Dynamic supply chains need secure quick access to different aspects of product information at different stages in the lifecycle. The Aras mobile strategy is architected to make PLM ubiquitous to everyone so that decisions are based on what has been approved and what has not. This flexibility drives efficiencies across the product lifecycle supporting strategic operational decision making and product innovation.
Aras Flow is an integrated touch enabled mobile app ensuring continuous engagement when in meetings, on the factory floor or in the field. For the first time in PLM, change workflows are combined with discussion commenting, visualization and markup in a tablet format. That means anyone with appropriate permissions can approve proposed product changes, redline documents, sketch new ideas and capture and add photos, audio and video.
Aras Flow is fully integrated with Aras Innovator 11 and is available at no cost in the Windows Store for Windows 8.1 tablet devices such as the Microsoft Surface.
