DESKTOP ENGINEERING: Microsoft Flexes its Agile Muscles

When Microsoft set out to consolidate and standardize its hardware groups on a core product development platform, its alternative approach - building on top of an open, cloud-based PLM platform and leveraging its expertise in agile methodologies - led to a global deployment completed in record time and packed with more functionality than its previous PLM systems. 

"We built the same capabilities or better in nine months than what it had taken us about seven or eight years to create with the previous systems," explained Boris Cononetz, senior business operations and program management manager at Microsoft. "We needed it yesterday and we couldn't afford to wait two years using a traditional... Read the full article: http://aras.com/plm/003286 

 

ARAS IN THE NEWS: Rethinking the Business of Engineering

Recently Peter Schroer, Aras Founder & CEO, was in an article on Manufacturing.net about the need to rethink the investments and processes that support the business of engineering. Here's an excerpt:

 "Companies are challenged to improve how they handle not just product development or "the science of engineering" but the business of engineering - delivering compliant, quality and profitable products.

"It's been my experience that over the last two decades of so, no matter the industry, product development investments related to Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) have been disproportional focused on the science of engineering. This means a focus on mechanical computer aided design (MCAD), simulation, 3D models and other areas.

"This has left little or no emphasis on cross-discipline workings - the myriad engineering processes necessary to create profitable products - in other words, the business of engineering.

"It's well understood that products are more sophisticated than ever and are growing in complexity as embedded software and electronics become integral, especially where Internet of Things-style capabilities are being introduced.

"What we hear from today's manufacturers is that many struggle to keep pace with..."
