Leica Geosystems Selects Siemens NX, Teamcenter
PLANO, TX, USA, Aug 17, 2017 – Leica Geosystems, a world leader in measurement technology, has selected the Teamcenter portfolio from Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business to accelerate its digital enterprise transformation. By replacing its previous system with Teamcenter, the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle management software, Leica Geosystems will have a holistic view of the product development process, from concept to execution, and can increase overall operational excellence. Combining the power of Teamcenter with NX software, Siemens’ flagship solution for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE), the geospatial industry leader will have the tools to not only help design new products, but also perfect its production and quality control processes. Implementing a digital strategy with Teamcenter and NX should help Leica Geosystems simplify, standardize and automate processes, which could lead to future innovations and competitive advantages.
“Leica Geosystems is known for creating complete solutions for measurement professionals around the globe, and we are confident that Teamcenter will provide a complete solution for our product lifecycle management needs,” said Alexander Perle, head of Global IT ServiceDesk & Client Management, CAD&PLM, for Leica Geosystems. “Implementing a digital strategy with software from Siemens should help increase production efficiencies and ensure informed decision making in the future.”
Leica Geosystems is known for innovative product and solution development for professionals in a diverse mix of industries, such as surveying and engineering, building and heavy construction, safety and security, and power and plant. As the industry continues to evolve, companies such as Leica Geosystems need to ensure close cooperation between mechanical systems, electronics and software in their product development processes. Teamcenter should enable Leica Geosystems to improve efficiencies and increase its productivity by establishing a global standard for its product and production management system, unifying the systems infrastructure. With this crucial framework in place, Leica Geosystems can establish the flexibility to stay ahead of the rapid product development cycle, and move to production runs with confidence, knowing that they have been tested in advance. Optimizing these processes is just one step innovative companies such as Leica Geosystems can take to prepare for Industry 4.0.
“Siemens is committed to helping Leica Geosystems, and other companies throughout the world, implement the digitalization and automation of their entire production process,” said Hermann Kaineder, Country Manager Austria & Switzerland, Siemens PLM Software. “We look forward to supporting Leica Geosystems and helping the organization increase efficiencies and decision making to continue innovating in their own business.”
