Read this eBook, to learn how to improve your service organization using digital twins.

Digital Thread: Are You Progressing?

CIMdata research shows companies continue to struggle to achieve success in their digital thread projects. Successful digital transformations need to address people, process, and technology.  Learn how a the Aras PLM Platform's low-code approach and web services architecture enables agile development, easy silo connection, app development, and business process evolution, to properly support digital thread creation and maintenance.

freedom productdata

More freedom for your product data! – moving from a document-centric to data-centric process for the First Article Inspection (FAI) design verification activity.

Data hidden in documents has several disadvantages. Data is redundantly entered in different files which may lead to inconsistencies, corrective actions and additional data processing time and cost. It lacks connections to other data and therefore lacks traceability.

In this webinar we will show a real-life example of how we transformed a document-based First Article Inspection (FAI) process to an integrated, data-centric process for one of our customers. We will show the configured FAI solution on top of our Product Engineering application and how we achieved this through the Aras Innovator low code modeling engine.

ERP-Migration nutzen

Bei Abkündigung ihrer bestehenden lokalen ERP-Installation sind aktuell viele Unternehmen gezwungen, auf eine neue, mitunter Cloud-basierte Plattform zu migrieren. Der Wechsel bietet die Chance, das Zusammenspiel zwischen ERP und PLM neu zu definieren. Doch dazu benötigen sie eine flexible PLM-Plattform.


Companies transforming to Product as a Service business models, or actively supporting Field Service engagements with their customers, typically have issues on finding the right information related to the products they need to support. Success begins with the creation and sustainability of individual product configurations as they change over their lifecycle. The configuration of each asset being operated at a customer site, along with critical information that relates to that specific asset, is essential for the upkeep of these assets.  Failure to maintain accurate configurations and information often results in extended downtime and service outages, because too much time is spent identifying the right people, parts, and service plans. As products’ features increase, so does the complexity of diagnosing the problem, providing a solution, and meeting customer expectations. An effective approach to the Digital Twin is key for future success in Product as a Service, and we want to show you how, with our latest release of Aras Digital Twin Core.

Forever Tomorrow

This webinar speaks to what needs to be taken into account to implement a successful and cost effective Digital Transformation, focusing on choosing the right PLM platform. Aras Low-code Platform is designed to support both a system-centric design intent and collaboration around BOM-centric design data. The platform’s modeling approach to data and processes guarantees compatibility with the future technologies and provides low-cost upgrades of all customizations.

Conquer the Challenges of Accelerating Product Complexity

Exploding product complexity often result in overdesigns, functional failures, release delays, or costly leaner expansion of workforce. These are not new, but product complexities are making them that much more impactful. And that is one of the primary drivers beyond digital engineering initiatives: evolve people, data, and processes to effectively manage these complexities. But do you know how reach these goals? What are the key success enablers? The key to understanding that is in understanding the role that Systems Thinking has in mitigating functional product failures.

Selection Process

Selection processes – why are they creating problems for customers?

This webinar speaks to the fact that companies get into trouble, simply because they have chosen the wrong system for their needs. This is a result of a broken selection process that has been designed – not to help the customer choose the right system for them – but to showcase a diligent process. And once the company finds out that they have chosen the wrong system, it is too late.

PLM selection processes today are often ineffective and should be redesigned. Not for our sake, but for the customers. Join Leon Lauritsen, Vice President Minerva Group, A/S, and Mark Reisig, Vice President of Product Marketing, Aras for an informative discussion.


In diesem Webinar stellen wir Anwendungsfälle und die Vorteile einer kombinierten PLM-ALM-Umgebung vor, die zu kürzeren Produktentwicklungszeiten, geringeren Risiken für späte Änderungen im Entwicklungsprozess sowie einem deutlich effizienteren Verifikationsprozess führen.

A Growing Company With Expanding Markets Where Customizing is the Norm

IWT has seen much growth in its product lines. Currently, the company manufactures 45 different models—60% of which are customized to some degree. Managing this wide product portfolio, with limited production quantities, and a high level of customization, meant that developing a controlled process for managing the release of engineering changes was imperative in order to achieve efficiency, reduce process time, and better coordinate production throughout the organization. With the high level of customization, combined with the requirement for strict compliance in heavily regulated industries, the need for a modern PLM platform became clear.

