check-out, maturity status, revision, where-used, what’s changed, project assignments and more.

Multi-CAD collaboration

NX multi-CAD support enables design teams to load and assemble designs from any major CAD system into NX for multi-CAD product development. Teamcenter automatically manages both source CAD and JT representations while eliminating unnecessary delays caused by constant data translation. NX’s innovative approach to multi-CAD collaboration enables your extended enterprise to leverage your other CAD investments.

Leverage Teamcenter product lifecycle management

Teamcenter’s product lifecycle capabilities surpass those of traditional CAD file management by capturing all of your CAD, CAM, CAE product and process knowledge, including requirements and technical documentation, and relating these assets to a common product structure. Teamcenter’s workflow management capabilities enable you to manage product change, enforce company-specific business rules and efficiently execute your automated product-related processes. In addition, Teamcenter solutions easily expand to meet more of your business needs as you grow.
