For several years the company had been running a leading large scale PLM system. The UNIX-based system spanned 3 servers with 14 CPUs and 50 gigabytes of memory, making it challenging and expensive to maintain. Although the system managed MEILLER’s extensive library of CATIA V5 CAD data, its high resource demands and operational complexity caused significant performance issues and the system offered little additional product or process automation capabilities for an increasingly global product development environment. MEILLER executives knew it was time to modernize to maintain and extend competitive industry leadership. MEILLER wanted to improve performance, reduce costs and migrate away from the legacy Unix-based PLM system onto a PLM platform with a modern Web architecture on Microsoft. MEILLER also wanted to add new functionality to further streamline and improve the global product development processes.

PLM, or product lifecycle management, is the glue between PDM and the extended enterprise. PLM takes product data and puts it in the correct context for each user. For some users the CAD file is the center of their universe, but for many others CAD-based data is just a small subset of the entire set of product information they work with. PLM drives the reason why CAD files are created in the first place, the enterprise processes they go through and what happens after it’s done. PLM is about all customer requirements, new product introduction, compliance and regulations, tooling and distributing data to the factory, manufacturing, the supply chain… It’s the entire lifecycle of the product.

Medical device makers are required to document and show traceability from the first phone call when they had the idea, to what decisions were made on what basis when they started designing," to years out after the product has been in the field, Schroer said. "Most companies throw away that first stuff because it's (often) not relevant. In medical devices, it is."

Both Aras VPLM and Autodesk PLM 360 sit on top of Autodesk Vault to provide add-on PLM functionality, so they are now in direct competition. Aras’ value prop comes from a more mature product and more out-of-the-box functionality. And if a company that uses Autodesk design software with Autodesk Vault needs PLM, but is hesitant about going to the cloud, it now has an on-premise option. As Aras VPLM runs on the customer’s servers and network (as opposed to being cloud-based), it’s easy for Aras VPLM to connect to, for example, the customer’s Microsoft Active Directory for single sign-on (SSO), which is not currently possible with PLM 360..

Closed systems that lock down data, bog down collaboration, inhibit innovation and artificially increase the cost of doing business simply won’t fly.

AMD: What are some of the major benefits and setbacks when integrating ERP and CAD/CAM programs? Schroer: When PLM, ERP, and CAD/CAM programs are integrated, A&D companies have a closed loop process that saves time, eliminates errors, reduces costs, and ultimately increases profitability by getting better products to market faster. Integration means entering data once and sharing it across the entire lifecycle; there is no manual re-entry, no data entry errors, and a bi-directional flow of information and business analytics goes from CAD to PLM to ERP and back. This provides an excellent opportunity to discover areas for improvement that would otherwise go unrecognized.

Why would companies using SolidWorks want Aras EPLM? Because it works with what you already have. If you’re considering a PLM system and your company is committed to SolidWorks, then you should take a serious look at Aras EPLM. By building Aras EPLM right on top of EPDM, you get the added functionality your business needs at the enterprise level without disrupting your SolidWorks designers, ripping out what already works or sacrificing your investment in SolidWorks Enterprise PDM. It’s a natural extension of your SolidWorks implementation.

"Sticker shock can be a problem in the very earliest stages of a project, during the implementation and initial deployment, and later on in the system development. The cost of PLM licenses can stop a PLM initiative before it ever gets started. Likewise, license fees can halt the expansion of the PLM system limiting access and making it impossible to get it to everyone in the workflow. Since Aras doesn’t charge PLM license fees, I am admittedly a little biased here but that doesn’t change the fact that license fees are a big barrier to entry for companies of all sizes."
