EDS and Siemens PLM Software Deliver Best-in-Class Defense Logistics Solution

New Defense Logistics Solution Combines EDS Services with Siemens Teamcenter Software to Rapidly, Efficiently and Securely Support Performance-based Logistics Contracts Globally

PLANO, Texas and FARNBOROUGH, England, July 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EDS, a leading global technology services company and Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that the two companies have joined to deliver a best-in-class Defense Logistics Solution that leverages EDS' extensive aerospace and defense (A&D) ( http://www.eds.com/industries/aerospace/) logistics experience and internationally known IT infrastructure services, along with Siemens PLM Software's industry-leading Teamcenter(R) software portfolio.

This unique Defense Logistics Solution enables aerospace and defense OEMs, suppliers and defense services/agencies to significantly reduce the time, risk and expense associated with fulfilling defense logistics and performance-based logistics (PBL) contracts. Anticipated benefits include improved product quality, by following product configurations into the service stage of the product lifecycle, tracking product/part performance and capturing feedback to improve next-generation products; improving service by leveraging the solution's rules and roles to protect and deliver the most current operational information available; and gaining global support, with the two companies' presence in more than 60 countries around the world.

"As the A&D manufacturer's business ally, EDS brings extensive experience and service expertise in the implementation and management of defense logistics and MRO business activities," said Joan Davies, EDS segment leader of aerospace and defense. "Together with Siemens PLM Software, we can deliver a best-in-class solution for managing supply chains, support processes, assets and metrics associated with PBL programs, which can be rapidly deployed and operational, while maintaining the flexibility to adjust to varying customer requirements."

EDS will deliver the logistics and A&D experience, local presence and IT solutions needed to integrate the people, systems and processes required to rapidly deliver a strategically effective solution for PBL programs.

The solution is based on Siemens PLM Software's comprehensive Teamcenter software portfolio for PLM including maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). The new offering is tailored to the needs of organizations that support and service complex, long-lifecycle products such as aircraft, weapon systems, ships and power plants.

"Today's announcement represents a major step forward for our defense industry customers who need to expeditiously fulfill PBL contracts and drive profitability," said Steve Bashada, vice president of Teamcenter Applications, Siemens PLM Software. "Together with EDS we have created a flexible turnkey offering that will not only streamline the planning and deployment of the IT infrastructure and security requirements associated with PBL contracts, but also greatly simplify their administration. As the leading global supplier of PLM software to the aerospace and defense industry, we are proud to deliver this latest example of our continued industry support and to extend our commitment to deliver full lifecycle PLM from requirements to retirement."

PBL contracts establish a series of performance metrics that manufacturers, systems integrators and sustainment enterprises are measured against. In order to ensure success and maximize profits, defense contractors need to minimize the time necessary to become operational on any given PBL contract while ensuring they can track, measure and manage their progress with respect to the PBL metrics. To accomplish this, the Defense Logistics Solution combines recently announced service data management and logistics records management capabilities in the Teamcenter solution for MRO, with tailored EDS services and global capabilities.

Visitors to the Farnborough International Airshow will find EDS in the Exhibitor's Club Restaurant & Bar, Hall 1A, and Siemens PLM Software in Hall 4, Booth E17.
