ACE 2016 Japan: Reserve Your Seat

 

Registration for ACE Japan 2016 is now open and if it was anything like last year it is sure to be a great event!

 

Held in the heart of Tokyo, the exciting two day event will provide attendees with the opportunity to collaborate on PLM strategy and learn best practices from current Aras users. as well as, hear from PLM experts and see live demos of Aras Innovator. 

 

ACE 2016 Japan Details:

Date: September 1-2

Location: ANA Intercontinental Hotel Tokyo

Cost: Free to Attend - Registration is required 

Registration: http://aras.com/plm/003225

The theme of this year's ACE global series is "Innovation without Limitation," encouraging attendees to network, share innovative ideas and discover new approaches to power the business of engineering.

 

Last year spaces filled up fast and we had to put registrants on a wait list so be sure to reserve your spot today!

CIMDATA COMMENTARY: The Business of Engineering



Product complexity continues to increase exponentially forcing companies to look for a PLM system that has a greater focus on managing cross-discipline development through the end-to-end product lifecycle.

 

Many companies do not implement a complete end-to-end solution that achieves their PLM vision.  Others get stuck during implementation and end up with PDM silos that manage a subset of their data and processes.  Still more run out of time, money and support within the company before they are completed. 

 

When companies get to this point they have a decision to make - do they rip and replace their current system with a new one (which can be risky and disruptive)?  Or do they take a different approach?  CIMdata says "Companies need platforms and technologies that can fill the large process gaps by managing workflows and capturing data while connecting and coordinating existing data silos."

 

We realize these challenges and have designed Aras Innovator so it can be layered over and integrated with existing systems as well as replace them - which is a different approach than others. Our focus on options to enable the business of engineering represents a new alternative to yesterday's 'big box' all-or-nothing. 

 

"CIMdata sees Aras Innovator's process management capability as key to Magna Powertrain's and Xerox's success.  It enables coordination across disciplines including software, electronics, and mechanical hardware without data migration."

FEATURED ACE VIDEO: Microsoft Discusses Product Design Connecting IoT and Aras

 

At ACE Simon Floyd from Microsoft gave a presentation explaining how connecting PLM with Internet of Things data can improve product design.  Product development engineers are challenged with 'designing IoT into the product offering' from the start to deliver new experiences, capabilities and value propositions, and are trying to figure out how this can be accomplished.  

 

Simon says that one of the most difficult problems to solve for engineers is how to effectively integrate data streams from IoT enabled systems into the product development process and into the product lifecycle management platform so they can be made actionable and truly drive innovation. 

 

His presentation shows how together Aras on Microsoft Azure and the Azure IoT Suite can be combined to help address the challenges product developers face today.

INDUSTRY NEWS: Success at Microsoft and Airbus: Can Aras Battle Their Way into the PLM Big Leagues?


"Can Aras battle their way into the PLM big leagues?"  Of course we can.  "Aras has enjoyed a number of successes lately; the Airbus order of 30,000 seats last year is a good example, as is the Microsoft deal," explains Verdi Ogewell from Engineering.com.

 

He writes that the Aras PLM solution provides solid value whether used as the sole data and process management solution, like at Microsoft, or in conjunction with other existing implementations, like at Airbus.  

 

Airbus evaluated several different PLM platforms but chose Aras based on:

  • Open architecture with high-end data modeling "on the fly," bi development involved
  • Significant coverage of the expected scope
  • Upgrade services for customization included as part of the subscription
  • Easy integration and handling
  • Long term viability and total cost of ownership.

 

Microsoft on the other hand is great example of how Aras is used in a very different way, where the solution is the foundation of the development activities. Microsoft says the benefits include:

  • Adoption of global parts to drive re-use
  • Simplified user experience capabilities when accessing the system and product data
  • Fewer resource requirements in IT and the business
  • A much more agile platform that reduces the time required to onboard new groups

The concluding statement Engineering.com makes is, "Are onePDM and the big bet at Airbus enough to establish Aras as a "big league" player, and to eventually earn a place on the PLM 'Olympics' podium?" What do you think?

TECHNOLOGY EVALUATION CENTERS: IoT, Product Development, and the Business of Engineering

Disruptive forces like the Internet of Things transform the way global manufacturers manage "the business of engineering," specifically in the area of product development. Peter Schroer, CEO of Aras Corporation, calls for a PLM platform with a cross-discipline approach. http://aras.com/plm/003274

 

DESKTOPENGINEERING: National Electric Vehicle Sweden Selects Aras

"Nevs is both developing innovative electric vehicles and transforming their business processes at the same time," said Peter Schroer, CEO of Aras. "It's an opportunity to rethink the business of engineering starting with a clean sheet for the design and development of electric vehicles."

 

FROM THE BLOG: It's All About the Product

I am in the PLM business. But ultimately my job is to help YOU to make better products and services. Why? Simple, PLM is all about the PRODUCT. A product is much more than a cool assembly in your favorite CAD system. That's just the virtual manifestation of the as-designed product - we call that the eBOM. http://aras.com/plm/003273

 

ARAS NEWS: Toshiba Machine Selects Aras Innovator to Improve Design Processes, Enhance Product Quality, and Manage Global Product Information  Toshiba Machine will use Aras for bill of materials and related CAD data and document management for their made-to-order products. In the future, the company plans on using Aras to standardize global design processes and streamline international collaboration with ERP. http://aras.com/plm/003210
