Siemens announced the U.S. Air Force has selected Teamcenter software as the foundational system of record to support its digital acquisition and sustainment strategy for critical systems and technologies across the service. The selection of Teamcenter as the Air Force enterprise standard follows a 2019 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract for $24.6 million to Siemens for licensing, maintenance and support.
Teamcenter, part of the Xcelerator portfolio from Siemens Digital Industries Software, is a modern, open and adaptable product lifecycle management (PLM) solution that can help connect people and processes across functional silos by providing a digital thread for innovation.By leveraging Xcelerator, Siemens’ comprehensive, integrated portfolio of software, services and application development platform, the Department of Defense and the aerospace and defense industry have the ability to integrate disparate repositories of program data and effectively share product performance details at any time, from any location.
“We are incredibly proud to support the Air Force with a tool set that supports their digital journey and fundamentally enhances the way they can field capability with greater speed and agility,” said Tina Dolph, president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies. “By providing the Air Force and other defense agencies with a robust enterprise PLM solution, time-sensitive and actionable data can be accessed across the earliest phases of a system lifecycle, resulting in lower operational costs, fewer down times, and overall improved readiness
