UGS' PLM solutions enable customers to both manage a portfolio of innovative products and drive process innovations in manufacturing, sourcing, marketing, and other areas of enterprise management.
"Through a partnership approach with customers, UGS has integrated key information hubs within a customer's enterprise to provide a single and broader view of product performance across the organization," says Frost & Sullivan research analyst and team leader Kishan Bhat. "The company's solutions are capable of delivering this information to extended enterprise partners so that innovations can occur in a collaborative environment and for the good of the trading network."
UGS' flagship PLM solution, Teamcenter, has an open architecture that allows easy knowledge sharing. The company's revolutionary JT visualization technology enables knowledge to be shared graphically for ease of understanding. Teamcenter has helped leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers, as well as small and medium enterprises deliver their products and services to markets in record time while saving enormously on product introduction costs. UGS has been able to effectively offer solutions to their customers' maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) businesses as well.
UGS delivers value to its customers in each phase of the product lifecycle. NX, its next generation digital product development solution, helps companies transform their product design and engineering processes. The cutting-edge tools in NX enable customers to design and style products as well as simulate and validate product performance. The tooling and machining capabilities of NX ensure that the style and designs translate effectively into the manufactured product.
Another state-of-the-art product from UGS is its powerful mainstream three dimensional computer aided design (CAD) software, Solid Edge. UGS has been able to embed design management capabilities into CAD using the innovative Solid Edge Insight technology and allow designers to move quickly and easily from 2D to 3D design.
"Clearly, UGS has a complete portfolio of solutions to tackle all the challenges of product development in the digital age," notes Bhat. "With the acquisition of Tecnomatix in 2005, UGS has further broadened its solutions portfolio within the digital manufacturing solution space."
The Tecnomatix suite of applications integrates the legacy automation systems in the shop floor with enterprise and extended enterprises on an open manufacturing digital backbone. It enables manufacturers to carry out various tasks such as part manufacturing, resource and assembly planning, plant and line optimization, manufacturing quality, supported by robust manufacturing data management capabilities of Teamcenter.
UGS has consistently delivered value to its customers through its broad and deep range of PLM solutions and helped those customers transform their process of innovation and build stronger businesses.
