We recently released the ACE 2017 agenda. The ACE 2017 agenda is now available and features sessions from leading global manufacturers like Microsoft, Huntington Ingalls, IBM and others, who will share their perspective on product complexity and the impact on the business of engineering.

Our annual conference brings together industry leaders and PLM experts worldwide to connect, collaborate and share best practices which can advance your PLM strategy.

ACE 2017 Agenda includes: 

  • Presentations from Microsoft, Huntington Ingalls, IBM, Lear and others
  • Focused business and technical sessions covering Global Product Development, Systems Engineering & MBSE, and ALM-PLM integration
  • Sessions on latest enhancements in Manufacturing Process Planning and Quality 
  • Networking sessions, peer collaboration, and a Town Hall-style "In the Round" discussion

 

Conference Details 

Date: March 21 - 23, 2017

FEATURED WHITEPAPER: MBSE and the Business of Engineering

 

You're not alone.  Companies across all industries are struggling to manage the ever-increasing complexity of today's modern products.  Our products have all become systems whose designs require a mix of hardware, electronics, software, and/or firmware.

 

In this new white paper "MBSE and the Business of Engineering" we discuss the way systems behavioral modeling can be integrated with downstream design practices to produce better, safer products. 

 

By integrating MBSE and PLM, product development organizations can overcome many of the current challenges of MBSE. MBSE-PLM integrations can allow global product teams to:

  • Communicate systems design intent and capture early feedback 
  • Provide a contextual environment for multiple system sub-models, allowing conflicts to be identified earlier
  • Create a complete digital twin with a digital thread that links requirements through design, manufacturing and service assets 
  • Connect MBSE models and the RFLP once formal, physical detail design begins

TECH TIP: Add a Column to the Configurable Workflow InBasket

 

Here's a super useful Tech Tip for anyone usine Workflow or Projects. 

 

Aras Innovator currently supports a configurable InBasket (MyInnovator -> My InBasket) that allows users to see and act on workflow assignments. The InBasket is preconfigured to show a base set of columns that provide information about the Item in process. As an administrator, you can make adjustments to the InBasket to add new columns to an assignment that show additional information. 

 

In this Tech Tip's example, users would like to see the value of the Priority property appear in assignments related to new Problem Reports (PRs) and/or Engineering Change Requests (ECRs).

FROM THE BLOG: Throwing Our CEO to the Wolves

Aras Founder and CEO Peter Schroer focused on these concepts during his keynote address at ACE 2016.
