Siemens PLM Software Delivers Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 for
the iPad, Enriching Individuals’ Teamcenter Interaction with Ability to Capture
and Contribute Knowledge, Browse Product Structures and Initiate Workflow
Processes

PLANO, Texas, September 7, 2011 – 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 the latest release of its Teamcenter Mobility™ mobile device
application (app), with enhancements that significantly enrich the end user’s
ability to participate in the PLM process from the Apple Inc. iPad® portable
digital device. In addition to instantly accessing the existing product knowledge
managed using Teamcenter® software from any WiFi or mobile broadband-available
location, Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 provides individuals with the ability to
capture and contribute additional knowledge, browse product structures and
initiate workflow processes.

“As the global manufacturing industry continues to grow and
evolve, companies need to effectively empower their entire workforce in order
to remain competitive,” said Chuck Grindstaff, president and chief technology
officer, Siemens PLM Software. “The Teamcenter Mobility app puts the power of
Teamcenter into the hands of mobile workers, with new capabilities in the
latest release that will have a significant impact on how those individuals can
interact with PLM data. With Teamcenter Mobility 2.0, users aren’t just
consumers of product information, but they also play an active role in creating
that product information. They can capture data and knowledge, from anywhere,
and more fully participate in their company’s product development process.”

 

 Teamcenter, the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle
management solution, continues to serve as the preferred PLM system for
manufacturing companies throughout the world. Earlier this year, Siemens PLM
Software announced Teamcenter Mobility to address the growing need for these
companies to instantly and securely deliver data managed by Teamcenter to more,
and often unconventional, locations via wireless mobile devices. As the
adoption and usage of mobile solutions continues to accelerate, companies are
requiring richer and broader functionality from their mobile apps.

 

 Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 addresses this need by allowing
mobile users to not only access data in Teamcenter, but to also submit new
product data into Teamcenter, regardless of their location. In addition to
enabling the user to check information into Teamcenter, Teamcenter Mobility
allows a user to initiate workflows. Also, Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 now supports
markup, allowing users to annotate a document or image to communicate specific
issues or instructions.

 

 The Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 enhancements address the needs
of a variety of mobile workers such as executives, shop floor supervisors, or
field maintenance personnel who need to capture, document, and address
product-related issues while away from their standard location. As a result,
decision makers can capture and communicate information when and where it
happens; allowing them to react with even greater speed to the rapidly changing
environments associated with all product lifecycle disciplines such as design,
manufacturing and maintenance.

 

 Teamcenter Mobility 2.0 is available immediately. For more
