Tier One automotive supplier Intier Automotive Closures has chosen EDS PLM Solutions’ Teamcenter product as its enterprise-wide product development, collaboration and sourcing platform. The new system will support 900 internal users and suppliers on three continents, resulting in a common product development and sourcing environment across the enterprise.
"Intier Closures is in a position where we need to design and deploy a business and technology infrastructure to support a period of rapid business growth over the next three years," said John Farrell, president of Intier Automotive Closures. "To ensure that significant competitive advantage is realized, we must minimize the cost of this growth while at the same time enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of our product development and launch activities."
Intier’s new system provides a link between engineering and purchasing functions by integrating A.T. Kearney’s suite of purchasing solutions into Teamcenter.
EDS PLM Solutions incorporates the CAD/CAM offerings of UGS and SDRC, including Unigraphics, I-deas and Solid Edge brands.
