INDUSTRY NEWS: National Electric Vehicle Selects Aras as PLM Backbone

 

You may have heard recently that National Electric Vehicle Sweden (Nevs) chose Aras Innovator as their global PLM backbone. 

 

As their name implies, Nevs develops electric vehicles and sustainable mobility 

services and they're based in Sweden. They will implement Aras to manage vehicle configurations and variants from the conceptual phase through product, development, manufacturing and service.

 

Nevs chose Aras based on:

  • Platform flexibility
  • Ease of customization and upgrades
  • Ability to securely integrate with existing systems

FEATURED WEBINAR: How will Global Enterprises Use the Cloud in PLM?

 

Most large companies have watched the Cloud hype with skepticism, particularly when it comes to PLM, yet global enterprises are finding an increasing range of scenarios where the Cloud makes sense in PLM. 


Join Jeffery Hojlo from IDC and Simon Floyd from Microsoft for this webinar as they discuss different scenarios for Cloud in PLM. 


This Webinar will cover:

  • Market dynamics affecting PLM requirements at global companies
  • Different conditions & circumstances in PLM where the Cloud works well
  • New approaches for using the Cloud in PLM to address these challenges

SUBSCRIBER TECH TIP: Creating Custom Item Keyed Names


When an ItemType is created in Aras Innovator, the administrator has the option to configure an item keyed name using the Keyed Name Order setting on any item property. Keyed names are used in system messages to refer to the Item ( e.g Part Number or Part Name). If no keyed name for an ItemType is specified, a unique, internal id is used.


For example, the standard Document ItemType uses the item_number property as the keyed name for each Document item created in the system:

 

So that when a Document is created, the item_number becomes the keyed name:

CIO REVIEW: Smart, Connected Products and PLM: The Role of OSLC

Of the more traditional PLM market leaders, IBM is one of the leading proponents of the OSLC work, which makes sense given the market position of DOORS, their requirements management tool, and the strength of their ALM portfolio.  They are actively promoting OSLC, and have a very visible project with Aras, a leading data and process management solution provider, on connecting configuration and engineering change management across PLM and ALM. http://aras.com/plm/003245

  

INDUSTRY NEWS: National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB Selects Aras as Global PLM Backbone and Minerva as Implementation Partner National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB (Nevs), a Swedish holding company that develops electric vehicles and sustainable mobility services, has selected Aras Innovator® as the global PLM backbone.
