Project Description

Quintus is keeping control and order with Teamcenter PLM

Quintus Technologies lets Teamcenter PLM support their processes, all aiming toward high delivery quality for their customers. NX CAD is their design tool of choice.

Quintus uses Teamcenter to support their excellent delivery quality

Quintus Technologies with headquarters in Västerås, Sweden, employs about 160 people globally. They are the world leader in high-pressure technology. Quintus is specialized in the design, manufacturing, installation, and support of high-pressure systems for sheet metal forming and the densification of advanced materials and critical industrial components. Their systems are sold globally and delivered to customers within industries such as aerospace, automotive, energy, and medical implants.

In 2003 Quintus started to use Teamcenter, from Siemens Digital Industries, as their product lifecycle management system. Teamcenter connects all the information about Quintus products with the people in their organization.

Quintus’ processes are what puts Teamcenter PLM ahead

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.”

“Our processes are what puts Teamcenter ahead. Teamcenter enables the processes to be quick, smooth, and correct”, says Malin Erlandsson.

Education facilitates high quality

The information that needs to be added to Teamcenter by the designers can sometimes be more extensive than they wish. Therefore Quintus ensures the education of everyone in the organization on how valuable the information will be for someone else in the chain. Many decisions throughout Quintus’ organization are made with Teamcenter as the source of knowledge.

The flexibility of Teamcenter is praised by Quintus. Malin finds a good partner invaluable, in order to realize their own visions and obtain ideas for improvements.

“Our setup of Teamcenter is not out of the box – we have tailored it after our needs. To have a partner like Nextage, that knows what we have created when it comes to flows and changes, is invaluable,” says Malin Erlandsson.
