Stay Agile with your Product Development

An integrated set of PLM and PDM capabilities to help businesses define and manage information throughout the product lifecycle. This application supports parts, multi-level bill of materials (BOMs), CMII standard configuration management and change management, approved vendor and manufacturer lists (AVL/AML), and documents.

Manage and Communicate Change

Managing and communicating change remains a core challenge for any company in product development due to ever-increasing complexity.

Aras helps make the process clearer, collaborative, and transparent. Product change histories are automatically captured and recorded as part of the product development, further building out the product’s Digital Thread.

Manage Your Product Variants Using Aras’ New Variant Management Application

Managing variants of complex product platforms is essential to controlling costs and staying competitive in today’s market. Learn how Aras’ Variant Management application helps you efficiently manage product variants on any abstraction level and with full traceability and change management. All variant definition information is maintained as part of the overall product digital thread managed by the Aras platform. This enables an efficient process of maximizing reuse, incorporating new product features, and performing change impact analysis.

Manage Documents Involved in the Creation of Your Products

During the lifecycle of a product, many documents are created containing critical information which needs to be shared, forming part of the product record. Document Management with Aras includes version and change control for files in multiple formats in a secure, searchable repository. Users across multiple teams and locations have easy access to critical information.

Digital Twins for any Asset in any Industry

Digital Twin Core enables the modeling, adapting, and extending of configurations for any asset, system of assets, in any industry. This eliminates the inaccuracies and cost associated with them by creating the context of every unique physical asset in the field so that organizations can support complex scenarios such as predictive maintenance, performance optimization, and even over-the-air software updates.

Transformational Technology to Manage Requirements

The rising complexity of systems across the industrial landscape is driving companies to adopt transformational technologies to manage requirements in context with total product configuration. Aras’ Requirements Engineering application is a new, next generation solution for managing requirements within a PLM platform.

Monitor Projects and Manage Product Development

Manage and view projects and processes with tools such as stage-gate/phase gate organizations, project trees, Gantt charts, tasks/activities, status roll-ups, and work breakdown structures. Manager, contributor, and executive dashboards provide insight into status, costs, and schedules. Manage resources, mediate risk, and maximize profitability with visibility into projects and programs.

Collaborative Change Management

The only constant in business is change. Leveraging Aras to manage your change process ensures enterprise visibility, traceability, and consistency in an environment that demands agility and unfettered collaboration.

The heart of Aras Innovator manages change requests, assessments, plans, and orders to a product or system with clear visibility into how they impact other parts of the system.

Aras®Component Engineering Overview

The Aras®Component Engineering applications makes it easy to select, source, and compare the electronic components that best meet your requirements. With the Aras Component Engineering application, users have instant access to complete, up-to-date technical data, as well as obsolescence and compliance information on more than 450 million board-level components in over 400 categories from leading manufacturers around the world — without launching multiple browsers or separate applications. The application embeds commercial component data from the IHS CAPS Universe database into the Aras environment, providing engineering and sourcing professionals with a single point of access to the information needed to design, procure, and sustain your company’s products.

Aras®Component Engineering is highly flexible, allowing organizations to tailor business processes to their specific requirements.

Take EBOMs to MBOMs with Dynamic Manufacturing Instructions

EBOM to MBOM translation can be hard. They can also be error prone and hard to maintain. With Aras Manufacturing Process Planning engineers can transform EBOM to MBOM while building the Bill of Process (BOP) into discreet steps. BOM reconciliation is made easy and embedded with shop floor ready assembly instructions.

Simplify How You Create and Manage Your Product Documentation

When creating documents such as catalogs, many technical publishing systems require that data be pulled from multiple sources, a potentially slow and error-prone process. Aras Technical Documentation is a content authoring tool that takes a new approach to the creation of technical publications by using referenced PLM content directly in a modular fashion.


Enterprise Simulation in the Digital Thread

With Aras Simulation Management, teams throughout the lifecycle can safely and robustly execute easy-to-use, automated, and repeatable simulation processes. Any engineer can initiate a simulation with automated access to accurate inputs, leverage available multiphysics, multi-fidelity tools and settings, compare findings  from one design variation to the next, and make timely decisions using  simulation results connected to the right version of the product.

And with available connectors to leverage existing commercial and in-house CAD and simulation software, you can easily scale your current simulation investments to more enterprise teams and avoid the time, cost, and training involved in a “rip and replace” effort.

Product Visualization Across the Lifecycle

Dynamic Product Navigation (DPN) is a shift from static representations of CAD geometry, to an environment where users can tailor their 3D view. This environment enables users to create queries to reflect dynamic graphic representations based on the specific business needs of a given criteria. This interactive 3D view includes rich visualization services across the platform to support the entire enterprise.

Collaborate in Context and Capture Design Intent

When it comes to effective communication, context is key. Many design teams use email or spreadsheets to relay information. Manual methods are disconnected, error prone, and take effort to connect the dots.

Visual Collaboration enables teams to track information around an object inside of the context of that item. This eliminates diverging conversations and ensures everyone is on the same page.

Bring organizational structure to your microsoft office documents

Microsoft Office is a key set of tools used during all stages of the product lifecycle for a myriad purposes. Many documents contain critical information which needs to be shared and forms part of the product record.

However, typically these documents are disconnected from the product record, get lost in shared folders and accidentally deleted from hard drives.

Automating How Work Gets Done

Aras Workflows are easy to create, manage, and modify without the requirement of using an outside administrator application. Various items can have separate workflows and can incorporate subroutines for ultimate Enterprise configurability.

Workflows That Work For You

A core benefit to implementing PLM is ensuring that work gets completed in a consistent and repeatable manner with visibility and structure. Work assignment, approvals, and reminders are managed systematically rather than dependent on email to track tasks and priorities.
