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).

Not sure where it would be well suited. If Siemens would fix all the bugs, at least, perhaps I could have an opinion here.
While I would shudder to think of the impact of significant changes on our own business (relearning/retraining) simplifying the tool greatly to improve usability and intuitiveness would help make Teamcenter far more useful to many types of businesses needing PLM/EDC software.

It is well suited in an engineering environment when reviewing CAD data. It is less appropriate to use Vis Mockup when truly accurate measures are needed.

Well suited for companies like ours that design and manufacture in-house. I'm not sure it is the best solution for companies that need to share Engineering data to external vendors or partners.

1. What is the specific scope and goal for what your organization is looking to achieve?
2. Is this driven by growth, improvements, or competitiveness and what is the justification of each?
3. What software package offered by Siemens is best suited to deliver what is needed?
4. Does our organization have the required structure, support, and resources to successfully implement this software?

NX is a good standalone CAD software. Teamcenter, however, should only be used by a company that is willing to put the time/effort/money into properly setting up the system. Otherwise it is more burdensome that it is an asset to the company.

  • How many users of the software?
  • How users are distributed across the globe?
  • What are other CAD software/s that will be integrated with Siemens PLM.
  • Who are end users of data?
  • How management can see progress?

Where very small companies or small amounts of data exist Teamcenter and Siemens PLM software is probably overkill for the price and costs to implement and maintain. For anything larger than a 50+ part assembly, 50+ users, etc, Siemens PLM should be a serious consideration during the evaluation of a PDM / PLM solution.

How many departments will be using the product?

How does each department or area within any given company work with or rely on each other? You have to know or be able to create a streamlined approach to doing work for the PLM software to really work. The software adds a lot of necessary structure.

NX is a world-class CAD software used by many of the larger companies in the Aerospace Industry. For larger vendors that deal with these companies, I'd recommend use of NX to maximize compatibility with the engineering models supplied by the customers. However, due to the cost of the software, many smaller companies should earnestly evaluate lower-cost CAD packages, (because many of those may be found to be just as effective for their needs.)

I would say it is well suited for industries that require heavy quality control. Companies must be willing to invest into the application and should not expect it to be an out of the box solution.
