Siemens PLM Software announced the latest release of its Teamcenter Mobility mobile app. The new release is intended to enhance the end user’s ability to participate in the product lifecycle management (PLM) process using an Apple iPad. In addition to access to the existing product knowledge managed using Teamcenter software from any Wi-Fi or mobile broadband-available location, Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 provides individuals with the ability to capture and contribute additional knowledge, browse product structures and initiate workflow processes.
Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 is intended to addresses the need of mobile users to not only access data in Teamcenter, but to also submit new product data into Teamcenter, regardless of their location. Also, Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 now supports markup, allowing users to annotate a document or image to communicate specific issues or instructions.
The Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 release hopes to address the needs of a variety of mobile workers such as executives, shop floor supervisors, or field maintenance personnel who need to capture, document, and address product-related issues while away from their standard location. As a result, decision makers can capture and communicate information when and where it happens; allowing them to react to rapidly changing environments associated with all product lifecycle disciplines such as design, manufacturing and maintenance.
