"Great functionality offering, very poor execution & implementation"

What do you like best?

I like most of the release ("workflow") functionality, the ability to release similar items. While the hierarchical nature of items/records is very clunky, there's some value in that as well.

What do you dislike?

Instability - items, perspectives and views getting corrupt, cache getting corrupt, Java crashing, est. Also, Java being a few versions behind what works with other Java-using tools is very inconvenient. The excessive complexity and lack of intuitiveness of use is a problem as well. All of these issues cause work productivity problems, which cause many man-hours of hidden cost and overall value reduction.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Thoroughly review other alternatives, and if possible, do "test drives". Talk to both grass-roots users and administrators of all potential candidates before making a decision. It would be good to get both engineering and manufacturing personnel - the folks that do the work every day - to review candidate tools, which will help get truly valuable opinions as well as build concensus on whatever tool is decided upon.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

General engineering document control, life cycle management, etc.

"Teamcenter & Vismockup application - A usefull tool for prodcut life cycle management !!"

What do you like best?

I have worked for various leading US based OEMs and most of the companies uses Siemens team center application. I truly recommend this software...its easy to learn, easy to use, easy to maintain your designs and also you could integrate it with CN (change notices) process. So, that it will work as a complete life cycle tool.

What do you dislike?

Well...there are always some things which you would like to improve. I can't complain about this software but wish the possible improvements in 2 areas which is typically not in the hand of use. These are part of software installation team/IT. But as a user..i donot think, I worry about these.

1. You should have latest hardware/performance software.

2. Network connectivity can impact your work

But again I believe..if you have latest laptops/computers with latest processors and better network..you could overcome this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I advise to implement team center if you are not already using it and can afford the software. It will be helpful specially if you are executing new product development projects and multiple team are interfacing on the same. Very helpful tool !!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are couple of benefits here..

1. You could integrate team center application with any CAD software like Creo, Solidworks or so on. It will enable you to open your designs in CAD software using Team center and then you could work on your designs and upload.

2.Here the other added benefits is...you could also refer the previous design versions which you saved in Team center for an particular part and reuse. You donot need to save local files.

3. Team center Vis Mockup application helps you to review the complete machine JT model which is pretty time consuming if you open the complete machine 3D model in any CAD sotware.

4. Vismockup also helps you to compare designs

What PLM solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Teamcenter"

What do you like best?

I like that you can store all different types of data in one place, compared to usually having to open different programs for viewing different types of files.

What do you dislike?

It's a bit confusing to get around. I'm pretty new to the program, and it may be the way my company stores the files and information, but I find it slightly difficult to navigate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It may be easier to take a tutorial to fully understand how the program interacts with the company's documents and saved files to be able to navigate faster and with more ease.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm working in remediation of medical devices and it is helping me better understand components, previous revisions and the component history, and the relationship with other components. I've realized it's very useful to have all the different documents or analyses in one place, rather than having multiple programs open.

"A place for everything and everything in its place"

What do you like best?

Is so customisable but not everybody knows how, you will need program skills and Database knowledge.

About the interface, is clear and clean, to final users there is not hard to find the buttons.

What do you dislike?

The server installation is so complicated and only can be executed by a Siemens engineer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Put special attention to the database, grows so fast.

Depending the number of users the LAN can be saturated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Is easy to organize, share consult information.

You can audit the history of change from a design, document, assembly, etc.

Includes Workflows that is a graphical way to track tasks. It pull the information to fluid all over the Company.

"Master Data Analyst, I use it to create KCIDs for p/n and transfer and load into SAP"

What do you like best?

It's pretty much straight forward for what you need to fill out to complete the task. It only takes a few minutes to transfer to SAP and I'm able to go back and edit and resend if needed.

What do you dislike?

My teamcenter seems to crash alot. If a part is under certain Group I.D.'s we can't see them, we want to avoid duplicates and also be able to set up New ones correctly. When you transfer and there's an error it doesn't really tell you what that specific error is.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps to properly code product p/n, create and load dwgs, sometimes it shows BOMS and see alternative id's.

