For Powerex, an air compressor and power equipment company, the need for a product data management (PDM) system was clear.
"We are a configure-to-order, engineer-to-order business with 12 engineers developing tens of thousands of products across industries," said Aaron Hunter, NPD Engineering Manager at Powerex. "With that comes lots and lots of designs and revision control issues, and we knew we needed PDM."
Their PDM system of choice is Teamcenter Rapid Start, a preconfigured deployment option for Teamcenter product lifecycle management (PLM) that smaller companies like Powerex can get into production quickly and cost-effectively. Teamcenter Rapid Start delivers all the robust enterprise PDM capabilities of Teamcenter, plus the flexibility to grow into additional Teamcenter PLM capabilities.
