Transforming-Gloabl-Supplier-Collaboration-while-Securing-your-IP
Two major trends—increasing product complexity and the growing role of the supply chain in design and manufacturing― have been playing out in manufacturing companies across all industries. The convergence of these trends has created a significant challenge for design collaboration with outsourced manufacturing partners―impacting productivity and operational excellence every day. 

Businesses will need to invest in upgrading their current technology to meet these new realities. Regardless of the approach, in order to make these investments reflect a positive return on their investment (ROI), the solution will need to consider the business processes, volume and location of users, technical landscape and security of the data. Watch this presentation to learn how you can transform your global supplier collaboration while securing your IP.

White Papers

White paper: Blurring the Line: Integrating Simulation and Design in PLM
Designing multidisciplinary systems relies on the simulation and testing of rapidly-evolving product definitions from the earliest concept stages through maintenance in the field.
It is no secret that companies are grappling with threats to their intellectual property (IP) data on a daily basis. Predictably, governments are creating new regulations and guidelines to respond to these risks.
Digital Thread Global
The digital age is pressuring organizations to innovate and operate more efficiently to avoid disruption. Leading manufacturers recognize the need to transform their technology and processes to fully harness product data across the enterprise and across the product lifecycle. What’s clear is that they are unsure where to start.
sys-eng-part1
The accelerating pace of change and complexity in the engineering of new products is no surprise to any engineering organization—and the high-level goals largely remain the same: pursue innovation, decrease cycle time and cost, while improving product quality.
sys-eng-part2
In Part I, we examined how developing a complimentary approach that capitalizes on the specific strengths of both Systems Engineering and Product Lifecycle Management systems can be the key to addressing the entire product development lifecycle. This second part focuses on how the holistic management of engineering information and processes, across the entire engineering lifecycle, can bring immediate benefits and also provide a foundation for continuous improvement - perhaps even transformation - of engineering.
Unlock Simulation's Value
The benefits and rationale for broader use of simulation for early design validation and reduced reliance on physical prototypes are well documented and an opportunity that manufacturers must pursue for both pragmatic and competitive reasons. As product complexity increases and businesses seek opportunities for growth, simulation moves to the forefront for strategic capabilities around the Digital Twin, for predictive maintenance and closed-loop development, as well as additive manufacturing, and generative design.
In the face of increasing product complexity, learn about a broader PLM vision that meets the challenges of today's Business of Engineering.
IDC researchers share opportunities and challenges of deploying different product life-cycle management (PLM) scenarios in the cloud. Included are specific approaches that the enterprise is wise to consider for PLM in the cloud.

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 rapidly growing complexity of products presents a significant challenge for manufacturers that are competing to bring the latest, most sophisticated, and connected products to market. This level of complexity has also introduced the need to take a systems level approach. Collaborating across disciplines—mechanical, electronic, and software—creating systems of systems. This eBook explores five concepts that will help engineering leads develop system-centric design processes, align teams, master product complexity, and drive innovation.

The word “visionary,” is often used to describe those who imagined a future that the rest of us didn’t foresee. At Aras, we often think of them as resilient thinkers. Discover why resilient thinkers need a resilient platform and the three key characteristics it must have in order to meet tomorrow’s as yet unknown challenges.
