Since mid-April, Eplan has been an official Siemens PLM Solution Partner. The aim of the partnership is to offer an interface between two market-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.
Solution-provider Eplan is a now an official Siemens PLM Solution Partner. 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. Maximilian Brandl, Chairman of the Executive Board of Eplan, is pleased with the development: “In line with the partner programme, Eplan and Siemens PLM Software 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 of Siemens PLM Software GmbH, also sees plenty of benefits for his customers: “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.”
Electrical design is considered an important element of the product creation process. Eplan has developed a universal module in order 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.
