Materials Data Management and PLM: Your Key to Product Innovation

by Siemens PLM Software, thinkstep, BSH and Siemens Healthineers (November 2016)

In this webinar, Siemens PLM Software and thinkstep come together with Teamcenter customers BSH and Siemens Healthineers to highlight the benefits of integrating materials data management and PLM using Teamcenter.

BSH is a market leader for home appliances with annual sales revenue of 13 billion Euros. Christine Krämer, Head of Corporate IT Laboratories and Simulation explains why Teamcenter Integrated Materials Management (IMM) is the ideal platform to standardize material processes across the enterprise and across business functions, to enable steering, transparency and information exchange for all technical material aspects.

Siemens Healthineers is a global healthcare company with annual sales revenue of 14 billion Euros. Thomas Ohrndorf, Head of Components and Vacuum Technology highlights the business benefits of IMM. “With a single source for material data, we now spend less time searching for the right materials. Our materials are now directly accessible from the design and simulation tools and easy to find. We can ensure to have the same, reliable material information in all steps of the PLM process and respect compliance and resource efficiency already in the MCAD / ECAD environment. The advantages are so obvious that it’s nearly absurd to spell them out.”
