Describes new software tools introduced by Tecnomatix Technologies that herald a new concept in e‐Manufacturing. To its existing products, Tecnomatix has added new communication software tools that allow OEMs and suppliers throughout the supply chain to collaborate over the Internet. At the same time the “old” products have been further developed, and re‐launched under the eMPower brand, in order to link into the Web‐based concept. Application suites for planning, engineering, operations and collaboration are introduced and industry‐specific packaged solutions described. The vision of BMW in applying Tecnomatix’s tools to further its concept of “brandless” plants and reduce model development times is also summarised.
