Siemens PLM Software has announced that SCM Group, a manufacturer of woodworking machinery and systems, has selected Teamcenter for its PLM system. Also Solid Edge will be replacing the company’s existing CAD system. The last time something like this happened I asked Siemens PR what the old CAD system was. I received a reply saying that they would get back to me but never did. So this time I am not going to bother asking. Getting through to Siemens PLM PR people can sometimes be quite frustrating.
I could not help but notice that the entire press release was about Teamcenter. Solid Edge was mentioned just once. It seemed almost because they felt that they had to mention it. I wonder if it would be the same if NX had replaced SCM Group’s existing CAD system.
Oh, and by the way. The contract is said to be valued more than $1.5 million.