Teamcenter can be customized to suit corporate process. It has 4 tier architecture to serve large group of users. Data can secured for ITAR and IP compliance. Graphics can be configured and viewed. Integrates well with lot of CAD softwares to manage cad data.

What do you dislike?

Too complicated to implement. Lot of upfront work to get it going. Little inconsistency in performance. It is almost impossible to use as out of box product. Always needs to be customized.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure good team of internal people work vendor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Product change management. Product configuration management. Manufacturing data management.

Easy of access to data by entire corporation. Concurrent design and development of product. Even at end of life cycle of product environment disposal compliance can managed.

"Exceptional Optionality and Functionality, but Cluttered Design"

What do you like best?

There are countless ways to configure the system to fit each user in the best possible manner. Allows for easy, global collaboration.

What do you dislike?

The system can quickly become very cluttered, and (at my workplace) runs very, very slowly. Not sure if this is a Siemens issue, or workplace-specific one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Teamcenter in our new product introduction and quoting processes. It has instituted workflows for us to track and manage these processes, which has proved helpful.

"Good system to control you NX files and Engineering Product Changes"

What do you like best?

The Active Work Space Interface is friendly and intuitive. No need to train end users. It manages a lot of CAD flavors and integrate with major ERP systems as well.

What do you dislike?

The system is expensive for most of the small companies. For simple changes to the data model, e.g. add a new attribute or List of Values, you need a lot of effort and some times close all the end user sessions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Review other alternatives specially if you will not manage NX data

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reduce time looking for product data

Reuse product information like drawings, CAD models, etc.

Reduce time publishing Product Changes to the hole Enterprise.

Avoid Retyping bill of materials between systems. e.g

"Teamcenter for Engineering Company Project"

What do you like best?

Teamcenter was a way for me to view and understand the overall design of Mars 2020 without having to open each part individually (which would crash my computer). It also really helps you find parts quickly and then open them as a part file from there.

What do you dislike?

It was a little confusing trying to find a part and I don't think you could search for it. This is more for things with 200+ components, otherwise it was very easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's so much quicker and more organized than just using NX for the entire thing. It also allows you to see part revisions and drawings!

"Team center review"

What do you like best?

I liked the new active space (AWC) consumer goes to assist with our fringe users who are not within the system everyday and i discover the capacity to change and convey work processes rapidly a genuine point of interest.

What do you dislike?

I like siemens team centre but I am not really happy with the maintenance policies. you are continuously "improving" the software and the new version are not compatible with old versions, so we are forced to pay for the "upgrades".

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this to other who are trying to consider teamcenter, but with a installation and using training.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

in my company we used teamcenter mostly to manage our designs and engineering analysis data. but if we part the compatibility reasons here, we mostly benefit from its capability of integration with CAD and CAE.

"Amazing PLM Tool - very user friendly"

What do you like best?

User friendliness, easy to installation compare to other PLM Tools which are available in market.

Easy Installation process

What do you dislike?

Not really dislike,

1. Custom handlers of Workflow are bit boring stuff for me (sorry to say that), Is it possible to add it through BMIDE.

3. Needlessly complex to administer.

2. just a suggestion that why don't we combine Teamcenter with NX as other PLM Tools as doing in the market (we will not make the customers compulsion to but the complete suit)

The other thing is we need the facility like MQL (which is available with Enovia) in Teamcenter

Recommendations to others considering the product

1. Is it possible to have a central database of Teamcenter as of Enovia (should be open for Integration with other Tools)

2. The other thing is we need the facility like MQL (which is available with Enovia) in Teamcenter

The best thing of Teamcneter is its BMIDE, which is very much user friendly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to implement the PLM in the supplier industry.

"Sr. Director, Product Management "

What do you like best?

