Siemens and thinkstep develop material management software

Siemens and thinkstep have developed a new integrated material management software solution called Teamcenter, to manage the material lifecycle and streamline material-driven product design.

The new solution will help manufacturers improve product performance and reliability by connecting design, engineering, analysis, compliance and manufacturing to a single source of material information. It will also help reduce errors, rework and recalls that result from the use of inaccurate material data.

“Selecting the right materials is critical in order to achieve maximum safety, performance and reliability in our business,” said John Probst, technical director, Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates.

“The Teamcenter integrated material management solution opens up new horizons for us in agile materials management that span design, engineering, simulation and manufacturing processes. In the racing world, where every second counts, we need solutions like this that enable us to create more innovative designs to give our team a competitive advantage.”

Material property management systems have evolved significantly to keep pace with the growing demand to capture, store and interrogate material test data. However, these massive volumes of information cannot be considered material intelligence unless the lifecycle of the material data is intrinsically linked with the lifecycle of the product. Teamcenter integrated material management provides this missing link between material data and true product intelligence.
