siemens plm world 2012  Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed originally by ShapeData and was used by SolidWorks well before Dassault

Best-of-Breed Versus Complete CAD-PLM Suites: The Debate Rages On


The PLM world is currently witness to fervent debate on the most appropriate type of PLM/CAD software. Best-of-breed solutions offer the needed capabilities and hence integrate the necessary software modules as per the customer’s needs, whereas all-in-one CAD/PLM suites attempt a “one size fits all” approach. In his report, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic provides his view on the intricacies of these two approaches.

Embraer to Overhaul Its PLM Platform with PTC Windchill


In a well-established upper-range product lifecycle management (PLM) market total platform replacements are a rare occurrence. Brazil-based Embraer, one of the world’s largest aircraft manufacturers, has recently selected PTC’s Windchill PLM technology solutions to “help bring new innovative aircraft to market faster, more efficiently, and with the highest levels of quality.” With the switch from

While Windchill might give a better appearance of an integrated solution with its configuration capabilities, it is still complex and costly to configure. Teamcenter, ENOVIA, and Windchill are all designed more with a toolset/infrastructure in mind than a native applications-oriented design. The bottom line is that users can do almost anything they want with their upper-range PLM platform, but the TCO and Read More
