Sourcing & Supplier Integration

Integrating supplier management software into your product lifecycle management (PLM) strategy is critical for success in today’s market. Increased complexity and compressed production cycles are driving products that are designed and validated by globally dispersed teams, including suppliers. As your suppliers assume more responsibility for greater portions of your products, you need them to interact with people across your business -- such as purchasing, engineering, compliance, quality, and manufacturing -- to increase productivity and reduce the risk of recalls and non-compliance.
Teamcenter® PLM software provides a comprehensive approach to managing interactions with suppliers. You can coordinate processes and manage information, both internal and external, across all stages of your product lifecycle. You can drive early supplier involvement in product development and provide visibility into accurate supplier information across departments.
