Raising the Bar for Product Quality in an Age of Ever-Increasing Product Complexity

June 11, 2020 - 11:00 a.m. EDT

As business increased and our products grew more complex, performing our quality inspections on paper became inefficient and unmanageable. Parata was unable to easily and accurately measure product quality. Paper inspections made reporting on defect data very difficult; inspection forms were often out-of-sync with design changes. More importantly, the teams could not react quickly enough to quality issues in production. The Aras platform allowed Parata to completely overhaul how they gather, track, and manage quality data. Now all of Parata's quality inspections are done in Aras. They have the ability to track defects to individual parts and can report on metrics in real time. After the first year Parata had over a 30% reduction in DPMO (Defects Per Million Opportunities). I will present how Parata replaced a system of paper check sheets with an Aras solution that is manageable, scalable, and ultimately improved the quality of their products.

Foundational PLM for University Students, Purdue Polytechnic Institute

June 18, 2020 - 11:00 a.m. EDT

In this webinar explore how the Purdue Polytechnic Institute’s Department of Computer Graphics Technology (CGT) Virtual Product Integration (VPI) major has integrated Product Data Management (PDM) into the curriculum by implementing Aras Innovator as a foundation. By infusing PDM as part of the classroom process, students are being prepared to enter the workforce with the fundamental understanding that CAD and PDM are not mutually exclusive. Combining classroom instruction with extra-curricular student project teams (SAE Competition Teams), Purdue is building a capable pipeline of students familiar with the concepts and application of PDM.

Seaspan Vancouver Shipyards’ Aras Journey – From Document Management System to Integrated Shipbuilding PLM Tool

June 23, 2020 - 11:00 a.m. EDT

This presentation will discuss the evolution of Seaspan’s Aras tool from a document management system to the central component of a fully integrated Product Lifecycle Management ecosystem. Chris Phillips, Manager, Engineering and Planning Business Technology Systems will discuss the methodology behind developing an organization-wide PLM roadmap, and the people, processes, and technology implemented (and planned) to achieve Seaspan’s roadmap. Topics to be covered during the presentation include:

  1. Seaspan Vancouver Shipyards current state and vision for PLM
  2. Processes implemented to maximize the effectiveness of PLM
  3. Training – how to get users and administrators to leverage PLM in the most effective way possible
  4. Governance – the importance of strong executive leadership
  5. Lessons Learned – what organizations can learn from Vancouver Shipyards’ PLM journey

Maximizing Value by Asserting Control Over Your Enterprise Digital Transformation

July 30, 2020 - 11:00 a.m. EDT

The next industrial revolution is upon us and organizations must transform to deliver value at the speed of relevance. As organizations evolve and transform themselves to leverage digital technologies, many experience barriers to entry and friction during implementation that inhibit success. Overcoming these obstacles requires a holistic enterprise transformation approach. Technology is part of the solution…but true success is found by identifying and executing radically different ways to do business by taking advantage of new techniques to achieve needed outcomes (and not simply making old processes faster).

Communication Through the Engineering Change Process

August 13, 2020 - 11:00 a.m. EDT

With every PLM having a different scope, scale and reach, an automated solution was desired to dynamically create workflows.  After reviewing the as-is manual process, a number of approaches were explored and prototyped driving to a final design, all facilitated through the agile methodology.

The result was a significant reduction in the manual setting up of e-mail communications and assignment of PLM workflow activities which created efficiencies and reduced errors.

Global Visibility to the Design and Manufacturing Process

September 24, 2020 - 11:00 a.m. EDT

Since 1907, Flexco strives to be a leader in belt conveyer productivity through superior customer commitment and product innovation. Flexco now with 11 locations on 6 continents and expansions into new markets, managing engineering and manufacturing product data around the world is challenging to say the least.

In order to bridge this gap between our US and global locations, Flexco is looking to improve its PLM system by providing global visibility to the design and manufacturing process.

Our vision of PLM for Flexco will be a global design specification as an EBOM with site specific MBOMs. PLM Accelerate and the MPP module will enable this vision through a single application. Engineering designs will be managed with a global ECO process. As designs are released, global sites will create local process plans and MBOM’s for local manufacturing. MBOMS will integrate directly to our ERP system.
