PORT MELBOURNE, VC, Australia, Mar 31, 2021 – Supacat, a world leading specialist in design and engineering of high mobility defence vehicles, has selected Siemens software to boost their engagement with Rheinmetall on Australia’s LAND 400 defence program. The use of design lifecycle management and supply chain integration capabilities of Siemens’ Teamcenter software and NX software for computer-aided design (CAD) can help Supacat align their engineering processes with Rheinmetall, strengthen data governance and improve overall efficiency.
Through the implementation of software, Supacat can manage their engineering design process and product data in an integrated single-source environment.
The implementation has been funded by the Federal Government’s Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority Grant given to Supacat last year. The same software suite that is part of Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio, was also recently chosen by the U.S. Air Force to standardise their digital journey and product lifecycle management (PLM).
Michael Halloran, Managing Director Asia Pacific for Supacat, welcomed the collaboration with Siemens saying, “Implementation of this system allows us to integrate more closely with the Rheinmetall LAND 400 team and that lowers the barriers to the Australian supply chain entering the program.’’
Through the implementation of software, Supacat can manage their engineering design process and product data in an integrated single-source environment. Supacat will use NX to model and analyse products in 3D in a process that is integrated into the Teamcenter PLM system. Teamcenter will allow Supacat to manage all engineering design workflow and approval processes, data and supporting documentation in an integrated single source.
Samantha Murray, Managing Director of Siemens Digital Industries Software in the region said that the implementation was a key step for the Australian defence industry.
“It’s great to collaborate with local Australian companies like Supacat doing innovative work that helps them connect to global supply chains. We’re also excited about helping upskill their staff on world-leading technology. Supacat has been taking giant strides in the areas of defence design and engineering. I commend them on this investment into future-proofing their digital capabilities to global standards,” said Ms Murray.
Both Teamcenter and NX are part of Siemens’ Xcelerator software portfolio, – an integrated portfolio of software, services and application development platform that can be personalised and adapted to fit customer and industry-specific needs to help companies of all sizes become digital enterprises. It is widely used to develop some of the most sophisticated global products and systems in industries including automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding and high-tech electronics.
