In today’s highly competitive landscape, Medical Device companies are striving to be more efficient, bring more products to market faster, while at the same time, reducing costs. Medical Device companies operate in a complex supply chain that requires cooperating with many suppliers and partners. This does not make it easy to achieve the expected results. The challenges in handling products from concept, through launch to retirement are large and involve many processes across business units, extending to supply chain partners. Not only are the processes complex, but they typically involve multiple, isolated, independent databases, spreadsheets, and files.
Aras customers have been using the Aras platform to customize and enhance their applications for years. Session 3 will focus on our community and how they are leveraging the industrial low-code platform with Aras’ platform services to develop their own innovative solutions. The team will implement a third iteration of improvements to our newly built application. To conclude the session, we will utilize an Aras Community Project with our new application to expand its scope. These open source applications and packages enhance functionality, add features, or integrate with Aras Innovator. The applications are provided by any member of the Aras Community in a public forum.
As part of an innovation process, it is expected that new ideas will be proposed, and additional user stories created, to fine tune the target application. The ability to dynamically evaluate new proposals and identify the best business cases with the highest return on investment (ROI) is critical. In session 2, we will continue to highlight customer solutions as we build out our custom application. Watch the team add data visualization, content editing, and the ability to respond to user feedback to the MVP built in session 1, to drive incremental value from the application.
The high demand for new application development has surpassed the availability of qualified resources to meet the need. Many companies are turning to flexible, low-code development platforms to provide an alternative to traditional development strategies. In this first session, we will examine specific examples of how organizations leveraged Aras Innovator to create new functionality and met the needs of their users. You will also experience the rapid development environment as the team constructs an application using Aras Innovator.

With ever increasing product complexity, Requirements Management (RM) is critical to any complex system and/or product design. However, in many cases, requirements management is still done in siloed, standalone RM tools. And, the fact is, many design failures can be traced back to poor requirements management. This eBook explores the current challenges and risks companies face when it comes to requirements management and outlines the solutions and benefits offered by Aras’ Requirements Engineering (RE) application.

The value of managing architectural models in PLM goes well beyond the benefits of Configuration, Change and Lifecycle Management of the model itself. It includes the additional benefits of dynamic interaction, collaboration, reuse, and traceability between SysML and the various data models and structures already managed by PLM. These include, derivation of SysML model from PLM managed architectural structures, dynamic interaction with requirement structures, physical parts and assemblies, dynamic generation of SysML like diagrams in PLM and elements of PLE definitions between SysML and PLM
Watch this presentation to see the value of the integration between PLM and System Model demonstrated using Aras PLM platform and No Magic’s MagicDraw and how this can help you in implementation of a SysML driven MBSE methodology across the entire enterprise.
Product lifecycle management (PLM) is a core requirement for modern product development, particularly as organizations face increasing product complexity and shorter product lifecycles.
PLM is also the key integration point for advanced product development technology such as application lifecycle management (ALM) and Internet of Things (IoT) data, and enables traceability required for Digital Thread and Digital Twin.
An organization’s ability to innovate and pursue Digital Transformation is therefore significantly dictated by the level of PLM functionality and maturity across the organization.
This case study explores how Dräger, a leading international manufacturer of medical and security technology, employed Aras Innovator as part of their digital transformation efforts. The implementation of the Aras software in the cloud is expected to provide Dräger with more security, easier scalability, higher performance and IT cost savings.