Driving Cloud

Digital Transformation initiatives are driving manufacturers to reconsider how PLM strategies can better support their digital backbone. How can a customized enterprise PLM system, which is integrated with many systems and tools, allow modifications to support digital transformation and product development without creating a dead-end customized solution? In this webinar, industry experts discuss the challenges manufacturers face today and how low-code solutions impact the cloud.

Product As A Service Business Modelle werden in den verschiedensten Industrien und Märkten immer relevanter. Was im Bereich der Telekommunikation mit gemieteten und subventionierten Endgeräten bereits seit Jahren Gang und gäbe ist, breitet sich - wie man am Beispiel von Flat-Rate-Leasing- und Carsharing-Modellen derzeit sehen kann - rasant auf andere Märkte und Industrien aus.

Unter anderem rückt dieser Trend Produktdaten in den strategischen Mittelpunkt der Unternehmen. Das Wissen über die Produkte im Feld und eine gute Integration von Informationen aus dem Laufenden Betrieb mit Daten aus der Produktentstehung versetzen Unternehmen zukünftig in die Lage nicht nur die Produkte selbst, sondern auch das Service Angebot durch die Produkte kontinuierlich zu validieren und zu verbessern.

Sehen Sie im Webinar „Der Digital Twin als Enabler neuer Businessmodelle“, wie aktuelle Trends die Anforderungen an PLM verändern und wie diese Anforderungen in Aras Innovator-Applikation „Digital Twin Core“ umgesetzt werden.

Tracking Across Lifecycle

Managing and communicating change is a core challenge for any company that makes products. It needs to be done in a clear, collaborative, and transparent manner, but, without a pervasive system of record, increasing complexity makes this process exponentially more difficult.
Throughout the manufacturing, supply chain, and service organizations, people need to understand the impact of change—what has changed, why it has changed, and make a determination that the product is still fit for service. In this demo we will show how Aras Innovator improves the change process to document the impacts of a proposed change reliably and clearly. We will also show how changes can be traced back from items in the field to reveal the decision-making process that led to those changes.

Product Complexites, Systems Thinking, and PLM Platforms

Digitalization of Engineering helps providers of next generation products to control accelerating product complexities. System-centric approach allows to see how sub-systems interact on a functional level which results in faster and less risky insertion of emerging technologies, quicker adoption of latest tools and effective system integration with sub-systems from supply chain. 

Chad Jackson, Chief Analyst and CEO of Process Insights, and Pawel Chadzynski, Senior Director Product Marketing at Aras, discuss the role Systems Thinking and PLM platforms have in managing product complexities.

data migration

Datenmigration hat sich als ein wesentlicher Pain-Point der PLM-Projekte erwiesen. Insbesondere in Ablösungs- und Neueinführungsprojekten steht man früher oder später vor der Herausforderung, Legacy-Daten im Zielsystem verfügbar zu machen. Sehr große Datenmengen, mangelnde Strukturinformationen, Duplikate, fehlende Metadaten und regulatorische Anforderungen sind nur eine Auswahl an Gründen, weshalb Migrationsprojekte zu den weniger beliebten Vorhaben gehören. In diesem Webinar möchten wir Ihnen anhand einer Auswahl von erfolgreichen Praxisbeispielen zeigen, wie Sie diesen Herausforderungen begegnen und ohne Ängste produktiv gehen können.


Stop Wasting Time

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. 

The Aras low-code industrial platform enables engineers to formally manage system models authored in tools like Cameo without limiting their creative freedom but with an ability to rely on formal configuration management when appropriate.

The CIO and The Digital Thread: Becoming a Trusted Partner in Digital Transformation

A digital thread is a critical tool used by many CIOs to both digitalize their organizations and to support their own shift to becoming a transformational CIO. A digital thread is the capability that allows teams across the enterprise to follow a product’s digital history and all its related digital assets—from the initial planning and analysis, through design, manufacturing, testing, and on to final sustainment and disposal phases.

Simulation Task Automation

The ever-expanding complexities of systems being designed increases the demand for robust and intelligent simulation that is automated, consistent, repeatable, and traceable. While current simulation algorithms are growing ever more powerful, there is a need to make them ever more pervasive across more teams in cross-disciplinary ways. The goal is to enable more simulation, reduce simulation bottlenecks, enable digital verification, and react quicker to changes in product definitions.

