Managing Configurations is Complex
Managing these differences, tracking the requirements, conveying it to the manufacturing and support teams, adds a whole level of complexity into a manufacturing environment that is accustomed to making the same thing repeatedly.
Optimizing your Product Development Process with Collaborative Change Management
In Aras Innovator, product change histories are automatically captured and recorded as part of the product development, further building out the product’s digital thread.
Getting the Most Out of Your Product Configurations with Effectivity
Effectivity services on the Aras Innovator platform enable managing effectivity on different product structures. Managing effectivity on the part BOM is the most common case, and the product engineering application incorporates effectivity as part of its comprehensive BOM configuration management capabilities. The most effective approach to manage the product data is to have a single, overloaded structure that consolidates the common content and identifies the differences by use of effectivity. Watch this demo to learn about effectivity management in Aras Innovator.

Managing Systems Variability with the Aras Platform
Engineers waste a lot of time repetitively re-discovering and re-analyzing issues that were already addressed before. And yet resolved system model instances don’t persist as managed configurations. Formal management of system variability is key to tracing of what was done and understanding how it can be reused.
Bill of Materials
Bringing complex products to market means collaboratively managing BOMs for mechanical/electrical components and embedded software. BOM management with Aras helps connect and manage multiple sources of information in a single database so the right data gets to the right people.
Key Systems explains how Aras improved their Change Process to reduce time to market, increase stakeholder collaboration, and understand the impacts of each proposed change.
