Happy New Year to everyone and hope you had a great holiday break. 2010 ended up being another record year here at Aras and now we're looking forward to a great 2011.

Thought it'd be worth doing an Aras Year in Review summary blog post in case you missed the details along the way, and there are also some highlights that you won't find anywhere else. Also, Jen put together a great year in pictures as well, enjoy.


WEBCAST SERIES - ACE Innovation Series: Executive Strategy Webcasts
Over the past several years the Aras Community Event (ACE) series has expanded globally and participation has been phenomenal. We have however gotten numerous requests for more online sessions that don't require a travel budget to attend... we got your messages loud & clear: Do more Webcasts!

So, we've put together the ACE INNOVATION SERIES of webcasts, and will be running them throughout the year. These sessions will feature a cross-section of corporate leaders, subject matter experts, and hands-on users covering a wide range of PLM-related topics from Executive Strategy to Corporate Benchmarking, Industry Practices and more.

The intent of each ACE webcast is to provide a single presentation that delivers the type of perspective and insight that you get at an ACE conference session in-person.

To kick-off the New Year we have several excellent strategy-oriented sessions that will be conducted by the innovation experts at Kalypso and PLM industry thought leader, Jim Brown from Tech-Clarity.

Upcoming Live Webcasts

Journey to Best-in-Class Product Development -- January 26, 2011 at 11:00 am ET
Speakers: Greg Adkins and Jim Brown

Top 5 Strategic Goals of PLM -- February 23, 2011 at 11:00 am ET
Speakers: Andreas Lindenthal and Jim Brown

Transforming PLM for the Economic Recovery -- March 30, 2011 at 11:00 am ET
Speakers: Chip Perry and Jim Brown


We will be continually adding to the line-up and future sessions will include corporate community member user presentations, as well as, best practice examples and strategic insight on PLM-related topics.

As always, if you'd like to share your story, please get in touch. Everyone wants to learn from companies that are achieving real world successes... that's what ACE is for... collaboration for results.

FEATURED SOLUTION - ShapeSpace 3D Geometric Search for Aras
At the end of the year ShapeSpace released a connector for their 3D Geometric Search to Aras.

This brings a powerful new ability to visually search and select parts using a graphical interface instead of your typical list metaphor. It uses geometric indexing and retrieval algorithms with an adaptive visualization browser for an intuitive interface.

It's important to note, this is not just a hot technology that's really cool. Using 3D geometric search can help your company improve part reuse, consolidate purchased parts, and reduce material spend by reducing parts count (white paper). It basically means that anyone can visually locate parts fast. GraphicSpeak, the News and Commentary site for CAD Professionals, did a good write up on it by Randall Newton titled ShapeSpace brings 3D geometric search to open source Aras PLM.

If your company has been considering the Geolus 3D Search engine for Teamcenter, you might want to take a serious look at this solution.

The 3D geometric search connector for Aras Innovator was implemented by ShapeSpace and AESSiS in the UK, they can also help you evaluate and implement the solution if you're interested in it. Watch the Demo video and get more info
