The Teamcenter manufacturing product suite has been enhanced significantly.
Manufacturing Process Planner (MPP) version 11.4 now includes richer capabilities in the body-in-white (BIW) planning area for automotive customers and in the supplier collaboration solution around alternatives and the use of the briefcase functionality, along with several improvements to the usability and performance of the automotive BIW solution.
Easy Plan (EP) 2.1 has been updated with improved capabilities to the production process planning solution for industrial engineering users. It was also enhanced to support electronic work instruction authoring on the web platform as part of the closed-loop manufacturing (CLM) solution. Electronic Work Instructions (EWI) 3.4 now includes improvements to the online viewer.
There is also a method for generating an offline work package of work instructions so that it can be accessed when there is no connectivity to Teamcenter. Process planning for shipbuilding (Next Generation Planning – NGP) is now available with the NGP 1.4 release. It is targeted at the shipbuilding industry and is based on the 4th Generation Design (4GD) framework.
