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.
Aras’ Requirements Engineering Application
Aras® Requirements Management is a next generation requirements management solution embedded in enterprise PLM for systems engineering.
aras impresa mro brochure
As competition heats up from OEMs and Owner/Operators who want to take more share of maintenance dollars, third-party MRO providers are facing increased pressure to deliver effective, low cost maintenance services.
The Aras PLM Platform
Your digital transformation starts with a product innovation platform.
To effectively execute a digital transformation, a resilient product lifecycle management platform is critical. Product data volume and complexity are growing exponentially, and therefore must be addressed to ensure long-term success. A product innovation platform is a state-of-the-art way to create a resilient foundation that can support end-to-end product lifecycle requirements. Customers recognize Aras for its architecture, which has been based on web services from its inception.
Digital Thread Executive Summary
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.
oil-gas-strategy
The Oil and Gas industry is facing increasing levels of competition from new entrants such as shale and renewables (in the context of a historically low oil prices). If it is to achieve its stated goals of delivering higher and more predictable returns for shareholders, it must strengthen how it identifies the most competitive projects (and executes them) and drive down operating costs and improve asset performance.
Four Degrees Product Complexity
The world runs on increasingly complex systems. Organizations face critical challenges in designing, managing, and optimizing these systems for the rapidly changing products of tomorrow. Consumers’ connectivity demands are changing at an unprecedented rate, driving companies in every industry to build more complex and more interconnected products and services.
With Aras PLM’s market-leading flexibility coupled with the responsiveness of Agile deployment methods your PLM project will achieve greater success in a shorter timeframe. With active engagement, everyone from stakeholders to team members and end users are on the same page.

Challenges in PLM for Enterprise Organizations

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.

Although it had its roots as a simple, yet powerful graphical query mechanism for constructing custom queries, the Query Builder (and the Query Definitions created by it) has become the core mechanism for defining data structures used in many areas of Aras Innovator, including PLM Visualization and Configuration Tools. Learn about the Query Builder, hear about the enhancements in the past year, and see how it's used for defining Tree Grid and Graph Views, determining access rights, Part Effectivity, data migration, as well as our plans for its use in the near future.
Traditional siloed requirements solutions prevented the management of requirements as an integral part of the product development process and navigation of the underlying digital thread. Aras Requirements Engineering is the next generation of requirement management solutions, built on top of the Aras PLM platform. Basing Requirements Engineering on the Aras Innovator platform, provides the benefit of all the standard PLM services, such as Change and Configuration Management, Versioning, Standardized Workflow, Lifecycle, and Collaboration.
Aras Technical Documentation (Tech Docs) is a content authoring tool, fully integrated into Aras PLM that collectively provides component content management capability for topics-based, modular documentation. Tech Docs enables users from various disciplines to author, visualize, share, and publish information all within a central, controlled, and collaborative environment. If you're new to the application, discover Tech Docs and learn how this capability might be useful for your technical documentation needs. For those who haven't looked at Tech Docs in a while, see what has changed along with our plans for future enhancements.
Traditionally, disconnected data sources and difficulty finding the most relevant and up-to-date topic content has resulted in Technical Documentation not only requiring long lead-times, but also being error prone and expensive to produce. Aras Technical Documentation, built on the Aras Innovator platform, is a content authoring solution that takes a new approach to the creation of technical publications. Directly utilizing managed PLM content ensures the reduction of errors and reduced document creation times.
Aras Innovator 12 introduces an entirely new client experience with intuitive controls and improved navigational architecture to help you get work done faster. Learn about the user input that inspired the design, specific features included in version 12, and the approach Aras is taking to regularly include UX enhancements in future releases.
Learn about new features introduced in the Product Engineering application in Aras Innovator 12, such as effectivity management in BOM structures. We will provide an overview of the product roadmap, a demo of new features, and a preview of what we are building next.
