Teamcenter Quality Management with CAPA
Corrective and Preventive Actions Ensure Product Quality
In order to stay competitive and distinguish yourself in the marketplace, your company must reduce product and operating costs while improving product quality. Every day you must make trade-off decisions between cost, time and the need to meet design intent. Making the wrong decisions can have a devastating impact on many aspects of your business.
Despite the priority you give to product quality, your quality management teams may still have difficulty getting the information they need. Since you’re already using product lifecycle management (PLM) to streamline product data and processes, why not include your quality teams within the same system you use to manage your product lifecycle?

Teamcenter Sustainability and Environmental Compliance
Go Green with a Framework for Sustainability and Design for Environment Initiatives
View Video
To successfully develop environmentally friendly products, companies must implement a sustainability framework. Global OEMs and their supply chains not only need to choose materials that are compliant with regulations, but they also need to move beyond basic compliance with a sustainability strategy that phases out or replaces current components and materials with new “green” ones. Noncompliance costs can range from fines to more severe penalties, including being prevented from selling your products in key markets. Lack of visibility to compliance information can also lead to increased inventory costs and excessive product redesign costs.
Instead of struggling to keep-up with ever-changing, country-specific regulations such as RoHS, or waiting for future mandates such as EuP (energy-using products) to impact your business, why not take a pro-active approach and use Teamcenter to establish a sustainability framework for your green product initiatives?

Teamcenter Delivers Sustainability and Environmental Compliance
Teamcenter can help you establish a framework for sustainability and design for environment (DfE) initiatives with a substance compliance solution to support the development of green, environmentally friendly products. Teamcenter allows you to quickly understand how well your product complies with specific regional environmental regulations worldwide.
Teamcenter manages material and substance information to provide traceability and aggregation of materials and substances across a product bill of materials (BOM), allowing you to control the material makeup of your products to limit the use of hazardous substances. You can also determine the effect of a substance regulation on a product early in the lifecycle, and understand its impact on your bottom line. Teamcenter reduces the costs associated with collecting and managing the vast amount of environmental data required to establish and document the compliance of complex products, down to the substance level. You can use Teamcenter as the single source of approved materials for your company, so you can leverage the materials throughout the Teamcenter portfolio of PLM applications.
Teamcenter uses the compliance process manager (CPM) tool from PE INTERNATIONAL, the global market leader in strategic consultancy, software solutions and extensive services in the field of sustainability. You can check a BOM for specific substances in accordance with various environmental compliance regulations. Pre-configured rule sets make it easy to understand and

keep up with changes in global regulations such as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and Conflict Minerals. A sustainability framework that supports the effective management of product requirements is critical to enabling sustainable product design. Teamcenter traces requirements from the product design to the manufacturing process, and then on to the product in-service. Requirements management ensures that your program and product targets are set correctly up-front. You can look ahead in the product lifecycle and include environmental considerations for each phase, establishing the sustainability of the product and process from the start. With requirements traceability, you can track those requirements throughout the process to ensure that critical deliverables are met. Teamcenter enables data exchanges with third-party material sources (such MatML or IMDS data) and supplier warehouses (such as BOMcheck) to align your Teamcenter-based sustainability strategy with existing tools and processes.

Supplier Integration
Extending PLM to the Supply Chain
Due to increasing complexity and compressed production cycles, more products today are being digitally designed and validated by globally dispersed teams. At the same time, your suppliers are assuming more responsibility for greater portions of products, which requires them to interact with multiple disciplines in your company (purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing, etc.).
Early supplier involvement in PLM processes, good supplier information visibility, efficient sourcing processes, and better coordination between product development teams will have a positive impact on your company’s bottom-line. With a comprehensive approach to managing interactions with suppliers, your company can reduce risk, improve time-to-market and lower costs.
The ability to effectively collect and manage supplier information results in lower purchased costs and risks due to factors such as non-compliance, missed deliveries, etc. By understanding how much you spend on outside goods and services, you can increase your negotiation power and reduce the risk of non-compliance.
