PTC Windchill RV&S

PTC Integrity is an excellent source code management and version control tool, and I would suggest anyone to use it for that purpose. We can even define our workflows using individual forms for implementing Change Management, Defect Management and Access management requests. If properly used, this tool is great for managing our code for very long periods, considering my 4-5 years of usage.Though the UI could be better, and integration with some application servers could be better implemented, this tool is a good tool.

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

PTC Windchill RV&S

  • PTC Integrity helps engineers write better requirements. Better written requirements mean less issues for warranty.
  • PTC Integrity provides a database that is virtually limitless. Product size or scope no longer has to be an issue.
  • You don't have to save.....PTC Integrity does this for you.

  • 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

PTC Windchill RV&S

  • It can be overwhelming with the number of tabs, functions and ways to achieve the same result. The average user may struggle with learning the tool.
  • The text editing in Integrity is weak and does not provide many options. Because of this, many user decide to use MS word instead, to document requirements.

  • 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.

I do not make decisions on what tool my company uses. I am just the user of the tool and such decisions are not handled by me. If I were to make such decisions, I would definitely renew MKS, considering the amount of data we have stored in MKS and the current number of users who are familiar with the system

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

PTC Integrity comparatively could be considered a nice Source code management, Version controlling tool and could be compared with tools like StarTeam. If the integration to move/migrate code could be integrated into this tool, it would become an extremely powerful tool.

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.

PTC Integrity administration can be somewhat daunting. They have been able to help with every question that I have submitted. Their support website is very easy to understand and submit questions and their phone support is wonderful

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

We evaluated IBM's offering and CMstat. IBM's offering is "klugy", we needed Rhapsody, ClearQuest and ClearCase to get all the components to answer our requirements. And it's very costly. CMstat offered a good change managment solution, but was lacking in version control features. The interface was antiquated.

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

PTC Windchill RV&S

  • MKS Integrity has proved to be particularly useful in the software development process by increasing employee effieciency
  • MKS integrity has also made software development a very efficient process and makes feature releases and bug fixing a lot easier
  • In addition to the above, our organization has been able to support manufacturing easily by reverting to a previous software version in case of an emergency.
  • It has also led to faster time to market for new products.

  • 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
