Malin Erlandsson is Technical Project Manager and Teamcenter Lead at Quintus Technologies.
What Teamcenter PLM brings us is control and order”, says Malin Erlandsson. “The fact that every member of the team works in the same way and follows the same processes with a common customer focus, contributes to Quintus’ success. Working without Teamcenter would be difficult.”
The demand for a PLM system originally came from deep within the organization – from the design engineers. They saw a great advantage in reusing their work in an orderly manner and to be able to release drawings to the purchasing department at an early stage in new projects. In addition, they wanted to work in an even more quality-driven way, and have access to detailed reporting.
Quintus’ larger projects can take up to 14 months from order to delivery and mounting. As soon as the right information has been entered into Teamcenter, the right materials can be ordered and the engineers start working. Revision handling, clarity, and approval flows for changes are critical to avoid mistakes. The time saved throughout the projects is money in the end, both for the customer and Quintus. Whereas Quintus’ products are sold based on superior technology, experience, and knowledge, Teamcenter gives control of costs, helps cut lead times, and maintains high quality.
“We, the designers are the feeders of information into Teamcenter from NX CAD, says Conny Ruuth, Design Engineer, and System Owner CAD at Quintus. “With Teamcenter and NX CAD integration, management can see the structure and vision of the high-pressure system from day one when a system is ordered.”
