Teamcenter PLM Integration

Establish Teamcenter as the source of truth for product/component metadata, and bill of materials (BOM), while ION parts remain up to date with changes made in Teamcenter with no manual intervention. This integration eliminates the extra effort it typically takes to manually import part details and BOM information into ION, which will help you create procedures and get to building faster.

Teamcenter Engineering Change Order (ECO) Approved

On change order approval within Teamcenter, an integration with ION will fire which propagates part information and BOM changes to ION. Any time a new part, a new revision, or a new BOM is released in Teamcenter via the change order process, that information will propagate to ION. ION, with the use of mBOM versions, automatically generates a new draft mBOM version for that part, adds all of the components, and then releases that mBOM version in ION.

Set up

  1. Navigate to the Integrations page designated by the two arrows in the bottom lefthand corner of your screen.

  2. Select the Teamcenter integration instance from the marketplace, and hit Configure.

  3. Hit Next and add your API credentials. You can find documentation on API credentials here API Keys

    • IMPORTANT: Each API Key is associated with a specific environment, be sure to generate the API keys from the correct environment and configure the automation to the designated environment.

  4. Ensure the revision schemes for your production and prototype parts are created in ION and the names are inputted into the configuration screen.

  5. To finish the configuration, you can map the data between the two platforms by adding key-value pairs for ION native attributes and custom attributes. The keys are ION fields and the values are Teamcenter fields.

  6. Hit Finish to complete the integration configuration. Before leaving this page, copy the URL by clicking the clipboard icon as seen below in order to configure the endpoint for the workflow handler in Teamcenter. If the URL is hidden, you can show it by clicking on the No API Key Configured dropdown.

  7. ION's API needs the Teamcenter data formatted into a JSON payload. Here is the format required for Prismatic to make the proper API calls:
