Invention Machine continues its quest to draw its innovation platform into the more well-known sphere of PLM, announcing a new partnership with Siemens PLM Software to create tighter integration between the two platforms.
Invention Machine, which announced a similar deal with PLM vendor PTC in February, is pursuing these partnerships with PLM vendors to help engineers better leverage design data to bring more innovative products to market faster, officials claim. Siemens PLM Software and Invention Machine will offer the Goldfire Innovator Connector to Teamcenter software, which delivers direct access to data stored within the PLM platform, allowing design engineers to integrate engineering documents and reports while leveraging Goldfire Innovator’s problem analysis workbench and semantic knowledgebase to build structure around the innovation process.
Goldfire Innovator 4.5 offers industry-specific Risk Analysis templates, improved multi-lingual support and enhancements in the areas of search performance.
