Siemens corporate puts faith in own PLM software

Siemens CIO Global Forum, the governing body at Siemens, has approved the 3D JT data format for all long-term product data retention globally.

It’s the first Siemens-wide standardisation on Siemens PLM Software technology since the firm’s acquisition of UGS last May, and chairman and CEO Tony Affuso says it’s the result of a comprehensive evaluation against competitive alternatives.

“While Siemens has clearly committed to PLM industry leadership with our solutions, we understand that its internal needs will always be driven by the Siemens business strategy. So, while the JT evaluation took place well before our acquisition, we are particularly gratified by this decision, because it serves as the latest validation of the superiority of our JT technology,” says Affuso.

“Long-term data retention is of vital importance to Siemens, so we needed to ensure the common format we selected was a widely adopted, open and published standard that could precisely represent the extensive range of our product geometry and specifications, yet still employ a reasonably small file size for speed and efficiency,” comments Reinhold Achatz, head of Siemens Corporate Research and Technologies.

“After several years of experience with all of the primary 3D formats, we conducted a thorough evaluation of each one based on a wide variety of critical criteria. JT emerged as the clear choice, due in part to its superior versatility and its de facto standard status in key industries we serve. JT’s robust and flexible capabilities can address the broadest spectrum of needs for not only Siemens but also for any manufacturing organisation.”
