Requirements Management

Capture and communicate requirements to guide the right decisions to deliver the right products

Teamcenter capabilities for requirements management ensure the delivery of products that reflect the voice of your customer. By empowering all individuals and functional teams throughout the lifecycle with visibility to customer requirements and the knowledge behind them, you can deliver the right products to the right markets while achieving revenue and performance targets.

Studies repeatedly show that no development process will result in a successful product offering unless the products you deliver are rigorously aligned and continually verified against accurate marketplace requirements and customer expectations. Requirements management provides the guidance your teams need to develop and deliver the right products.

Product requirements come from a variety of dynamic sources in the form of governmental regulations, industry standards, company mandates, market needs, contractual commitments and consumer expectations. Not only do you need to keep up with the ever-changing requirements from these sources, but you also need to update and share your product requirements within your product development and manufacturing teams, as well as your supply chain, in order to keep your products compliant.

The Teamcenter requirements management solution can help you capture and communicate requirements from every source to product decision-makers. By integrating requirements management with product lifecycle management (PLM), requirements are elevated from isolated, standalone spreadsheets and documents to be visible to everyone who participates in the product lifecycle. With the Teamcenter requirements management solution, you can accurately trace, continuously verify and reliably maintain requirements information across your organization. Whether you work in product development, manufacturing or the supply chain, you can refer to requirements to make the right decisions to deliver the right products.


Easily Capture, Share and Maintain Requirements

With the Teamcenter requirements management solution, you can establish a single, secure source of requirements. You can create, edit, review and approve requirements from your computer or mobile device using familiar Microsoft Office® applications like Word and Excel®. You can import and exchange requirements documents with other tools and standard formats. Once requirements are captured in Teamcenter, you can easily search, access and maintain them in the same PLM system you use to manage the rest of your product information. Requirements are easy to find, share and re-use across multiple products or projects.


Connect Requirements Management with Project Plans

If your product or contractual requirements include schedule and cost targets, you can use the Teamcenter requirements management solution to connect requirements to projects, tasks and resources. You can monitor your requirements and program constraints to make the best design decisions or delivery commitments. With this level of requirements traceability, you have better visibility into project status, risks and the potential impact of change.


Continuously Verify Requirements and Establish Accountability

When requirements are managed in isolated, standalone spreadsheets and documents that only a few people can see, the requirements are difficult to maintain as the product changes throughout the lifecycle. It is also difficult to make decisions without visibility into requirements. With the Teamcenter requirements management solution, you can allocate requirements to domains or functions, so they are visible to decision-makers in development, test, manufacturing, maintenance and service teams. Everyone can see their role in the development process, make informed decisions to meet product requirements, and plan their work accordingly. You can create a sense of accountability for requirements across your organization, and continuously verify compliance with requirements throughout the product lifecycle.


Mitigate the Risk of Change


The Teamcenter requirements management solution provides you with visibility into the impact of change, so that you can make the necessary decisions needed to mitigate the risk of product changes that conflict with requirements. Whether you work in engineering, manufacturing, sourcing or service, when your requirements are connected with the rest of your product information in Teamcenter, you can intelligently assess and communicate the impact of a change across the whole product. You can investigate the change from a graphical display of items and all their relationships across the product lifecycle. When a change is made, you can use requirements verification tools to quickly identify if any requirements are no longer being met.

Service Lifecycle Management (SLM)

Increase service revenue and profit with service knowledge management solutions based on enterprise asset management


Teamcenter unifies your service lifecycle management strategy with your PLM vision by providing a single source of service and product knowledge for your logistics, maintenance and engineering communities. A common SLM-PLM environment helps you drive profitable service growth, leaner service operations and improved asset performance.

A service lifecycle management (SLM) strategy can help your company deliver the greatest product value to your customers while building-up service revenue and profit. With Teamcenter SLM solutions, the service and support phase of the product lifecycle is included in your overall product lifecycle management (PLM) vision.

For manufacturing companies, Teamcenter unifies SLM with PLM to support bi-directional collaboration between product engineering and service operations. Your service teams can capitalize on the re-use of product knowledge from engineering and manufacturing to improve service planning and execution. In return, service teams can provide feedback to engineering to improve product designs for serviceability and reliability.

For service companies, Teamcenter provides enterprise asset management and service lifecycle management solutions, so service disciplines can share a common understanding of support requirements. Service teams can communicate and coordinate operational activities for greater compliance, faster service, and lower costs.


Maximize Service Knowledge Management and Value


With Teamcenter as the core of your SLM strategy, you have one source of service knowledge management. You can perform service activities with a full understanding of physical product (asset) configurations, status and service history. You can order the correct parts, ensure that the proper training is done, and access all the appropriate information necessary to manage service operations.


