CSC Launches FASTRack for Teamcenter Software

May 13, 2010 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) — CSC announced it has launched FASTRack for Teamcenter software, a new turn-key product lifecycle management (PLM) business solution for engineering and manufacturing companies that design and build complex aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment, consumer goods or high-technology products.

According to CSC, this hardware, services and support solution, which is optimized for Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter, addresses common infrastructure and support challenges that companies can face with the integration of product data across their global design partners and suppliers.

"The FASTRack for Teamcenter solution creates value for mutual global manufacturing clients," said Eileen Sweeney, president, Global Manufacturing Industry Sector, CSC. "Clients are seeking new ways to grow, collaborate more effectively on a global scale and wisely invest their capital in strategic imperatives, not hardware. By working together, CSC and Siemens PLM Software enable clients to accomplish these goals with a PLM appliance and service delivery approach found with FASTRack for Teamcenter." FASTRack for Teamcenter is a pre-configured, secure and highly scalable "PLM Appliance" that deploys facilitating the global extension of Teamcenter environments of 25 to 1,000 users, without the issues associated with the ownership, complex installations or operational support of PLM hardware and operating environments. FASTRack is offered as a bundled service with ownership terms that benefit cost-constrained projects needing rapid delivery and global support.

FASTRack for Teamcenter, developed by CSC, in collaboration with Siemens PLM Software, IBM and NetApp, is a platform for deploying the Teamcenter PLM system. The FASTRack solution includes scalable hardware configurations built on IBM server and NetApp storage equipment, with ongoing operational services, remote monitoring and customer support delivered by CSC’s global IT organization. By utilizing FASTRack and Teamcenter, engineering and manufacturing firms shorten design-to-launch cycles, sharpen their advantages and bring new products to the market faster than their competitors.

FASTRack is the second product in CSC’s CADRack family of PLM managed service offerings that were initially launched in April 2009. The system can be deployed as a turn-key solution or configured and installed to specific PLM processes and data requirements, the company noted in a release.
