– Schaeffler to standardize on PTC solutions for advanced digital capabilities for product development and consolidated IT landscape
– Alliance accelerates digital transformation initiatives of Schaeffler Roadmap 2025
BOSTON, Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) and global automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler today announced a new alliance that will see Schaeffler standardize on PTC solutions to deploy an integrated, end-to-end IT landscape. Schaeffler will also inform PTC's efforts to further develop and evolve market-specific standard solutions to better meet the needs of automotive and industrial companies.
The new alliance will build on the successful twenty-year relationship based on Schaeffler's use of PTC's CAD and PLM solutions. These tools are essential for the introduction and further development of Schaeffler's initiatives for digital twins and for visualization of 3D models, for example those used for augmented reality projects.
Schaeffler plans to leverage PTC's experience and robust end-to-end solutions to move from a customized engineering IT environment to using standard applications across the enterprise. This will enable prompt responses to rapidly changing requirements in a dynamic, competitive environment.
The alliance will focus on the optimization of the existing environment, as well as its expansion with projects such as Schaeffler's Enterprise Traceability or Model-Based Enterprise and the deeper integration of software development tools. The goal is company-wide integration of the software and system development solutions (Application Lifecycle Management and Model-Based Systems Engineering). This also enables improvement in the mapping of critical systems engineering requirements, such as the fulfillment of varying country-specific safety regulations.
"The alliance with PTC is yet another milestone in our digitization strategy within Roadmap 2025," says Uwe Wagner, Chief Technology Officer at Schaeffler AG. "End-to-end data models, 3D data, and digital twins are already elementary components of the research and development process for Schaeffler today. The increasing complexity requires consistent IT solutions in all development areas for more innovation, agility, and efficiency. To achieve these, it is crucial for Schaeffler to work with strong partners like PTC."
"Through our work with Schaeffler, we aim to advance and further develop market-specific digital transformation solutions," said Jim Heppelmann, President and CEO, PTC. "Both companies will benefit from more robust collaboration."

Talk of $100-a-barrel oil has intensified in recent days, but triple-digit prices may pose a disadvantage for major oil-producing nations that are set to meet next week to decide the best course of action on production levels. “It isn’t in OPEC+’s best interest to see prices go through $90 [a barrel] this year and move higher,” says Bob Ryan, chief commodity and energy strategist at BCA Research. “The potential for demand destruction is high at these levels, especially if the [U.S. dollar] remains strong,” he adds, as local currency costs will become “prohibitive,” especially in emerging market economies.

As of Jan. 20, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite had entered official correction territory (a decline of 10% from recent highs), and it was threatening to pull the widely followed S&P 500 down with it. In other words, with downside catalysts aplenty, we could be on the verge of a steep correction or stock market crash. While volatility during crashes and corrections can be unnerving, history has shown that these relatively short-term dips are always a buying opportunity for patient investors.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) -The World Trade Organization authorised China on Wednesday to impose $645 million of compensatory tariffs against the United States, a ruling that was immediately blasted by Washington. China went to the WTO in 2012 to challenge anti-subsidy tariffs the United States imposed between 2008 and 2012, mainly during the term of U.S. President Barack Obama, on 22 Chinese products ranging from solar panels to steel wire. The decade-long case involving alleged subsidies has centred on whether the United States could treat Chinese firms in which the government owns a majority stake as controlled by the state.
