Canon clicks onto Siemens PLM software for global development

Electronics giant Canon has selected Siemens PLM Software’s (formerly UGS) technology to become its universal next-generation product development platform for use throughout the group.

UGS is currently used in Canon Image Communication Products Operations. Now, Siemens PLM’s NX digital product development software and its Teamcenter collaborative product data management solution will become its cornerstone PLM system for new product development.

“Like Canon, Siemens PLM Software continually strives for greater innovation and enhanced customer satisfaction,” says a Canon spokesperson.

“So when it came time to select Canon’s next-generation keystone PLM platform, we made the judgment, following an extensive evaluation process, that Siemens PLM Software’s collaboration and innovation solution was the best platform to enforce our product engineering innovation.

“NX has already demonstrated its strength as a communication tool by further enhancing the exchange of data between each of the design divisions.

“We expect Teamcenter’s collaborative product data management capabilities to further enhance collaboration and innovation throughout the Canon group and its affiliates, allowing Canon to continue its tradition of providing customers innovative imaging technology to help make their creative visions a reality.”
