Aras delivers a flexible, multi-factor approach to effectivity to enable manufacturers to manage complex effectivity at scale. The result is a massively simplified approach for engineering teams to specify and manage large numbers of variants and customized product configurations, collaborate on designs, and incorporate effectivity into the Digital Thread.


Effectivity services are natively configured inside of the Product Engineering application, and available for configuration into any other applications, standard or custom.

ALM Integration with Aras

Design Effectivity Relevant to Your Business

In this demo you will learn how to define effectivity variables relevant to your business, set effectivity conditions on relationships, and recursively resolve structures based on effectivity criteria to generate configured structures.


Aras simplifies how organizations manage effectivity by allowing it to be managed as part of a single data structure rather than multiple disconnected structures:

  • Apply data variants according to variables
  • Simplified data structure for complex parts
  • Variables drive data structure differences according to a modeling engine
  • Accurately track differences in serialized products
