Pioneer FA Selects Aras PLM to Improve Document Management Process


Global electronics manufacturer streamlines file management and version control

ANDOVER, Mass. and Tokyo, Japan – August 29, 2016 – Aras®, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, today announced that Pioneer FA, a leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of electronic communications component manufacturing equipment, selected Aras Innovator® to streamline the management of CAD models and drawing files used by product teams during the product development process. Prior to using Aras, the company used a combination of systems to track storage and retrieval of product data files which was resource-intensive, especially to manage their complex file identification naming process.

After reviewing major systems in the managing CAD file market, the Pioneer FA team selected Aras Innovator with Aras Certified Partner SCSK. Aras Innovator helps simplify identification of their existing CAD files, as well as improves their ability to search sub-components by parent assembly and track revisions and version control.

“Pioneer FA looked to meet the challenges associated with the design and development of complex product systems, especially with the increasing commoditization of components,” said Peter Schroer, CEO of Aras Corporation. “Aras will help the company reduce errors, improve design collaboration and meet accelerated product development cycles.”
