So, the end of the year is fast approaching and it seems like everyone's trying to 'make up for lost time' that got away earlier in the year... If you're company needs to show PLM project results by the end of the year, the clock is ticking... the good news is that with Aras your company can get results fast.


FEATURED SOLUTION - Rialto CATIA V5 integration for Aras Innovator
This month has a really exciting solution featured. It's called Rialto and it's a freely available CAD integration for CATIA V5 to Aras.

Ecole Centrale Paris, one of the oldest and most prestigious engineering schools in France, has been working on the integration technology for several years between CATIA and PTC Windchill. Over the summer they enabled for Aras Innovator as well.

The initiative is progressing quite quickly and they are continually adding new features and use cases.

There are videos and documentation available and of course the CATIA V5 integration download.

Also, don't forget... that there's a complete suite of full featured deep CAD integrations that's commercial availably for Aras including CATIA V5 as well as NX, SolidWorks, Pro/E, AutoCAD, OrCAD, PADS, and many other packages.

Rialto happens to be the best freely available CATIA integration we've seen to date, and we think it's important for everyone to know about all the options.

It's also important to note that Rialto is a joint public- private initiative between the Ecole Centrale Paris and corporate sponsors. If your company would like to get involved, contact Professor Pascal Morenton - Email: pascal dot morenton at ecp dot fr

RECORDED WEBINAR - Open Source PLM: Advanced Enterprise Functionality, No PLM Licenses
Earlier this week we sponsored and participated in a webinar on ConnetPress which covered Open Source PLM, how the Aras approach works, and what the benefits are for companies.

Jonathan Scott from Razorleaf, which is an independent PLM consulting services company with expertise on a variety of PLM systems, was the presenter. He covered a series of topics and also interviewed me for some additional details.

A recording of the webcast has been posted which you can watch or share with others. It includes:

  • Top 5 misconceptions about open source PLM
  • How open source PLM enables an enterprise- wide strategy
  • Different ways to take advantage of open source PLM depending on your company's situation and strategy
It's available for free on the different CAD community sites (Note: logon / registration is needed to watch).