Teamcenter is the full-range PLM system with very good multi-CAD design data management, BOM and configuration management. Capabilities of Project and Portfolio Management and Requirements management allow to address wide range of business processes and defectively manage engineering data.

What do you dislike?

Teancenter is hard to implement. There is no pre-defined data models and templates. for business processes. Significant effort and investment requires to configure and customize Teamcenter to address vert typical business processes and workflows.

Teamcenter doesn't offer proven cloud solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Teamcenter to address multiCAD design data management with JT visualization and BOM management. Teamcenter has very good PLM platform capabilities for Supply-chain management and Requirements management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Shorten time for products design reviews and, as result, faster approval of preliminary designs, which allow to introduce new products to the sales much faster.

Reuse of engineering parts using configuration management makes engineering projects cost much cheaper.

"I am a PLM Consultant"

What do you like best?

It gives major of the solutions through Out Of The Box (OOTB).Under master-model concept, Since the model and part are now under separate items, it’s trivial to revise them independently; just revise one, but not the other.

What do you dislike?

Its really hard to store drawings in Teamcenter. It has a very difficult approach to separate the data set in two files. Reviewing the drawing and model in 2 different workflow is not possible as they both are the same (This is something they need to really enhance) and also you cannot have independent revisions of the model and drawing under model-model concept In master-model concept, workflow takes an Item Revision as a target and then processes a review process for relevant attached datasets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Multi-detail drawings are probably possible to support, but it’d be an awkward setup. You’d have to figure out which model’s item revision contains the drawing, or have the same drawing dataset referenced by multiple item revisions, each one of which contains a different model dataset which is detailed by the drawing.

"Not great for SMB Market"

What do you like best?

It has many features and functions that are great on paper and in theory if you can ever successfully implement.

What do you dislike?

Painful implementation process for setting up n-tier architecture

Tedious installation process for setting up the clients with CAD integration.

Horrible user interface, not intuitive at all.

Slow performance over the network when working with 3rd party CAD software

Limited supply of knowledgable companies or consultants to support the software

Many bugs when integrating with 3rd party CAD software

Horrible and expensive licensing model

Recommendations to others considering the product

Talk with many other companies similar to your business about their experiences with the sofware. Have dedicated project team throughout the implementation. Develop a very strong training plan.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CAD management/vaulting. Benefits are minimal. It's been a painful process with the CAD phase that we have not expanded scope of the system.

"Best in class PLM system"

What do you like best?

Codeless customization, or simply configuration now days, is very nice with the BMIDE product for Teamcenter. Writing custom extensions in C or java are straightforward and powerful. The new active workspace (AWC) client is going to help with our fringe users who aren't in the system everyday. It provides a streamlined windows 8 like web client. I like this new direction and can't wait to see where it goes.

What do you dislike?

Performance of the main rich client leaves a lot to be desired on standard business laptops. It's also not great at remote sites, however it is still useful. We recently switched database systems since Oracle RAC on IBM systems is no longer supported. This new oracle exadata system has help performance dramatically but Teamcenter is still designed to run on engineering hardware. I hope that the move towards active workspace overtakes this rich client within a few years as the main client.

Having to take the system down to deploy changes can be a pain. Even simple list changes require a downtime, there is a mechanism to do this live, but it's still not recommended by Siemens. Being global we are 24/5 operation and have to schedule these on the weekends.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a global company and now everyone can be on the same PLM/CAD solution. Previously we had many PLM systems that were not connected. Now that we are on one, we can enforce global process: change management, bom management and complete product lifecycle management.

"Teamcenter Survey - NUP"

What do you like best?

I manage the Engineereing Change portion of Teamcenter functionality: I find the ability to change and deploy workflows quickly a true advantage.

