UGS has announced that MAN Roland Druckmaschinen, the world’s second largest printing systems manufacturer, will replace CATIA, which it has used for 20 years, with UGS’ Teamcenter and NX software at its Offenbach, Germany site.
MAN Roland will use Teamcenter, UGS’ digital lifecycle management offering, as its product data management platform for its design database, which is a significant source of information for the company.
In addition, following pilot programs that included extensive competitive evaluations, MAN Roland also selected NX, UGS’ digital product development solution, as its computer-aided design platform for sheetfed offset presses. The company also uses data migration tools from UGS to convert high quality construction data in an effort to reduce the time spent on post-editing by design engineers.
MAN Roland selected UGS to replace its incumbent product lifecycle management system, CATIA, following an extensive evaluation process, and cited enhanced functionality, efficiency and financial benefits as key determining factors in its choice.
The manufacturer plans to implement Teamcenter in 2007 and NX in 2008.
