Lessons in the fast lane set for lift-off

There are big advantages to be gained by using PLM in motorsport, and now aerospace looks set to do the same

Lessons learned in successfully applying PLM to ensure the integrity of design enhancements in an F1 racing team are about to be applied in aerospace.

The F1 team is Red Bull racing, which has long been enjoying the benefits of what is now Siemens PLM’s Teamcenter software (formerly Iman PDF). And they are in good company. In fact, when Eureka visited the Redbull HQ, it discovered a representative from BAE Systems was also there, working on the Nimrod refurbishment programme. They are also rolling out Teamcenter, it seems, and were seeking to apply some of the same techniques that had been proven on the race track.

Red Bull owns two F1 teams - Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso – and has 150 seats of NX and Teamcenter.

Of Siemens PLM Teamcenter package, Steve Nevey, business development manager for Red Bull Technology says: “we refer to it as our digital backbone” - the process of making data available to colleagues, and managing engineering changes and the design and development process generally.
