UGS and its open PLM strategy got a big nod this week when auto giant General Motors Corp. named the company among its top suppliers for 2006.
UGS, the only IT supplier to be honored among the 64 winners, was recognized, according to GM officials, for the impact its Teamcenter Product Lifecycle Management software, NX CAD software, and Tecnomatix digital manufacturing software have had on helping GM transform its innovation processes. Specifically, UGS was lauded for helping GM reduce its up-front vehicle development time.
UGS and GM have long been partners around PLM software. GM had been working for years on deploying Teamcenter across its enterprise to facilitate collaboration and the sharing of design data, and in 2005, the pair extended their relationship to include UGS’ Tecnomatix digital manufacturing software for handling factory layout, simulation and planning.
