Kurt Pennington – Siemens Technical Specialist focused on Teamcenter. Kurt has been with Siemens for over 13 years. He has over 35 years of experience in the design and manufacturing area with past employers such as General Dynamics C4 where he supported superconducting supercollider, and the telecom company Andrew Corporation. Kurt also has extensive hands-on experience with Solid Edge and various CAD systems and has a working knowledge of PDM tools, processes, and workflow that engineers address daily.
Powerex’s small team of 12 design engineers used Solid Edge for configure-to-order and engineer-to-order products, which adds up to tens of thousands of design across the industries. They deployed Siemens PDM tool – Teamcenter Rapid Start to quickly get control of their design and revision control for all issues. Powerex saw an immediate productivity gain: overall productivity and engineering efficiency improvement expected to be up to 20 percent of the engineering department labor.
