Eplan becomes Siemens PLM solution partner

Since mid-April, Eplan has been an official Siemens PLM solution partner. The aim of the partnership is to offer an interface between two leading systems: Eplan and Teamcenter. This integration closes a loophole in the PLM process: the configuration data for the Eplan platform can now be processed in Teamcenter. Companies from different industries can benefit from this integrated approach which forms part of a consistent product creation process.
“The new Teamcenter integration opens up lots of doors for us in the growing PLM solutions market,” reports Maximilian Brandl, Chairman-Executive Board, Eplan.
As part of this partnership, which was sealed in mid-April, the companies have developed a sophisticated, future-proof integration of the Eplan platform into the Teamcenter PLM environment. Pleased with the development, Mr Brandl says, “In-line with the partner programme, Eplan and Siemens Industry Software GmbH & Co. KG have together proven their strengths. The integration of the Eplan platform into Teamcenter opens up lots of doors for us in the growing PLM solutions market. Our joint customers can also benefit hugely from this increased consistency.”
Urban August, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Siemens Industry Software GmbH & Co. KG, also sees plenty of benefits for his customers. He explains, “The integration of Eplan into Teamcenter allows our customers to optimise interdisciplinary cooperation and use Teamcenter as a consistent platform for all those involved in the product life cycle.”
Various systems combinedElectrical design is considered an important element of the product creation process. Eplan has developed a universal module to integrate the Eplan platform into PLM systems. The Teamcenter integration unit linked to this module now embeds the Eplan platform solutions seamlessly into the PLM environment. This makes electrical engineering part of the digital product model. This allows companies to achieve comprehensive product lifecycle management across all disciplines.
Increased process reliabilityThe integrated working method increases data consistency not only in the product development process, but also throughout the product lifecycle. Because of the comprehensive and consistent basic data, areas such as maintenance and repairs can be given optimum support, which is reflected directly in reduced times and costs. Transparency is another factor. There is direct access to the complete digital product model, even if the product development process is distributed across different countries. This secures permanent data exchange and, at the end of the day, ensures reliability and quality in the entire product creation process.
“The integration of Eplan into Teamcenter allows our customers to optimise interdisciplinary cooperation and use Teamcenter as a consistent platform for all those involved in the product life cycle,” explains Urban August, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Siemens Industry Software GmbH & Co. KG.
