The second version of RTT DeltaGen for Teamcenter will launch in August, bringing the visualization workflow inside Teamcenter.
It's been almost 3 years since I worked as VP of Product Strategy and Solution Architecture at RTT.
I'm happy to see that the project and partnerships that I was part of at their beginning have continued to grow and progress. VBOMs is a concept and idea which I was and am passionately behind. Companies have EBOMs and MBOMs but often don't have a concept of a VBOM (reasons I believe are largely historic, plus it's the only BOM which is entirely virtual, purely for visualization, not manufacturing, packaging, engineering, etc).
As for the Siemens Teamcenter integration, this too is something that I take pride in being part of. Visualization companies focus a lot of efforts on integrating with the CAD system and the file formats but often forget that the PLM system is the "life blood" system used by the company. Only with a connection to a PLM system can their be a VBOM, can you have change management, and universal company wide access and collaboration.
To add to the importance, Siemens is also a significant shareholder of RTT stock, and so it's great to have both sides of the partnership supporting the collaboration/integration.
In my former (pre RTT) company, Right Hemisphere, we also did something similar with SAP (who ultimately acquired the company) and made the RH technology part of the SAP PLM Visual Enterprise.
