Variant Management is Getting Harder
Today’s product complexities driven by pervasive connectivity, increasing software content, and a high degree of customization force OEMs to consider the basic tenants of variability management much earlier in the product lifecycle. These are cases where variability within a product platform is explored and established way before 3D CAD structures are designed or BOM structures with part #s must be considered. Aras platform provides services and application to mange product platform variability and maximize reuse of common elements in any design representation, across all design stages, and as part of the PLM platform managed 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.