A little background: Milwaukee Tool has had an established and highly successful NPD Process for years. Having had no experience with Teamcenter when we first considered a PLM system, it was a matter of translating that established process into Teamcenter terms and worklows. We minimized customization to maintain COTs to reduce need for third party coding - but could not completely eliminate it. As we have passed through the learning curve over the past year, it became evident that our original workflows were too "intense" and time consuming. Reduction of touchpoints anad decreased EC implementation time and User frustration.

What do you dislike?

As Admin, because I continually use the system . . . I can't really pinpoint a "dislike" . . . oh, I take that back. I have issues with Subscribe. Users, however, complain about the following: a) it's not intuitive. b) Design Release Task is not connected to the ECR or ECN (you have to use Impact Analysis to find it) c) EC completion takes too long d) system is slow (could nap between picks sometimes) e) Multi-site configuration is a blessing and a curse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need a simplified user interface. Frequent comment from Users is: Why can't it work like Amazon.com or Netflix?!?!? More intuitive, simplier dashboard .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Milwaukee Tool/TTi is a large global corporation -- with locations around the world. Prior to Teamcenter, we used several CAD tools, a multiple databases, disjointed from the CAD, to release ECs, and exchange of CAD files and communications regarding design by email. All Users have a central hub, Teamcenter, to consolidate start of a new Design, maintenance of current product and 24 hr access/sharing for the Global team therefore reducing time to Market.

"Teamcenter 8.3 rich client - Usage and application support experience "

What do you like best?

Design Data Management, BOM management and specially variants. CAD integration with industry standard tools provide more flexibility to cad user in synchronizing CAD attributes in Teamcenter. Embedded visualization is always icing on the cake.

What do you dislike?

4tier Rich client installation process is cumbersome. Requirement of admin rights is something which is not acceptable by most of IT groups.

The other area which is not as user friendly as it should be is _ MPP (Manufacturing Process Planner). For a manufacturing product engineer interface is way complex.

Recommendations to others considering the product

1. Effective configuration Management

2. Wide range of rule and action handlers to design a robust workflow as per business process

3. Teamcneter community and multisite provides a great collaboration.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have actively worked on lot many product configuration using effective and variants. Kind of features provided by tool is really efficient.

"This product is used in my work for model management."

What do you like best?

I enjoy the CAD integration and organization that is controlled by Teamcenter.

What do you dislike?

I use and older version for my work, Teamcenter 2007. It runs well and gets the job done. There are some errors that come with putting a status on a model, limitations that causes errors. There are also ways around those errors but the error report is too vague that the fixes are more tribal knowledge in my job that self deciphering issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Teamcenter for me is used as a database for model and assembly control. The benefit of this is the obvious function of allowing me and coworkers alike to use the database to create and modify models.

"Teamcenter is an effective, if un-lovely, tool for product management"

What do you like best?

Teamcenter is an open toolset - before configuration it enforces few rules and hence can be adapted to fit almost any business process. It has robust data management capability and, because of it's large user base, there are plenty of skilled people available for projects

What do you dislike?

Teamcenters open-ness means it will always need configuration and it takes strong management to keep this under control. The deployment process is a definite weakness, the build process is too manual and it is easy for steps to be missed. The UI is also in need of an overhaul - as well as looking quite old-fashioned, it relies on Java and there are common issues with screens not re-drawing properly and needing to manually refresh the screen at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is little functional difference between TC and the main alternatives - Windchill and Enovia. CAD integration remains a key consideration as do electrical design products and CAE. Depending on the rest of the IT Landscape and the product being replaced, TC's particular way of working and it's UI may make adoption more difficult than Windchill, which is web based and more modern.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been involved with some very large and complicated TC programmes. In some cases, TC was replacing a legacy PDM tool that was no longer supported or it has been used provide a single tool for product management, replacing a collection of tools. In particular, ensuring consistency within an organisation has been a key goal - both in terms of process and data quality. TC has provided this, in one case ensuring transfers to ERP were 100% successful following deployment due to robust data checks and a rigorous process.

"Teamcenter for a global enterprise"

What do you like best?

