ANALYST REPORT: Aras Product Innovation Platform Assessment

Recently, leading PLM analyst firm CIMdata published an assessment of Aras to validate our capabilities as a Product Innovation Platform. Criteria were developed based on research conducted on PLM investment, sustainability and enterprise application architecture frameworks.

On all 12 dimensions Aras was “Excellent” or “Very Good”. 

Critical Dimensions include:

  • Through Lifecycle Configuration Management & Traceability
  • End-to-End Lifecycle Support
  • Data Management & Find
  • Process & Knowledge Management
  • Enterprise Infrastructure Utilization
  • Openness
  • Sustainability
  • Upgradability
  • Availability
  • Connection
  • Gravity
  • Flow

As CIMdata noted, “Overall, CIMdata found that the Aras PLM Platform meets or exceeds the requirements of a Product Innovation Platform.”

From our perspective, this means that our platform is second to none and that we are well positioned to help you take your Digital Transformation initiative and PLM strategy to the next level.

NEWS: Industry Survey Reveals Gaps in Manufacturers’ Readiness for Digital Transformation and Product Innovation

This month we got the results of a PLM Benchmark Survey for Enterprise Organizations which had some surprising results. The findings reveal a significant gap in manufacturers’ readiness for Digital Transformation as a result of disconnected product processes and poor enterprise-wide adoption of product lifecycle management strategies.

Many manufacturers either don’t use PLM software to its full potential or are hindered by legacy systems that are not easily upgradable to support their current product processes.

In contrast it was clear that industry pacesetters turn to next-generation Product Innovation Platforms for traceability and Digital Thread.

Disconnected Product Processes Hinder Innovation 
Driven by increasingly complex and connected products—from smart industrial equipment to autonomous cars—global manufacturers rely on PLM systems to manage product information. However, the survey revealed that only 37% of respondents were satisfied with their PLM deployments, and only 54% believe PLM helps them achieve their goals—largely because they are underutilizing the functionality and poor cross-functional capabilities:

  • Systems engineering should be a core use case for PLM – but only 19% use PLM to support systems engineering
  • Configuration management & change management are central tenets of PLM – but only 42% of organizations are using PLM in this way
  • PLM must encompass multiple design disciplines and domains – but only 51% of respondents are able to use PLM to collaborate across functions, suggesting that product data is siloed or housed in non-product development systems
  • Most PLM system vendors are primarily providers of CAD tools – but only 31% of respondents use PLM for MCAD/ECAD data

The findings were intriguing, to say the least. We believe that in order to realize key strategic initiatives - like Digital Thread, Digital Twin, connected products and smart factories – companies will need greater flexibility and control. You’re going to need a true product innovation platform that’s open and enables you to move faster than you ever could in the past.

Featured Article: The Business of Engineering in Action

The Business of Engineering is a term we’ve used to describe the multiple facets of developing today’s complex, connected products – from the design challenges to the disciplines involved to the type of data and processes that connect them. In essence, it reflects the elaboration and expansion of the product development challenge that teams face today and a contrast to the Science of Engineering which historically referred to the world of CAD.

Today, more and more of product development is a systems engineering challenge where each system is now a system of systems with layered software, electronics, and physical designs. Despite the rising complexity, these product designs must still go through the same validation and scale up for manufacturing at the same or better quality, reliability, and profitability.

At Aras we believe the emphasis needs to be on the processes which support the business if we are going to enable a smart, connected future.  Find out more and learn how you can drive the digital transformation in the Business of Engineering at your organization with Aras.