Role of a PLM

Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. ET

Ever increasing product complexity forces organizations to reimagine their approach to design—including new methodologies, design tools, and configuration management for every step of the lifecycle. This also must include the pivotal role of a PLM platform plays in enabling the traceability of requirements, management of systems models, simulation, and cross-discipline collaboration.

Traditionally, digital representation of designs started with physical designs and then leveraged PLM solutions to manage BOM-centric representations of products. But as products become systems, and systems become systems-of-systems, that is no longer sufficient. Digital representations must include the system-centric view of a product: parameterized requirements, systems architecture, variability in platforms, pervasive simulation, and virtual and physical validation and verification. That is the essence of the Digitalization of Engineering: enabling universal traceability of all relationships captured by the engineering V model across all design representations and variants—from concept to a serialized asset in the field.

Join Prof. Dr.-Ing Martin Eigner (GF), CEO and Senior Consultant at EIGNER Engineering Consult, and Mark Reisig, VP Product Marketing at Aras, for their live discussion of the role a PLM platform plays in Digitalization of Engineering.

Prof. Martin Eigner is one of the few experts in the world with a breadth of experience in development, implementation, research and teaching of product data usage and systems. His involvement with the PLM industry spans 45 years during which he has implemented over 900 customer-driven projects worldwide. Prof. Eigner’s latest book “Systems Lifecycle Management,” details the evolution of data management solutions from Product Data Management through Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) to Systems Lifecycle Management (SysLM).

Der Umstieg auf Cloud bzw. SaaS ist keine Option mehr, sondern vielmehr die zwingende Notwendigkeit! Sehen Sie in diesem Webinar, welche Vorteile die SaaS-basierte PLM-Plattform mit sich bringt und warum Sie sich für Aras Enterprise entscheiden sollten.

Raising the Bar for Product Quality

Having installed several different PLM systems over the years, Parata found themselves “stuck in the mud.” They were anxious not to repeat the current situation that they were in—saddled with an outdated system that was very costly to upgrade, fix bugs, and to align with their current business processes. Being a smaller company, they wanted the ability to configure the solution as their processes evolved and as they progressed in implementation and usage of the system.

cost management

Die zunehmende Bedeutung des Produkt-Kosten-Managements als Engineering Disziplin erfordert einen PLM-integrierten Ansatz.
Hohe Kosten durch späte Änderungen, steigender Wettbewerbsdruck und die Kostenkritikalität von Produkten innerhalb neuer Geschäftsmodelle machen das Kosten-Management zu einer voll integrierten Engineering Disziplin. Dies erfordert Concurrent Costing von der Anforderungsphase bis zur Wartung, Kostenbetrachtung bei Änderungen, Variantenmanagement Design-Entscheidungen sowie Möglichkeiten Kostenmodelle zu verschiedenen Zeitpunkten zu validieren und zu simulieren.

Erfahren Sie, wie Aras Ihrem Unternehmen dabei helfen kann, die 3D-Visualisierung zu demokratisieren und Hindernisse für die Lizenzierung, Schulung und Installation spezialisierter Software zu beseitigen.

Technical Documentation

Documents such as specifications, assembly instructions, parts lists, training materials, design reviews, and service bulletins all have one thing in common: your product. Managing them outside of PLM means their contents can easily fall behind changes made to the product, incurring significant time, effort, and risk of error when they must be manually updated and revised.

Aras Technical Documentation can structure the creation of many different kinds of product-related documents by connecting with data from all of the applications across the Aras Innovator platform. It automates data creation, pulling the latest product information into the customizable layout your teams need to work in—whatever type of document that is. And, it automates changes: as each linked piece of content is updated, stakeholders are notified and can accept the change or continue evolving the document. This quick and easy notification and synchronization accelerates their work and reduces the risk of inaccuracies.

PLM–A Critical Component of Digital Transformation

In this webinar, you will learn why those who are leading product efforts will be on the front lines in the transition to digital. We’ll delve into why innovation cannot fall to individuals but instead requires participation from throughout the enterprise ecosystem. To be successful, this collaboration will need to be efficient— and tap a discrete manufacturer’s often-overlooked precious resource—product information—whether in siloed systems internally, or not yet connected from a customer.

ACE 2021 SAIC Digital Sustainment

This session will focus on the connection of disparate data and disparate systems in an operations, maintenance, and sustainment environment (OM and S) environment to enable Digital Sustainment and deliver the optimized level of maintenance and maximized availability for an Enterprise.

