SIEMENS – The platform release of Teamcenter 10 is the next major milestone in our new method of delivering apps independently of the big platform releases. While Teamcenter 10 is a major platform release, the new apps are no longer dependent on a specific version of the larger Teamcenter platform. So you can implement them quickly for a faster return on your PLM investment.
See the complete list of Teamcenter 10 enhancements across the portfolio. Visit the What’s New in Teamcenter web page, or download the What’s New in Teamcenter fact sheet (pdf).

By Kevin Prendeville – During the past several years the tables have turned on a number of large high-tech companies as several market leaders have become followers, and several followers have become market leaders. The dramatic change has pivoted on the ability of these market followers to leverage investments in product development processes to deliver more innovative and impactful products than the leaders. These processes, known as Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), extend from idea generation, through product market launch, to product retirement.
Today’s business environment requires that top management views PLM as a strategic corporate asset, a cross-functional, enterprise-wide business discipline that augments innovation, helps drive significant revenue growth, and reduces costs of activities ranging from engineering rework to regulatory compliance. more> http://tinyurl.com/cqrmfjm

By Beth Stackpole – In the 2000s, CAD was in a rut. Sure, there were regular updates with lots of new power features, but the advances did little to attract or inspire new users beyond the traditional base of CAD jockeys. Other emerging design platforms like Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and new Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) tools grabbed the spotlight.
Lately, CAD has made a resurgence. Thanks to an array of new 3D modeling advances and, in some cases, a complete rethinking of how CAD functionality is delivered, we’re starting to see an exciting generation of new platforms. more> http://tinyurl.com/899fz7z

By David Prawel – We’ve been hearing about PLM for a long time now — probably at least a decade. But I’m only recently really starting to hear about people really benefiting from PLM. Does it really take that long for something that sounds so good to work its way into real business value?
Yes. I figure it this way:
It takes at least a few years for management to recognize there is a problem with the way things are done and that maybe there’s a better way. Management generally ignores anything that involves new technology for at least a few years because they can’t count it and because they think engineering/design people always want the latest technology simply because it’s cool. more> http://is.gd/zCxqyg
