CorelCAD

CorelCAD is ideally suited for creating mechanical 2D drawings for metal parts and assemblies. It is equally suited for architectural drawings. It is less well suited for creating 3D models. It also works well as an intermediary to convert between different CAD systems.CorelCAD offers a compelling and relatively low-cost solution that covers the vast majority of business needs creating both internal use drawings, drawings for fabricated parts, and creating more elaborate drawings to incorporate within CorelDraw documents.

Siemens PLM

Well suited for:
  • Enterprise companies who want to enforce a specific workflow to get products from concept to production;
  • Companies who have a large workforce that do not talk to each other in person but communicate product data between departments in the form of datapacks.
Not Well Suited for:
  • Companies and individuals who have very few products of which many are very simple. The cost is just not justified for these.
  • Companies without an IT department to manage the Teamcenter software (it is a lot of work and requires a full-time administrator).

Pros

CorelCAD

  • 2D and 3D mechanical drawings
  • Interchange with AutoCAD users and other CAD users.
  • Publish technical data sheets and drawings.
  • Creating PDF documents

Siemens PLM

  • Teamcenter tracks & creates revisions pretty well, but that is after much customization we've done to it.
  • Quite a bit of search power, although very complicated and challenging to use the search features.
  • A database that can be integrated with ERP systems, but that does require much code writing and an SOA system.
  • Document security -- not sure if these features are out-of-the-box or customizations, but this capability is highly valuable to protect IP.

Cons

CorelCAD

  • For those unfamiliar with AutoCAD the interface can be a little overwhelming.
  • Expanded 3D functionality
Herm Harrison | TrustRadius Reviewer

Siemens PLM

  • Within the NX CAD package, there are often various little bugs and glitches that we come across in daily use. We generally submit incident reports to Siemens on these.
  • In general, the Teamcenter software package lacks ease of use, general users within the department require frequent intervention and help from higher users for seemingly simple tasks.

Because of our current customer needs, we will most likely maintain use of Siemens PLM products for some time. Aside from the initial software cost, we pay for yearly maintenance. Maintaining our yearly maintenance licensing with Siemens, we receive access to all of the latest software releases, as well as premier technical support

As previously mentioned, due to the intense amount of features and modules present in the software, the usability of the software suffers greatly. Many of the features are not used in our context, and many of the modules are not purchased, but the options are still present on the interface leading to a lot of clutter, much of which is never used. The interfaces suffer from a lack of design and tend to feel like a conglomerate of Windows 98 elements.

Corel's support has always been outstanding. Technical support is always available to assist with installation and licensing issues and there is generally additional free assistance for a time period after purchase. Corel also offers online tutorials and other self-help resources. Ongoing and available support is one of the outstanding features Corel has always provided.

I have never personally dealt with Siemens customer support, but the consultants who did the initial setup of Siemens PLM (Teamcenter) did a really great job in answering all of our support queries in record time. Many of the queries were directed back to Siemens and answers were given via the consultants; this process never took more than 24 hours and usually solved the problems we had.

Alternatives Considered

CorelCAD

AutoCAD compares favorably to TurboCAD at a comparable price point to its mid-line product. TurboCAD offers both higher level and lower level products that expand on the capabilities of CorelCAD, but for the majority of users, CorelCAD offers a good compromise of features to price point while maintaining a structure that will be familiar to AutoCAD users.When compared with AutoCAD products, it aligns most closely with AutoCAD LT and compares favorably in terms of functions and features. AutoCAD has moved primarily to a subscription model which I personally do not like. With CorelCAD, buy it, own it, and upgrade when new features are needed.

Siemens PLM

Siemens PLM software is a complete packgage that fully inegrates PLM, CAD, CAE, and CAM. It drove effciency, innovation, and workflows within my organization. Each individual piece of software is either the leader in its own area of functionality or comparable to the competition that I have used previously.

It's a very robust and mature tool. The only thing that would make it better is the have a version embrace the cloud, which I'm sure is underway, but it's complicated, so it will take more time. But when it's done, look out. It will be near-perfect!

Return on Investment

CorelCAD

  • CorelCAD easily pays for itself even when not a primary product.
  • Due to its similarity to AutoCAD, it's a reasonable solution with a shortened learning curve for existing AutoCAD users.
Herm Harrison | TrustRadius Reviewer

Siemens PLM

  • Decreased time to process ECNs with electronic workflow and notifications
  • Ability to track status of ECNs has given us a better overview of the health of our process and resource constraints
  • Version control for released items going through revision has reduced risk of manufacturing the wrong revision
