SUBSCRIBER NOTICE - Expanded Subscriber Portal

This year we exposed the myInnovator support portal (powered by Aras Innovator) on the Aras.com website (which is also powered by Aras Innovator :-)

We simply extended the security model out to the website so you can now use your myInnovator password to access the new Subscriber Portal and get a ton of materials that you can't find anywhere else.

This exclusive subscriber benefit provides a single online area which combines access to Support, Issues, Message Notifications, Subscriber Feedback & Ideas, Special Extras and more.

Highlights Include

Online Roadmap - We've become the first (and only) PLM provider to openly publish our release plan in detail with issues listed... and Voting. Imagine that! You can actually indicate what you want. And because you're an Aras subscriber, your requests take priority.

My Recent Updated Issues - See a single view of recent updates to Issues you've submitted, their current status, any new developments and more. Get the personalized info you need to know about what's going on and how things are coming along.

Online Learning (New) - You asked, we delivered. Now, there's ONLINE training available with your Aras subscription. Courses are broken down into short interactive videos with hands-on exercises, written materials and quizzes to support each different people's learning style & pace.

KnowledgeBase (Improved) - Exclusive to Aras Subscribers, the KnowledgeBase (KB) was created to share know-how, examples and tools among Aras users. Browse and Search in a single location across product documentation, forum posts, wikis, sample code and online help, as well as KB-specific content not available in other places.

Just go to Aras.com and look for the tab called "Subscriber Portal".

Check it out and tell us what you think. And while you're there, let us know what else you'd like to see in the portal. Our intent is to help you and your team achieve global PLM success.

And if your company doesn't have an Aras Subscription, get in touch and we can help you get one.

Aras Blog - What Do Italians Know About PLM That You Don't
The Director of Engineering IT at the company in Italy claimed the modeling architecture from Aras is the first game changing technology he's seen in PLM, and like me, he's been around for a long time.

Aras Blog - Tech Tip Thursday: Using Relationship Forms
Relationship forms allow you to extend the amount of information captured about an item in a relationship tab. They are particularly useful when the main item has many property/fields, or if section properties need to be displayed by type using relationship tabs.

PLM alpha - Complex PLM Structure Multi-Views in Aras At Aras we recognized this and therefore have approached structure multi-views from a modeling perspective. The Aras modeling engine supports the creation of multiple views of structure including BOMs, requirements, manufacturing process, suppliers, quality, etc.

Minerva Blog - Adding Items to a Purchase Order directly from the BOM

FEATURED PROJECT - My Recently Visited Items

This month we're featuring a project that's great for ease-of-use and simple PLM navigation. It's called "My Recently Visited Items" and was put together by our own Rolf Laudenbach.

It's an add-on solution package that inserts a stack to track the most recently visited items per user login.

Rolf set the default as Documents, Parts, CAD Documents, Projects, Manufacturer Parts, Manufacturers, Engineering Changes and other useful items. It can also be easily configured to track additional Item Types... in other words, you can set it up to include ANYTHING in Aras (don't try that with your grandfather's PLM system).

On the left Navigation menu (what we call the Table Of Contents or TOC) under the "My Innovator" option you will see a new line called "My Recently Visited". Just click on it and you can immediately jump back to any item you've viewed during your session.

This is actually an update to this add-on solution which makes it more compact and delivers even faster performance.

It's really powerful and super simple. Way to go Rolf.

Check out the "My Recently Visited Items" project
