Teamcenter Integration for Solid Edge

Capture, manage and share your Solid Edge data to improve the efficiency and integrity of your product development process

The Teamcenter® Integration for Solid Edge enables you to improve the quality of your product development process by enhancing your Solid Edge CAD data management and to create a single design data management environment for mechanical, electronic, software and simulation tools and data. The integration provides access to a full range of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) capabilities to further optimize your design-through-manufacturing processes.

Fast Task Completion

The Teamcenter Integration for Solid Edge provides transparent connectivity between Solid Edge and Teamcenter. Solid Edge dialogs that handle file operations directly browse the Teamcenter vault and present filtered lists and graphical previews of Solid Edge documents. Solid Edge users can also take advantage of Teamcenter’s innovative Active Workspace interface that provides a streamlined product lifecycle management (PLM) user experience.

Concept Modeling

Concept Modeling in enables rapid creation and evaluation of multiple design scenarios with Teamcenter as the backbone. Explore design ideas without committing the files to Teamcenter. This allows for the creation or addition of new parts to assemblies without creating a part number and then publishing or deleting a design when it’s approved or rejected.

Integrated Revision Management

New revisions of Solid Edge parts, assemblies and drawings are automatically created and tracked. Existing product structures can be cloned and edited using the Structure Manager environment, which enables rapid configuration of new assemblies outside of the Solid Edge environment. Electronic workflows are available to manage engineering change and release to manufacturing processes.

Higher Design Re-use to Reduce Costs

Product development and manufacturing costs and timescales can be significantly reduced by improving reuse of existing design data. Shape search capability enables the reuse of existing parts in new designs. Searches can be easily configured, saved and run by utilizing retrieved existing components. Product structures can also be cloned and edited using the Structure Editor, which enables rapid configuration of new assemblies.

Managed Legacy CAD Data

In addition to managing Solid Edge documents, Teamcenter manages related technical data captured in many different electronic formats. The “Add to Teamcenter” utility assembly speeds the import of legacy data including 2D CAD drawings, which enables this valuable data to be integrated into your product development process.

Improved Collaboration

Teamcenter has many capabilities that enable you to improve collaboration within your design team, with other departments and with external suppliers and customers. For example, manufacturing can use Teamcenter to view 2D drawings, 3D CAD models and bills-of-materials ensuring they have the information they need to manufacture the correct parts to the right specifications.

Growth Path to Comprehensive PLM

Solid Edge users have an assured growth path by choosing Teamcenter, the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle management system. Teamcenter Rapid Start, a preconfigured deployment of Teamcenter, includes industry best practices for product development and minimizes implementation time and costs. You also have full access to all Teamcenter portfolio Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) capabilities.

Using Teamcenter with Solid Edge allows us to ensure secure access to the latest validated information from anywhere. If we need the latest document from our team in another time zone, even if they’re asleep, it’s available in Teamcenter, and we can be sure we’re getting the right version, every time.
