The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has selected Siemens’ Teamcenter software to support the service branch’s digital acquisition and sustainment strategy for critical systems and technologies, the company announced on Tuesday.
“We are incredibly proud to support the Air Force with a toolset 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 and two-time Wash100 Award recipient.
Teamcenter, part of the Xcelerator™ portfolio from Siemens Digital Industries Software, is a modern, open and adaptable product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. By leveraging Xcelerator, the Department of Defense (DOD) as well as the aerospace and defense industry can integrate disparate program data and share product performance details anywhere and at any time.
“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,” Dolph explained.
Siemens continues to work and support the Air Force as it revives and maintains product lifecycle management software applications through a $24.5 million contract through Jan. 2024.
