Overall Satisfaction with Teamcenter

Teamcenter is one of the best Product Lifecycle Management software available in the market by Siemens. We are using PLM Teamcenter for creating and tracking all the processes during the product development phase. In Teamcenter, first Design department will upload all the details about products and drawings. In production phase of the new product respected departments access the details of the products and after trail we upload trial reports and other test results of the product on the Teamcenter. We have total 5 plants worldwide and each of them are connected to Teamcenter. There will be some products already making in some plants and some plants are developing it. In this case the plant which is developing the products can access the reports of other plants and make preparations accordingly.
  • You can search any documents by its name and number.
  • You can see who is owner of the documents and who edited it last.
  • You can upload any form of documents like Word, pdf or drawing files in our case which is Solid Edge files.
  • For some confidential documents you can also restrict vies to only selected persons.
  • It is useful for creating and accessing BOM and other particulars.
  • It is a little difficult to use this software. You will be needing some kind of guidance in beginning.
  • You can't access all type of files from one search methods, for different type of files you will have to search filters like keywords, part code, etc.
  • If your Teamcenter is connected to server you can not access it remotely.
  • Sometimes you have to encrypt the file before editing it.
  • Environment could be little more user friendly.
  • Cost is a little more.
  • You will definitely get Return on Investment if you know how to use it and where it is helpful most.
  • It helped us very much in developing a product faster and more efficiently.
  • You can make your decision based on reports and DTA of other similar products or based on experience of other plants.
It is a product from Siemens so you should not worry about its quality or support. In starting we needed some advice and the technical team was always there to guide us in any situation. You can trust this product blindly for your organization. You will get a quite good experience. It is a very good investment to be done for better prosperity of your organization.
Yes, it is true that Teamcenter is quite flexible for PLM, it gives you the upper hand in managing your data and resource allocation. In our organization every department has access to Teamcenter although they have different user access permissions. Some departments have only read-only permission and others have writing access to it. For a single product each department can access its drawing and customer requirements this only design can write and modify others can only read it. Production reports and others check sheets are uploaded by the manufacturing data which is useful for all other departments. Final acceptance report is accessed and edited by all the departments as it needs permission from all.
Oracle is another PLM we were thinking of buying and tried it. If you want simple user experience you should do with it.

It is well suited for large organizations and where there is more than one plan operating on the same products. If you have to develop products frequently and there is a tremendous amount of data to be shared and collected. It is useful when you want every data and reports to access easily and in one place. You can also use it where is needed to update data and notify the change to everyone. You should not go with it if you are a small organization and you don't need to develop products frequently. If you don't have too many documents or data to share you should use a server or mail for it.