Create Effective Service Plans


Service plans are the key to profitable service operations. Teamcenter provides you with the fundamentals to author and publish service documentation as the source of work scope definition. You can drive service operations by providing all the detailed information that teams need to track and understand asset health, such as service requirements, task-by-task procedures, necessary resources and utilization characteristics. Your technicians have a complete understanding of service needs from Teamcenter, so they are prepared to perform reactive, proactive and upgrade service activities.


Optimize Service Work with Schedule Visibility


With the detailed service plans in Teamcenter, you can schedule service activities with a complete understanding of the work scope, in order to meet customer expectations for product availability and reliability. Work orders generated from service plans are used to create service schedules. It is the visibility into the schedule and resources provided by Teamcenter that allows you to optimize service events and ensure that the right resources (parts, qualified people and tools) are reserved for the work.


Empower Service Technicians with Work Instructions


Service technicians are a limited resource. When you provide them with complete, intelligent work packages, technicians can execute service work efficiently, accurately and compliantly. With Teamcenter, you can deliver service work instructions, safety/hazard notes, and service procedures (text, 2D/3D and animations). You can also include asset configurations and data collection requirements. Technicians can enter data, observations or discrepancies, and digitally signoff on work, which automatically updates the service schedule.

Manufacturing Process Management

Teamcenter, combined with Tecnomatix, gives you a single, scalable and secure source of manufacturing data that supports lifecycle processes from engineering through production. With a fully managed, single source of knowledge for products, processes, resources and plants, you can increase manufacturing’s influence on product innovation to drastically improve profitability, time-to-market and quality.


Supplier Integration

Collaborate with your global supply chain to increase productivity and reduce risk


Teamcenter offers supplier integration solutions that allow you to more effectively engage suppliers, engineering and procurement in the sourcing and supplier management process.

Supplier integration is critical to success in today’s market. Increased complexity and compressed production cycles are driving products that are designed and validated by globally dispersed teams, including suppliers. As your suppliers assume more responsibility for greater portions of your products, you need them to interact with people across your business, such as purchasing, engineering, compliance, quality, and manufacturing, to increase productivity and reduce the risk of recalls and non-compliance.

Teamcenter supplier integration capabilities – such as a supplier collaboration portal, vendor management, and design data exchange – provide a comprehensive approach to managing interactions with suppliers. You can coordinate processes and manage information, both internal and external, across all stages of your product lifecycle. You can drive early supplier involvement in product development and provide visibility into accurate supplier information across departments. Supplier information can be managed in context with the product structure to provide holistic views of your product. You can make better decisions about purchased components and have access to reliable supplier analytics.


Optimized Supplier Collaboration throughout the Supply Chain


With Teamcenter supplier collaboration, you can extend your product lifecycle management (PLM) processes and data to your non-Teamcenter suppliers efficiently through real process integration. You can collaborate with your suppliers through interactions including design data exchange, direct materials sourcing and supplier program management, all using the same PLM supplier collaboration foundation. Collaborating with your extended supplier teams is made easy with an intuitive supplier portal to receive requests and submit responses, and a cloud-ready framework for ease of deployment.


Efficient and Secure Design Data Exchange


Supplier collaboration for design data exchange with your non-Teamcenter suppliers provides you with an efficient, secure, and scalable supplier integration solution for exchanging product data. As a “sponsor” in Teamcenter, you can create packages of information to share with your suppliers (including CAD designs, specifications, JT files, etc.), and then initiate an exchange process with them. Your suppliers use a secure web portal to receive requests and exchange packages from you, and they can use the same portal to upload and submit responses back to you. The Teamcenter data share manager, accessed through the portal, simplifies the upload and download of large files. The briefcase browser enables suppliers to browse through compressed CAD files and open the files in their native CAD systems, where the CAD files can be modified and saved back to the briefcase browser. Traceability, audit and version control enable efficient, effective and transparent process execution, ensuring that you and your suppliers are working with the right data.


Decrease Costs and Cycle Times with Direct Materials Sourcing


Direct materials sourcing provides a platform for enabling efficient early bidding processes featuring RFx (request for information, proposal or quotation) template authoring, controlled processes for event management, automatic tracking and communication, detailed cost breakdowns, bid analysis and award nominations, etc. Authorized bidders can receive and access bid requests bundled together with part specifications, reference data and instructions using a secure supplier portal. Bidders can then use the supplier portal to submit their responses back to you in Teamcenter. With direct materials sourcing in Teamcenter, you can understand cost drivers early in the product lifecycle and understand supply chain impact before changes are approved.


Extend PLM Projects with Supplier Program Management


With supplier program management, you can plan and execute supplier projects within the context of an overall program. This provides visibility into and traceability of supplier deliverables, to reduce your cycle times and shorten time-to-market. You can initiate data sharing from Teamcenter task workflows and assign tasks to suppliers who are not internal Teamcenter users. Your suppliers receive notification of task requests through a secure supplier portal, which include instructions and reference data, and they can respond to the requests by uploading and submitting their deliverables. After approval, incoming deliverables from suppliers can then be aggregated to the product definition in Teamcenter.