As connected as we appear to be, most companies continue to struggle with effective collaboration. Decision chains are buried in email, functional silos limit access to data, and the data that defines products is scattered across various systems and hard drives. These disconnected decisions and isolated data make it difficult to trace the information that went into creating a single product. 

In this session, Aras will demonstrate how organizations can use the Aras platform to collaborate in a unified environment. You will see how a single digital thread of product information connects teams across the product lifecycle. While team members use applications purpose-built for their disciplines, these applications are built on a common platform, the data authored there is inherently connected, and can be easily traversed to enhance communication and collaboration as the product is developed.

Stan Przybylinski from CIMdata and Mark Reisig from Aras discuss the results of the survey and how the trends identified in the research will impact future SaaS PLM offerings. This webinar provides invaluable information to understand how SaaS solutions will enable the future of PLM.

Die Einführung von PLM-/Prozessen und -Funktionalitäten ist erfahrungsgemäß sehr unternehmensspezifisch und immer mit gewissen Unbekannten verbunden. Aras empfiehlt aus diesem Grund einen agilen Projektansatz, um mit vertretbarem Aufwand zu einem greifbaren Rahmen des Projektstarts zu gelangen, um schnell implementierte Konzepte zu validieren und um einen frühen Return des getätigten Invests zu erreichen.

Neue Anforderungen für mehr Funktionen und Konnektivität setzen veraltete Systeme aus den Bereichen Engineering, Fertigung und Qualität unter Druck. Denn diese Systeme wurden in der Vergangenheit nicht dafür programmiert, um den Kontext und die Verknüpfung über den gesamten Produktlebenszyklus hinweg zu garantieren. Heute aber wird die, für die sich schnell ändernden Kundenanforderungen, notwendige Zusammenarbeit von diesen Systemen nicht mehr unterstützt. Der Digital Thread ist die Antwort auf das Problem und ist gleichzeitig auch die Grundlage für künftiges Wachstum.

Access to 3D product data is critical to all members of a product team from inception to in-service operation.  However, many within this group lack the proper skill set and access to traditional Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software used to author this information.  Moreover, without the ability to link this information directly to the entire product lifecycle data, the broader collaboration effort can be hindered when decisions are made out of context. 

Aras’ Dynamic Product Navigation (DPN) enables viewing of lightweight 3D CAD geometry to any team member who has appropriate permissions using only a web browser. These product model views can be linked directly with associated requirements, specs, quality information, manufacturing data, etc. maintained within the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system.  DPN also empowers users to view scenes according to specified criteria regardless of the CAD hierarchy, and even supports viewing parts from various assemblies and CAD Systems together.

Produktentwicklungsteams – auch wenn Teammitglieder nicht im selben Unternehmen arbeiten – sollten in der Lage sein, auf einer Kollaborationsplattform zusammenzuarbeiten. Damit sich an gewisse Standards gehalten wird und die Mitarbeiter produktiver sind, ist ein Onboarding der externen Mitarbeiter notwendig. Speziell neue Partner und Zulieferer müssen in der Regel zunächst einen Evaluierungsprozess durchlaufen und eine vielzahl an Dokumente zur Verfügung stellen. Diese werden idealerweise direkt in der Collaboration Plattform hinterlegt.

Während der Onboarding Prozess bei vielen Firmen schon recht gut dokumentiert ist, ist ein Offboarding beim Projektende häufig ad hoc. Welche Zugriffe müssen gesperrt werden? Für welche Datenobjekte muss die Entwicklungshoheit ggf. wieder nach „intern“ umgestellt werden? Zumindest die kritischen Prozesse sollten automatisch ablaufen, was nur gelingen kann, wenn dies bereits beim Onboarding berücksichtigt wurde.

Ein weiterer wichtiger Baustein bei der Zusammenarbeit mit externen Partnern ist Visual Collaboration. Dieser Service in Aras Innovator bietet die schnellste und einfachste Möglichkeit, sicher über verschiedene Disziplinen, Standorte und Organisationen hinweg zusammenzuarbeiten. So können Teams sich effektiver über Produkte austauschen, Entscheidungen schneller treffen und Probleme schneller lösen.

Erfahren Sie, wie Sie mit einer Plattform Ihren gesamten Produktlebenszyklus kontrollieren.
