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.
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
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:
- Seaspan Vancouver Shipyards current state and vision for PLM
- Processes implemented to maximize the effectiveness of PLM
- Training – how to get users and administrators to leverage PLM in the most effective way possible
- Governance – the importance of strong executive leadership
- Lessons Learned – what organizations can learn from Vancouver Shipyards’ PLM journey
See how the simulation environment is created and reused, how it is related to items managed by the Aras Innovator PLM platform, and how that platform’s change and configuration management helps to establish and maintain traceability.
Dans cette démonstration, nous vous montrerons comment Aras Innovator vous permet de gérer la sécurité dans l'entreprise étendue.
This webinar will focus on how Aras is used at Sandia, how they have employed a bottom up, iterative approach to PLM, and how they’ve organized their development team to support and maintain multiple production instances, while performing their own upgrades.
You will see how systems model content is created, how it is related to items managed by the Aras PLM platform, and how that platform’s change and configuration management helps to establish and maintain traceability.
Cubic established One Cubic Engineering strategic goals focusing on unifying engineering across the enterprise. Goals included reducing time-to-market and production cost, enforcing structured, cross functional design reviews and aligning engineering tools used for design and product data management. Hear how PLM was envisioned to be a key enabler in achieving these goals and why Aras was chosen as the PLM platform offering both flexibility and adaptability in the implementation of a common solution to be deployed across a diverse group of business units.
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).
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.
This webinar will summarize a novel approach to making impacts at the user level in this somewhat hostile environment. The AFRL Digital Greenhouse project employs an agile methodology coupled with a ‘sandbox’ data environment to facilitate digital improvement for a variety of user stories.
We will walk through and demonstrate how Aras integrates directly with your existing SolidWorks and SOLIDWORKS PDM Implementation to leverage the data from your CAD and PDM for the entire organization.
Littelfuse, a global manufacturer of technologies in circuit protection, power control, and sensing, experienced considerable growth due to acquisitions and were challenged with the management of new product development projects (NPD) specifically related process and technology standardization. Littelfuse now has 186 NPD projects under Aras Project Management application control and has developed a multi-year PLM roadmap to add additional functionality including innovation, configuration, supplier, and manufacturing management.
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.
Having testing facilities across the world, presented a challenge for data management, global visibility and traceability at Maxion Wheel. They were further challenged by a wide variety of ways of working including paper based process or existing legacy systems differed facility to facility.
As part of their journey to find a global solution for their texting facilities, Maxion started testing laboratory digitalization, creating a Digital Lab solution on their existing Aras platform to manage their physical testing process from Test Request to the automated test result report.
US Commerce regulations require that all products be evaluated as weapons of as components of or required to build weapons. The outcome of this technical process is a determination of where a product may be exported and what licenses may be required. In this webinar, you’ll discover how SRC uses Innovator to ensure its compliance with International trade regulations and US law.
Nidec is the world’s #1 comprehensive motor manufacturer with over 100,000 employees worldwide serving a wide variety of industries including Water Treatment, Industrial Automation, Oil and Gas, Agriculture, Renewable Power and Automotive. This presentation will trace Nidec’s journey―replacing their legacy system (their single source of truth for detailed information on every motor built in North America from the 1990’s on) and moving to an Aras based custom solution. Today, Nidec uses Aras Innovator to keep track of over 50 thousand different motor type designs.
Learn how Aras’ single enterprise platform will provide an end to end to solution to support regulatory standards, configuration best practices and maintenance support for decades to come.
