Roxtec choose Teamcenter PLM for its many capabilities, excellent performance and global support
In 2013, Roxtec decided to replace their existing PDM solution with Teamcenter. Roxtec had identified the need for a larger and more modern system in order to continue their success on the global market. With Teamcenter from Siemens PLM Software, Roxtec gained a high-performance, scalable PLM platform that enables future expansion. Roxtec’s CAD designers around the world now have a reliable system that also supports 3D data from third party vendors.
In May 2013, NEXTAGE performed a Proof of Concept for Roxtec’s business in China. For Roxtec, who had been suffering from low prestanda with their former system, this successful POC was one of the reasons for choosing Teamcenter.
The project of implementing Teamcenter started in September 2013 and was finished in November 2014. NEXTAGE managed the software implementation project, and migrated the data from the old system. NEXTAGE also supported Roxtec with process- and methodology development and were present when Roxtec’s project team rolled out Teamcenter in the entire organisation. The deployment and transition ran smoothly and was completed within time and budget.
NEXTAGE continue to work closely with Roxtec, adding knowledge and support as a trusted advisor.
The solution Roxtec has is Teamcenter 10.1 with integrations for Autodesk Inventor and AutoCAD for CAD data management. Furthermore they have integrations with MS Office for Document Management, BOM Management and process support within Teamcenter for release/approval workflows, as well as for full Change Management (ECR/ECN) during the product lifecycle.
The implementation of Teamcenter affects several parts of their business, such as:
- Research and development
- Product Management
- Test- and certification Management
Roxtec uses an article (product) centric data model, where all relevant information is linked to the article depending on information type. The model was chosen and implemented after careful assessment of the requirements and business processes of Roxtec.
One great value Roxtec sees with the solution, is the ability to grow with Teamcenter as a PLM platform over time. Business areas and functions that are under discussion for implementation in the future are::
- More global presence with more sites
- Manufacturing (Manufacturing process, planning and execution)
- Requirement Management
- Content Management (for technical documentation)
In Teamcenter we now have a scalable PLM system that enhances collaboration in our global business, and supports future development", says Henrik Jakhammer, global PLM manager at Roxtec International. “We are pleased with our choice, and can see our business grow with the solution”, he continues.
