$$$Money Pit

If you are a very large company, and have unlimited funds to pour into a plm system, Teamcenter is for you.

Pros

$ Extreamly powerful software, endless customizations , secure & reliable, works great with NX $

Cons

Needlessly complex to administer. You will need to hire several highly skilled IT/Teamcenter administrators with programming backgrounds, or spend tens of thousands, and months of time, getting existing IT people trained.
This software was created for General Motors and companies of simmilar size. If you are a small to medium size company forget it. We were pushed into using it by our parent company, we do not have the resources to properly impliment or administer it, so for us it is an extreamely expensive CAD vault. We don't even scratch the surface of it's capabilities and we are going broke paying for NX and Teamcenter licenses.

Siemens Teamcenter user for nearly a decade.

Stayed organized. Stored data efficiently. Never lost data. Easily shared data. Recovered data mistakenly deleted.

Pros

Keeps your CAD, analysis, and all data organized. Everything from CAD files to PDF's can be stored and saved on your network. Revisions ensure the latest data is always available. Personal folder structure is possible, so the company may have its structure, but one can still create their folders to organize the same information. The software can be tuned to your company's needs, enabling and disabling functions and also creating rules. It's fast to log in and the latest version has some browser based capability. If data is deleted by accident, it can be quickly restored. Highly secure, controlling access to data to only certain employees, or read-only rights.

Cons

It is complex, which I'm not sure is a Con, because of all the features, but somebody in the company has to work full-time with Teamcenter, so it does require significant investment. There is a lot of maintenance, organization, structuring, etc to manage your data. More needs to be browser based, phone/tablet app based. Operating software on a PC is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

Love/Hate

If you don't have a team of top level computer programmers, flexlm license experts, highly skilled IT professionals, and LOTS of money, I would stay away from this software. Teamcenter is an absolute nightmare to set up and administer, and Siemens training and support are completely worthless. There is ZERO useful documentation. You will find nothing but documents containing general overviews of every topic and no examples. It literally seems as though they don't want you to understand or have the ability to administer their software. I'm convinced they scrub the internet of any useful information so they can charge you thousands of dollars for their useless training that will leave you with more questions than answers. The admin training I attended consisted of cramming what takes years to learn into one week. My company has spent millions on Seimens software over the last ten years and we are still in PLM limbo. For nine years our Teamcenter was nothing but a glorified CAD vault. We are only now starting to scratch the surface with a few simple workflows. The only companies I have ever known to successfully use this software are giants like General Motors and Boeing. If you are a small to medium size company, forget it. It will be the costliest mistake you will ever make.

Pros

From a CAE user/client perspective it is an extremely powerful and versatile software. Works with any CAD system and supports many file types. Data management, revision control, security, and the ability to integrate across teams is excellent. From CAD & engineering to manufacturing to quality, purchasing, etc. it can manage live data across all areas of your company. But...........

Cons

Configuration, administration, and support are horrible.

Decent product life cycle management software but too many hidden menus.

I use this sw to open CAD files on a remote server. It lets me create parts, assemblies, etc. I can collaborate with my team on the design. The software lets me open cad files so I can analyze the mechanical system I work in (measure part length, look at interference between parts etc).

Pros

The only thing I like is the impact analysis feature. It lets me see what higher assemblies use my parts

Cons

It let's me finish my work but is very convoluted. Lost of hidden menus and features. Maybe is the fault of my employer that didn't train me well. I wish the search was more powerful (advanced search). Don't like the fact that there are different search templates.

This is an exceptional software which has various of capabilities. It really is impressive.

The control of the processes and importance of this is what this software contributes to my life.

Pros

The most impressive side of the software is that you don't have limits. You can create a progress that includes every step you want. And this provides the user to create it's own control and approval system. This is an effective way to control all your work.

Cons

The processes, sometimes, might get stuck in the system and it requires a admin to fix it every time. I is kind of annoying.

Joined a company and found out that they were using this software. Very helpful software for us.

Pros

Very detailed oriented software and some of the features that are useful to us while working. I like that how it provides a detailed description of an object. The quick access toolbar is very helpful for me.

Cons

The least thing that this software lacks is shortcuts. Now a day people use shortcuts to save more time at work. The current look or design of the software is classic for me. They should upgrade or give options to change the design of the software.

Teamcenter

Pros

Teamcenter software allows the user to manage all necessary documents and configurations for building products.
It has the ability to manage 3D models as well as design products from the ground up.
Linking Bill of Materials to Manufacturing, ordering and operations to take to the design from concept to build.

Cons

Ability to link to outside software it difficult. Which is why Siemens makes or supports different modules for the same software capabilities.

Teamcenter is really great software, highly tailorable, but with a steep learning curve!

Pros

The software keeps all our product data in one place, correctly linked and without the risk of information loss. The ability to quickly create new revisions of products without breaking links and creating complex new structures is awesome and so needed!

Cons

The learning curve is really steep for a newbie to Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), with little forgiveness for mistakes (e.g. deleting objects is a nightmare, even for admins). The fact that the software is so configurable is both the biggest Pro and biggest Con as no one manual will give you answers you seek to your own organisational questions.

Powerful software, but there's a significant learning curve

It's a comprehensive PLM software. Complete control over product and its lifetime, as well as great great connection to other pieces of software.

Pros

It's very comprehensive. There are many options, on how and what you can search, what you can do with the results of your search. It has great compatibility with other pieces of software (NX, CATIA, also Visualization Mockup). It has an integrated 3D viewer that is enough for 90% of what one would need a 3D Viewer for.

Cons

It is not very intuitive, and thus takes some time of getting used to it, and there aren't many free resources online.
