Collaborate on Multi-CAD Designs, Without Using MCAD
Teamcenter Rapid Start’s multi-CAD data management for mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) enable you to create, manage, visualize, validate and re-use native design data from a wide selection of MCAD systems, including NX and Solid Edge from Siemens PLM Software, as well as AutoCAD®, CATIA®, Inventor®, Creo® Parametric, and SolidWorks®. Using our JT 3D visualization standard, you can collaborate on designs even if you don’t have access to the MCAD tool that authored them. By establishing a single, secure source of product data, regardless of MCAD authoring tool, you have access to the information you need to make better decisions across your organization.
Multi-domain Collaboration with ECAD Data Management
ECAD management in Teamcenter Rapid Start enables electronic computer-aided design (ECAD) teams to increase productivity by integrating disconnected design flows, managing all of your design, part library, fabrication and assembly data and enabling you to share data across multiple domains. Teamcenter Rapid Start supports ECAD integrations with design tools from Mentor, Cadence, Intercept and Altium. You can also use an integration gateway to integrate tools that you develop internally or procure from other third parties.
Manage Essential Engineering Documentation
The definition of your product doesn’t end with the design. Teamcenter Rapid Start helps you create and manage essential engineering documentation along with the rest of your product and process data. You can easily access Teamcenter from the familiar Microsoft® Office applications you use every day to generate reports and documents.
Automate Product Development and Release Processes
With Teamcenter, you can streamline product development by automating and synchronizing processes. Teamcenter Rapid Start includes preconfigured workflows based on industry best practices to manage change and control product release. You can even take part in review and approval processes directly from within Microsoft Office. Teamcenter Rapid Start also includes preconfigured groups and roles with appropriate access and permissions. Based on these roles, you can streamline your everyday tasks and processes.