- Scalable solution to support user, location growth (Mergers and Acquisitions)

- MultiCAD Support

- Can start low from CAD/PDM, but grow into ECM, Manufacturing Data/Process Management, ERP integration, Plant Simulation etc....

What do you dislike?

- Dated UI (Although Active Worksapce looks interesting), which required a client push

- Lot of the BMIDE changes require downtime, which is quite challenging in a global environment

- ECAD integration specifically Altium (or lack there off)

- CAD Integration for non Siemens tools can/should be improved

Recommendations to others considering the product

This applies to large organizations:

- Perform a PLM assessment using a 3rd party, document roadmap/ROI and execute to the roadmap.

- Besides understanding requirements, configuring, testing and deploying a robust solution that meets user expectations, it's critical to have good OCM (Organizational Change Management)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Teamcenter for global design/engineering and collaboration. We have also extended Teamcenter to manufacturing shop floor.

"Teamcenter Review"

What do you like best?

When I don't have to use it. When it works correctly.

What do you dislike?

Very restrictive. Securities, ownership, and relationship ties. Difficult to work with pro-e/creo. Pick a PLM tool that works with your CAD software. Once something is saved into teamcenter it develops a spiderweb of relationships so if something is incorrect it can be impossible to fix. Very slow performance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You must choose the PLM software that is associated with your CAD tool. Any software from a 2nd or 3rd party will not be as good and not play nice. Keep everything simple. Use OOB functionality. Change all your company policies and procedures to work with the software. Plan on years of testing and development before rolling out in mass.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Releasing engineering data with CAD associated. Benefits have been minimal, if any. Upper management still is asking when they will see ROI.

"Siemens Teamcenter - A PLM tool"

What do you like best?

Teamcenter helps in delivering complex and very large products while maximizing productivity. Teamcenter provides industry specific templates like Aerospace, Automotive etc. for better industrial integration. I like Teamcenter BOM Management, Document and Content Management, Lifecycle Visualization and Change Management modules, it got nice integration with various CAD systems available in the market.

What do you dislike?

I do not like performance bottlenecks, FSC/FCC Cache issues, Database performance is very sensitive to hardware, software and DB configuration requires continuous performance monitoring and turning. Out of the box options are not suitable for production environments, need lots of tweaking.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Need better integration with schematic software, better control with effectivity management, better ERP features like cost management, supplier portal integration apart from fixing performance issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Complete automation of Change Management from the Defect to ECR to ECO to Release stages achieved electronically.

"Release Configuration Control"

What do you like best?

Revision control and ability to modify release process based on project type, especially useful on proposals and business development programs.

What do you dislike?

Not a very usable PDM system for CATIA V5/V6 during the development phase, especially for concurrent users working with contextual design in a complex product structure.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great to use for release of engineering, but not very useful as a WIP enviroment for Pre-PDR development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Configuration control of released engineering that is to be manufactured and eventually certified.

"Teamcenter"

What do you like best?

The data storage and the size of all the files is what makes team center a great software to use. This also helps in saving me lot of time in retrieving the files.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is bit boring and I would like to see some changes in the same.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say , this could move towards ENOVIA in having a global interface rather than sticking towards the teamcenter.

"I am a user, an administrator, and a developer customizing Teamcenter"

What do you like best?

Teamcenter offers an environment which enables integrated CAD and CAE for electrical/mechanical design and simulation (analysis), which makes concurrent engineering efficient. Also Teamcenter offers API's for client and server customization.

What do you dislike?

Installation tool can be more friendly and systematic / network based. It's tough to configure a 4-Tier envirnoment with multiple servers involved. Sometimes, a parameter has to be set once on each server by the installer, which is not reliable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Teamcenter mostly to manage our design and analysis engineering data and build product BOM. We mostly benefit from its capability of integrated CAD and CAE capabilities. In a Teamcenter Part Item Revision, a CAE part can reference a CAD part.
