Siemens PLM Software's Teamcenter solution for MRO offers a new approach to the support and service phase of the product lifecycle: "Configuration-driven MRO". Unlike traditional offerings for MRO, which focus primarily on enterprise resource planning (ERP) transactional data, Configuration-driven MRO puts the product at the center of the MRO function - bridging the gap between the Logistics, Maintenance and Engineering communities, providing service teams with insight to what a product's configuration should be and what maintenance operations, resources and materials are necessary to maintain its effective operation.
Teamcenter allows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to maximize the visibility of the operational side of the product lifecycle and owners/operators to optimize the value of their operational assets.
Providing required and on-demand visibility into this data, analyzing it to monitor performance and to identify areas of improvements is not only critical but also absolutely essential. Without such dynamic capability, the customers are not able to leverage their investments in the PLM solution to its fullest extent.
eQube-BI's revolutionary architecture accesses Teamcenter Engineering's object model via its native APIs. It leverages a customer's highly customized classes, relations, and attributes AS-IS. In addition, it leverages the customer specific contexts and security model AS-IS!
Other core capabilities of eQube allows for highly configurable reports / analytics templates to be developed in a matter of hours. The end users then can use these templates for ad-hoc reporting. eQube-BI's powerful in-built Scheduler allows privileged users to schedule these templates to be run at any combinations of time parameters, such as daily, weekly (on one or more days of the week), monthly by date or by specific day etc.
