F.X MEILLER, a global provider of heavy duty trucking systems, replaced their legacy PLM with Aras and gained dramatic performance improvement in multiCAD management.
With performance improvement a key criteria, MEILLER conducted testing to choose the right PLM provider to replace their expensive / difficult to maintain legacy system. Six different real world assembly structures were used in the tests with CAD file sizes between 50 and 450 MB. Aras outperformed legacy PLM systems in every testing scenario, performing from 41-81% faster and excelling on larger assemblies. Learn more about MEILLER performance testing on Aras.
As if that wasn't enough, in moving to Aras, MEILLER's database decreased in size from 32 GB to 7 GB, the amount of memory required by the system reduced from 50 to 20 GB, CPUs went from 14 to 4 and Servers were reduced from 3 to 1 – that's hard dollar savings in any environment. And that's not a reflection of fewer files. During the implementation, 2.8 million records were migrated from the legacy PLM system into Aras, including 350,000 CATIA V5 CAD documents.
By migrating away from their legacy PLM system, MEILLER consolidated its global environment into a single, modern PLM platform.
