BAE Systems signs submarine PLM contract with Siemens

Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, has announced that the submarine manufacturing division of BAE Systems signed a contract in March of this year to standardise on Teamcenter software for the development of its next-generation submarine.

According to Siemens, this commitment will enable BAE Systems to drive productivity improvements, establish common processes and enhance global collaboration across the lifecycle of this important new programme.

PLM system Teamcenter will serve as the information backbone of BAE Systems’ product development process, managing all of the information generated and needed to design, build, commission and support a nuclear submarine.

The Teamcenter deployment supports a business strategy vision that seeks to ensure that BAE Systems can reliably, predictably and affordably deliver submarines to the Royal Navy.
