The worldâs leading manufacturer of trains and aircrafts, Bombardier, has partnered up with Siemens to further explore and extend the Teamcenter portfolio for product lifecycle management (PLM). This way, the manufacturer will be able to optimise its engineering processes in order to develop, produce, and support its products.
Using Teamcenter to establish an integrated solution spanning across engineering disciplines and downstream users could facilitate the use of consistent processes and leverage collaboration across the enterprise. Bombardier looks forward to what we can achieve from these capabilities, said Brigitte LariviÃ¨re, head of Value chain and Functional experience, Bombardier Information Solutions.
Teamcenter provides programs spanning across electrical, mechanical, software, systems, and wire harnesses, with an integrated single source of information and data that allows visibility and traceability throughout each stage of the development process. Combined with the use of a digital twin and a globally common process, once implemented, Teamcenter can provide Bombardier with improved quality of information within an integrated execution strategy.
Implementing Teamcenter can help provide Bombardier with greater flexibility in their product development cycles, which is critical in todayâs competitive production environment, said Bob Jones, executive vice president, Siemens PLM Software. Insight from the digital twin at each stage of the development cycle will inform and enable better products, ultimately benefiting their customers.
Siemens is a global technology powerhouse that helps manufacturers deliver products that meet technical and performance requirements within budgets and on time. Supply chains are continually being transformed to optimise productivity while maintaining a highly dynamic and virtual workforce, which can become a challenge at times if the right help is not on its way. The solutions offered by Siemens PLM Software take advantage of industry-leading practices to enable aerospace companies to manage entire product life cycles.
Bombardier is a global leader in the transportation industry, creating innovative and game-changing planes and trains. It employs over 65,000 people across four business segments: Transportation, Business Aircraft, Commercial Aircraft and Aerostructures and Engineering Services, and has production and engineering sites in 28 countries.
