PLANO, TEXAS-Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, announced that Chrysler Group LLC, which produces Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram Truck and Mopar vehicles and products, has selected Siemens PLM Software`s technology for product design and development.

Chrysler Group began using Teamcenter software, Siemens PLM Software`s digital lifecycle management solution, as its corporate-wide PDM system in 2008. Teamcenter provides a single source of product knowledge across a company, available at any time in any location during the product development process.

Chrysler Group has now added NX software, Siemens PLM Software`s comprehensive digital product development solution, to provide efficiency gains in engineering and design and to help create a common product development platform.

"Integration of this tool will help to enhance our ability to collectively engineer new products with improved quality and faster time to market," said Scott Kunselman, senior vice president - engineering, Chrysler Group LLC.

"Chrysler`s decision to replace existing solutions with NX and Teamcenter as its corporate-wide standard is a testament to our commitment to provide a robust, open PLM platform for the automotive industry," said Tony Affuso, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, Siemens PLM Software. "Siemens PLM Software is honored to partner with Chrysler to deliver a solution that enhances innovation and manages complexity, both of which are requirements for today`s market."

Siemens PLM Software`s industry-leading technology is used by automakers and suppliers to collaborate, plan, design and validate the development and manufacturing engineering of vehicles. The tools satisfy the critical needs of leading automakers for managing collaboration across complex engineering functions and throughout the extended supply chain. By breaking down barriers between engineering functions, providing real-time access to information, and performing analysis and simulation, Siemens PLM Software has delivered double-digit efficiency improvements.
