Toyota Motor Corporation has expanded its vehicle safety information management system based on Siemens’ Teamcenter software.
The product lifecycle management (PLM) system has been in use since January 2013 to comply with the ISO 26262 safety standard.
ISO 26262 Functional Safety standard defines functional safety for automotive equipment applicable throughout the lifecycle of all automotive electronic and electrical systems.
In order to ensure compliance, Toyota decided to implement a new safety information management system based on PLM that would standardise processes across multiple divisions.
Toyota cited the widespread adoption of Teamcenter by the global manufacturing industry and Siemens’ open policy for PLM technology as important factors in its decision to deploy the platform.
The manufacturer said that the PLM solution has allowed it to enhance collaboration between multiple divisions and significantly improve traceability management.
“We are confident it (our software) will continue to provide the right information, in the right place, and at the right time, to help Toyota continue to make smart decisions throughout vehicle development,” commented Chuck Grindstaff, president and CEO of Siemens PLM Software.
