Digitalization with TIA Portal: PLM integration of automation engineering
Teamcenter is a PLM platform (product lifecycle management) ensuring the central management of all machine information. This includes mechanical, electrical and other engineering data of a machine. ECAD (electronic computer-aided engineering) and MCAD (mechanic computer-aided engineering) programs can be used for storing your data in Teamcenter. Teamcenter manages all data and compiles them in an overall database of a machine.
Teamcenter is installed on a central server to ensure that all developers of a machine can access the necessary data.
The TIA Portal uses Teamcenter Gateway to connect to the Teamcenter server. It is possible to revise, edit and save TIA Portal projects and global libraries and to link them to PLM processes using Teamcenter workflows. Moreover, with further project information, project versions can be linked to specific library states.
