To support users in quickly estimating inbound transport costs and carbon footprint for the supply chain alongside all your other product costs and carbon footprint information, Siemens provides integration to Siemens Digital Logistics.
Product Cost Management Module
With the new add-on module Teamcenter Transport Cost and Carbon Calculator available in Teamcenter Product Cost Management users can support the following use case: to calculate the cost and carbon footprint of a part sourced from the US to Germany. What is needed is mandatory information such as origin and destination, which can be automatically used from the bill of material (BOM).
Several transport modes like road, air, sea and rail are available in the Teamcenter Transport Cost and Carbon Calculator. The user can enter information like transport quantity or transport weight. This data is then exported via cloud service to Siemens Digital Logistics where the cost and carbon footprint for the requested transport are calculated. The results are transferred to Teamcenter Product Cost.
Management automatically picked up in the BOM. This new capability allows you to simulate and optimize transportation costs and carbon footprint data, reduce time and errors associated with using multiple systems, and choose the most cost-effective and sustainable transport option. Features include:
- Calculate transport cost and carbon emissions for each shipment.
- Keep an eye on all your transport costs and carbon emissions in one place.
- Validate, augment, and standardize data.
- Measure transport cost and carbon emissions directly at the source by connecting shipping companies, airlines, parcel services, and carriers.
- Support cost and carbon footprint benchmarking against other companies.
- Automate your cost and carbon footprint reporting by providing customers with accurate information on the cost and emissions of each shipment.
Maximize the value of your cost and carbon footprint calculations with the new and updated reference data.
Accurate data is the basis for precise calculation results. With the regularly updated benchmark data in Teamcenter Product Cost Management you know immediately where you stand compared to the competition. The quarterly main releases for the benchmark data are in February, May, August and November.
Production site data is provided twice a year, in February and March, and includes labor rates, labor burden, floor space costs and interest rates. The energy prices and interest rates are updated twice a year, in May and November. The machine database is regularly extended with new machines and updated four times a year.
Content pricing: The update for material prices and overhead rates is available four times a year. The material prices are updated four times a year and the overhead rates once a year in August.
Content carbon emissions: The carbon emission data for materials and energy contains reference data for common materials, semi-finished materials, and energies, and is updated twice a year in May and November.
