Siemens' product lifecycle management (PLM) software business unit and CADENAS have extended their partnership to provide students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related fields, with free access to CADENAS' PARTcommunity technology.
Siemens PLM Software's academic partners will be able to find and download standard parts from more than 400 manufacturers using the solution.
"Our academic program is focused on developing a highly trained and heavily recruited PLM workforce," said Bill Boswell, senior director of partner strategy, Siemens PLM Software. "Student engineers and computer scientists who work with real-world data like this can be stronger graduates. In addition, they can save time and increase their productivity using standard parts, just like our customers do every day."
Engineering excellence can only be achieved with practical orientation," said Jurgen Heimbach, CEO of CADENAS. "Students are now able to use the same resources as the industry pros."
