SMART MANUFACTURING: Airbus Creates a 'Greenhouse' for Digital Transformation

SME's Aerospace & Defense Yearbook did an article discussing how Airbus is revolutionizing their business with innovative thinking in IT to modernize applications.  The approach that Airbus used was quite different than traditional 'tops down' IT implementations.

They invited people that had existing legacy systems in engineering, manufacturing, test, quality and the supply chain to modernize and enhance their applications in an IT support environment they called their 'Greenhouse.'  The initiative is bringing point systems from across the company onto a modern web platform (i.e. Aras) and into the PLM backbone for a much faster digital transformation.

In order to enable the Greenhouse, Airbus needed a flexible technology platform that included a lot of different types of PLM functionality.  After evaluating a number of PLM systems and other technologies, Airbus chose Aras as the best platform for the Greenhouse because it's flexible, scalable, and upgradeable and supports the Agile implementation process. 

Three Strategic Benefits from the Greenhouse:

  1. Enhanced productivity for engineering, manufacturing, test and quality so aircraft delivery can happen sooner than expected
  2. Airbus gained the most cost-efficient way to modernize systems in the fasted, most agile manner available
  3. Organization changes are taking place as a result of the ability to quickly bring innovative applications online

FEATURED ARTICLE: IoT's Impact on the Business of Engineering

The growth in product complexity, driven by the IoT (Internet of Things), is a trend shaping nearly all product industries.  Companies that respond with better integrated product development processes and systems will disrupt and dominate their markets.  

This new whitepaper, written by Perceptive Analysis, shares research revealing companies' readiness to manage the business of engineering and deliver the next generation of intelligent, connected products.

Check out this whitepaper to learn:

  • The main challenges of performing cross-discipline product development for IoT
  • The need to support digital transformation across the extended enterprise 
  • The reasons behind product company failures in IoT
  • How to address cross-discipline development and business processes in support of IoT with a modern platform

ARAS ANNOUNCEMENT: Huntington Ingalls Industries Selects Aras

We recently announced that Ingalls Shipbuilding, a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries - America's largest military shipbuilding company - chose Aras to support their complex engineering processes in the development of advanced warships for the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard. 

Aras will be used to streamline and standardize processes on a single platform and remove the bottlenecks that occur because of the many, existing stand-alone systems and databases. Over time Aras will be deployed to more than 3,000 members of Ingalls engineering and product development teams.

At Ingalls Shipbuilding, Aras will improve:

  • Configuration Management 
  • Concurrent Engineering
  • Rules Based Design & Planning
  • Model recovery
  • Process Improvements

CIMDATA: Airbus Creates a 'Greenhouse' for Digital Transformation

After an evaluation of multiple PLM, PDM, and CMS products, Airbus selected Aras as the enabling technology for the Greenhouse. Because the Aras platform is quite flexible, scalable, and upgradable it supports the Agile implementation process used and provides predictable ownership costs because custom applications can be upgraded easily. http://aras.com/plm/003343

 

DIGITAL ENGINEERING: Ingalls Shipbuilding Selects Aras

According to a company press release, Ingalls Shipbuilding selected Aras to streamline and standardize processes on a single platform and remove the bottlenecks that occur because of numerous stand-alone systems and databases. Aras will be used to better manage models, drawings, parts, technical specifications, structural planning and planning data. http://aras.com/plm/003344

 

TENLINKS: Aras Opens Registration for 7th Annual ACE Europe Conference 

The conference brings together industry and technology leaders to connect and collaborate on strategies to address the growing complexity in global product development, systems engineering, manufacturing, quality and the supply chain. http://aras.com/plm/003324

 

MCAD CAFÉ: Aras Announces PLM Platform-based Application for Manufacturing Process Planning  Aras MPP is built on a single platform that is designed to be flexible, scalable and upgradable, and provides connected capabilities for EBOM, configuration and change management, requirements, quality and other areas. In addition, Aras MPP is designed to integrate with existing ERP, MES and legacy PDM environments to provide these new process capabilities on top of existing enterprise systems. http://aras.com/plm/003345

 

NEW BLOG: Manufacturing Day Celebrates Innovator, Technology

The annual event is also a chance to recognize the important work of inspiring young people to pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering. Today's science, technology, engineering, and math graduates will power the next chapter of production and innovation, and harnessing their potential is an economic imperative. http://aras.com/plm/003346
