NEW DELHI, India, October 27, 2010 - Siemens PLM Software, a
business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global
provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today
announced Version 5.3 of Teamcenter® Express software with
key usability and desktop integration enhancements that improve collaboration
and productivity in manufacturing organizations. With enhanced support for the
latest versions of Microsoft Office® software and Adobe® Acrobat® software,
Teamcenter Express 5.3 is a mainstream collaborative product data management
(cPDM) solution aimed at increasing the ability to deliver
design-through-manufacturing projects on-time and on-budget. Teamcenter Express
is an easy to implement configuration of Teamcenter® software,
the world’s most widely use PLM system.

“The release of Teamcenter Express 5.3 on the latest
Teamcenter and Microsoft platforms adds significant capabilities to this
comprehensive data management solution,” said Peter A. Bilello, President,
CIMdata. “Extensive user interface enhancements should result in more efficient
completion of common tasks and processes, and expanded integrations with
desktop applications including Microsoft Office 2010 and Adobe Acrobat will
enable more users to utilize their office automation tool of choice to work
directly with a single source of managed product data, leading to improved
collaboration and a reduction in errors in manufacturing.”

Multiple enhancements drive improved productivity 

Teamcenter Express 5.3 can help improve the productivity of
manufacturing organizations with several usability and user interface
enhancements, updated integration with Microsoft Office 2010 and expanded
project scheduling capabilities. These enhancements can help users achieve
faster and more consistent completion of common design-through-manufacturing
tasks performed from users’ desktops across multiple projects.

User interface improvements include a new summary tab layout
with faster access to key data and processes, and a new quick search capability
inside the Teamcenter Express explorer panel. Enhanced Microsoft Office 2010
integration, expanded support for Adobe Acrobat and a new utility to load
multiple files from Windows® software folders enable more widespread access to
a company’s single source of product information. Expanded capabilities in the
embedded Structure Manager module enable more comprehensive and efficient
management of product structures including the ability to selectively apply and
reject recommended changes to a bill of materials.

Teamcenter Express 5.3 includes additional project
scheduling capabilities that enable easier access for reviewing project status
through a new web client, expanded project planning capabilities including
finish date scheduling and critical path analysis, and timesheet reporting and
work breakdown structures for improved resource tracking.

“Our original deployment of Teamcenter Express was fast,
smooth and impactful,” says Kim Guk Hyeon, general manager at KC Samyang Water
Systems. “In very little time, we were 100 percent operational managing our
customers’ requests. In fact, since we began using Siemens PLM Software
solutions, we have experienced an increase in design turnaround (speed) of more
than 20 percent, an improvement in product quality of greater than 25 percent
and a gain in customer satisfaction of more than 20 percent. Teamcenter Express
has been a significant contributor to this success.”

Support for latest Teamcenter and Microsoft standards

Teamcenter Express 5.3 is a configuration of Teamcenter 8.3.It is
fully scalable to this release and takes advantage of many of its new features.
Teamcenter Express 5.3 is also certified for Microsoft Windows Server® 2008 and
Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 clients and Microsoft Office 2010. By supporting the
latest Microsoft and Teamcenter standards, Teamcenter Express provides faster
implementation by leveraging the users’ existing IT infrastructure, along with
improved performance and low total cost of ownership.

Teamcenter Express V5.3 is expected to be available in
December. For more information please visit www.siemens.com/plm/teamcenterexpress.
