EPLAN is now an official Siemens PLM Solution Partner. According to the company, the aim of the partnership is to offer an interface between the EPLAN and Teamcenter solutions, allowing the configuration data for the EPLAN Platform to be processed in Teamcenter.
"The new Teamcenter integration opens up lots of doors for us in the growing PLM solutions market," said Maximilian Brandl, EPLAN chairman. "In line with the partner program, EPLAN and Siemens Industry 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 greatly from this increased consistency."
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. According to the company, this makes electrical engineering part of the digital product model and allows companies to achieve comprehensive product lifecycle management across all disciplines.
"The integration of EPLAN into Teamcenter allows our customers to optimize interdisciplinary cooperation and use Teamcenter as a consistent platform for all those involved in the product life cycle," said Urban August, senior vice president and managing director of Siemens Industry Software.
