ARAS TRAINING: Upcoming Sessions

We will be at a ton of events/conferences this September... if you are working on your PLM strategy and need more detailed information about Aras catch up with us at one of them... or if you somehow miss us, you can of course get in touch with an Aras certified partner or contact us directly.


CIMDATA: Extending the Digital Thread with Integrated Manufacturing Process Planning

We recently announced the availability of the Aras Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP) application. Like everything we do the new application is built on our flexible, scalable and upgradeable PLM platform which provides direct EBOM-to-MBOM translation and makes the MBOM, process plan and work instruction all part of configuration & change management.

Using Aras MPP, global product teams can concurrently define manufacturing processes at multiple plants and bridge the gap between engineering and manufacturing. They can eliminate time-consuming manual processes and costly EBOM/MBOM conflicts, as well as improve efficiency by synchronizing process plans, MBOMs and work instructions.

Check out the CIMdata commentary Extending the digital thread with Integrated Manufacturing Process Planning


Manufacturing Process Planning Functionality Highlights:

  • Manufacturing process plans, work instructions and MBOM are interdependent & automatically synchronized as changes occur
  • Version controlled process plans detail operation, work cells, equipment & tooling, parts consumed, resources, utilized, skills, documents referenced, ect.
  • MBOM derived from EBOM with automatic reconciliation
  • Change control workflows with impact analysis and effectivity
  • Plant-specific MBOMs and process plans

ACE 2016 EUROPE: Registration Now Open

Registration is now open for our 7th annual ACE Europe conference. Starting November 8th, industry and technology leaders will come together in Berlin Germany to connect and collaborate on strategies that address the growing complexity in global product development, systems engineering, manufacturing and the supply chain.

The ACE global series offers the perfect open learning environment for everyone, from companies expanding their Aras deployment, to businesses that are just starting a PLM initiative or replacing a legacy PDM system.

Agenda Topics Include:

  • Systems Engineering and MBSE in conjunction with PLM
  • ALM / PLM Integration
  • Product Development and Supply Chain Collaboration
  • Integrated Technical Publications
  • And More!

ACE 2016 Europe Details:

Date: November 8 - 9

Location: Berlin, Germany

Cost: Free to Attend - Registration is required

Agenda and Free Registration: /ace2016europe


FEATURED VIDEO: Aras Unconferenced

At the last Aras Community Event (ACE 2016) in the US we had an unconferenced session where ACE attendees were able to ask any question and voice any opinions they wanted. Peter Schroer, Aras CEO & Rob McAveney, Aras Chief Architect, fielded the questions "in the round." Nothing was off limits and everything was fair game!

TECH TIP: Using Variables in an E-Mail Message with Query String

This cool little example shows how to use parameters in an E-Mail Message Query String to populate variables in both the body of the message as well as the subject line when the message is generated.

For this example, an ECR is created and a PR (Problem Report) is attached to the ECR. The body of the letter when sent from a workflow notification will indicate the attached PR number and title.

To use the parameters in the Query String of the E-Mail Message requires some knowledge of XPath as well as the XSLT language which are assumed in this example. You should also have a working knowledge of our Adaptive Markup Language (AML) to retrieve the information shown.

In order to access the item_number and title properties of the PR item requires retrieving the ECR PR relationship for the current ECR. This can be done using the following Query String statement:

<Item type="ECR PR" action="get">
<source_id>${Item/@id}</source_id>
<related_id>
<Item type="PR" action="get"/>
</related_id>
</Item>

MANUFACTURING TOMORROW: Aras Announces PLM Platform-based Application for Manufacturing Process Planning

New capabilities bring together the Manufacturing Process Plan, Work Instructions and MBOM (Manufacturing Bill of Materials) making them interdependent and automatically synchronized as changes occur. This innovation enables direct EBOM (Engineering BOM) to MBOM translation bridging the gap enterprises have and creating the process foundation necessary for Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet initiatives. http://aras.com/plm/003321

DEKTOP ENGINEERING: Aras & Zuken Partner

Aras has partnered with Zuken. The collaboration will connect Zuken's DS-2 solution for engineering data management with Aras' PLM platform. Together, they will take a new approach which better integrates MCAD and ECAD concurrent design workflows at the enterprise level for global companies with complex mechatronic environments and systems engineering requirements http://aras.com/plm/003323

SME: Airbus Creates a 'Greenhouse' for Digital Transformation

To say the business is booming at Airbus would be an understatement. The global aircraft maker, which supplies half the world's commercial aircraft, currently has booking for new jet airplanes in its commercial division that total more than one trillion Euro, pushing out new orders to a 10-year waiting period.

NEW BLOG: Asked and Answered: What's the Value of a Flexible Approach to PLM?

Ask three product development teams from three different companies how they handle product lifecycle management and you're likely get three distinct answers. So that's why when it comes to selecting a PLM or PDM system, powerful, out-of-the-box capabilities are important to get implementation started quickly and maximize the value delivered. Yet just as important is system flexibility.
