Master the V-diagram with Aras

From connected and autonomous vehicles to industrial equipment, products are now systems of systems and require a system-level approach to product design.

Manufacturers need to transform their product processes to align disciplines and connect information. Start mastering the V-diagram with a combined systems engineering and PLM approach to tackle tomorrow’s complexity.

Systems Engineering with Aras PLM

Simplify the Complex

PLM with Aras provides a complete set of capabilities to manage the lifecycle of complex multi-disciplinary products from requirements, through development, manufacture and support.

Watch this short video to see a Proof of Concept that integrates Aras with IBM’s Rhapsody to enable a Systems Engineering approach.

Key Features

  • System level product design (functional blocks, model based)
  • System-based requirements management
  • Management of multi-disciplinary deliverables for hardware and software development and maintenance
  • Systems-based management of the evolving configuration of products and variants through the complete lifecycle
  • Multi-disciplinary modular technical documentation

PLM Platforms and System Models: A Key Combination

A PLM platform must manage all aspects of a product lifecycle—including System Models. Watch this presentation to learn about the considerable benefits of integrating the Aras PLM Platform with System Models and the key steps you should take.


  • Supports the rapid development of complex systems-based products
  • Provides a complete environment for multi-disciplinary collaboration
  • Provides schedule visibility and enforces best-practice ways of working to simplify management


PLM and PDM capabilities are powered by Aras Applications which are available on either an Open or Subscription basis.
