PLM ALM Integration using Teamcenter Linked Data Framework
By Jatish Mathew – Reports from the field indicate that the power window system in a particular car model has a defect. The anti-pinch feature does not work all the time. Customer service files a high priority incident report.
Representatives from different engineering teams meet and try to find the root cause of the problem.
The problem may be due to hardware failure such as a stuck button, it can be in the embedded software, or it can be a combination of hardware-software. Each team analyzes the problem using their tools and processes but when these teams need to coordinate what do they do?
The biggest worry for engineers, when they work with different teams, is that the practices, processes, and tools they use are diverse. How do they ensure that teams effectively collaborate without losing the processes and systems that work well for them?
In this post, we will explore how hardware (PLM domain) and software (ALM domain) teams work together to solve the power window problem. The automotive company in our example uses Linked Data Framework (Customer Only Access) to integrate and collaborate across domains. It is an integration framework to integrate different enterprise information systems such as Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) systems.
PLM ALM integration using Linked Data Framework helps with the following business problems:
- How do you implement a process such as change management across different domains such as PLM and ALM?
- How do you avoid creating new applications, and avoid user training?
- How do you enable ALM users to access PLM data without learning PLM concepts or new tools?
