This article is unsubstantiated baloney. I recommend it be removed.Cyon Steve (talk) 00:06, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Certainly there's a more constructive way to criticize the article than to call it "unsubstantiated baloney". I assume that you don't mean that every single statement in the article is false, therefore to call the entire article "baloney" would be inaccurate. If you have an issue with a particular part of the article, you might want to raise your concerns with that text here (or perhaps even correct it, preferably with a source). As to the "unsubstantiated" complaint, for the most part you are correct. There are no third-party reliable sources in this article which should be corrected. -- Atamachat 04:51, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

First let me say (as it states on my user page - User:aakelley) I work for Siemens, currently for the Siemens Industry Automation Division, but for 14 years prior to I worked for Siemens PLM Software and its predecessor companies (starting with SDRC in 1996). According to all the Wikipedia guidelines I have read I can add some references here and let the larger community decide whether they should be added to the article or not. So, with that in mind, here goes. If this is the wrong approach, please drop a comment on my user talk page (User talk: aakelley) so I can figure out how to help resolve the suggestion that this article be deleted.

These are all recent articles from independent third parties. If more historical articles are required, again, let me know and I can post some of them. --Aakelley (talk) 20:50, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

They may be third party sources, but none seem to be reliable third party sources with a reputation for fact checking and accuracy. Blogs certainly dont fall into the acceptable third party sources. Active Banana (talk) 01:21, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
Good point. Here are two other 3rd party sources that are not blogs:

May be due to the wikipedia deletion policy recommends this article to be removed, but to my opinion this provides good information. --Sreerup (talk) 6:45, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Well...... exactly why should follow your opinion rather than our policies? Active Banana (talk) 01:18, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Why exactly are we considering removing this entry? Other than a single person's opinion stating this is 'unsubstantiated baloney', which isn't exactly a compelling, I see no argument to take this action. Siemens PLM is part of the Industrial Automation division within Siemens. It is a peer level company to PTC, Dassault Systems and others which offer PLM systems. I link to this reference for work purposes. If anything, the definition should be refined based on consensus in the community. (Chadkjackson (talk) 15:01, 5 September 2010 (UTC))

Changed tagging[edit]

Changed the tag from multiple issues to refimprove, I assume the article must have improved ? Sf5xeplus (talk) 17:24, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Move/rename to UGS Corp.[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page moved -- JHunterJ (talk) 13:28, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Siemens PLM SoftwareUGS Corp. – As noted in the article, UGS Corp. was acquired by Siemens AG. Since UGS Corp. no longer exists as a separate company its Wikipedia entry should be retained for historical purposes. Engineering Animation Inc., SDRC and Tecnomatix are companies that were merged with/acquired by UGS Corp. and their entries still exist in Wikipedia, so UGS Corp.'s Wikipedia entry should similarly be retained.
