Aras Requirements Engineering

With ever increasing functional complexity, designers of the next-generation products need to manage and trace complex requirements across all engineering domains, and all design abstractions for all internal and external contributors. However, in many cases, requirements are handled using siloed, standalone tools which are disconnected from design artifacts. This brochure explores the current challenges and risks companies face when it comes to requirements management and traceability, and outlines the solutions and benefits offered by Aras' Requirements Engineering (RE) application.

Dynamic Change Management Increases Efficiency Across the Enterprise

Managing change can be challenging, particularly when convention requires a process to dynamically adapt to a design’s maturity level. As design maturity increases, changes become more impactful as a result of prior decisions on reuse, requirements flow down, and information already shared internally or with partners.

Dynamic Change Management automatically streamlines change requests, assessments, and orders in accordance with a design’s maturity. This ensures visibility into engineering status changes throughout the product lifecycle.

Untangling complexity

Information management in businesses today is complex, as there are many solution requirements across each organization. Unless you want to buy and implement multiple isolated niche solutions, you need a resilient platform with standard applications and the flexibility to create solutions for various business needs while still ensuring the connection of data.

In this webinar, we will showcase the power of the Aras platform and explore how the flexibility of the platform has enabled the creation of multiple solutions to solve different business needs. You will see a range of several different solutions that will give you an understanding of what’s possible with Aras.

plm-every-industry

Is PLM only for engineering and industrial enterprises? Does it necessarily have to be a physically tangible product to manage its lifecycle?

Even abstract products like financial offerings or non-CAD products like food and pharma products follow a similar lifecycle. Financial institutions or manufacturers need to eventually execute market research and gather requirements, think about product design to outsmart the competition, launch the product, take care of issues reported from market, and eventually think about end-of-life. Compliance and strict regulations require organizations to meticulously document.

Achieving all this, without losing efficiency across the enterprise, is a huge challenge. Moreover, the market dynamics make it necessary that the platform being used is flexible enough to stay updated for future scenarios - which aren't even thinkable yet.

How can a PLM platform help you get there? Learn more with a real case study!

Managing Product as a Service with the Digital Twin

Jamco case study

Aircraft parts manufacturer JAMCO Corporation has been using Aras Innovator to manage design data since 2013. It started as a means of managing data for multiple CADs, then expanded to include technical documents and workflows, cost, and project management. It’s "digital thread” continues to grow and maintains the traceability of design data across the product lifecycle.

freedom productdata

More freedom for your product data! – moving from a document-centric to data-centric process for the First Article Inspection (FAI) design verification activity.

Data hidden in documents has several disadvantages. Data is redundantly entered in different files which may lead to inconsistencies, corrective actions and additional data processing time and cost. It lacks connections to other data and therefore lacks traceability.

In this webinar we will show a real-life example of how we transformed a document-based First Article Inspection (FAI) process to an integrated, data-centric process for one of our customers. We will show the configured FAI solution on top of our Product Engineering application and how we achieved this through the Aras Innovator low code modeling engine.

ERP-Migration nutzen

With the discontinuation of their existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications, many companies are forced to migrate their installations to a new cloud-based platform. This change offers them the opportunity to rethink the interaction between ERP and product lifecycle management (PLM). To take advantage of this situation, they need a flexible PLM platform.

Improve

Companies transforming to Product as a Service business models, or actively supporting Field Service engagements with their customers, typically have issues on finding the right information related to the products they need to support. Success begins with the creation and sustainability of individual product configurations as they change over their lifecycle. The configuration of each asset being operated at a customer site, along with critical information that relates to that specific asset, is essential for the upkeep of these assets.  Failure to maintain accurate configurations and information often results in extended downtime and service outages, because too much time is spent identifying the right people, parts, and service plans. As products’ features increase, so does the complexity of diagnosing the problem, providing a solution, and meeting customer expectations. An effective approach to the Digital Twin is key for future success in Product as a Service, and we want to show you how, with our latest release of Aras Digital Twin Core.

Forever Tomorrow

This webinar speaks to what needs to be taken into account to implement a successful and cost effective Digital Transformation, focusing on choosing the right PLM platform. Aras Low-code Platform is designed to support both a system-centric design intent and collaboration around BOM-centric design data. The platform’s modeling approach to data and processes guarantees compatibility with the future technologies and provides low-cost upgrades of all customizations.

Conquer the Challenges of Accelerating Product Complexity

Exploding product complexity often result in overdesigns, functional failures, release delays, or costly leaner expansion of workforce. These are not new, but product complexities are making them that much more impactful. And that is one of the primary drivers beyond digital engineering initiatives: evolve people, data, and processes to effectively manage these complexities. But do you know how reach these goals? What are the key success enablers? The key to understanding that is in understanding the role that Systems Thinking has in mitigating functional product failures.

Selection Process

Selection processes – why are they creating problems for customers?

This webinar speaks to the fact that companies get into trouble, simply because they have chosen the wrong system for their needs. This is a result of a broken selection process that has been designed – not to help the customer choose the right system for them – but to showcase a diligent process. And once the company finds out that they have chosen the wrong system, it is too late.

PLM selection processes today are often ineffective and should be redesigned. Not for our sake, but for the customers. Join Leon Lauritsen, Vice President Minerva Group, A/S, and Mark Reisig, Vice President of Product Marketing, Aras for an informative discussion.

Radically Simplify

The path from a stakeholder requirement, to implementation specific requirements, is a complex one. It requires an understanding the business objectives, effective reuse of the existing solutions, and design space exploration with system models, simulations, and trade studies. See how Aras Low-Code Platform enables project and engineering teams to manage the this process with formal revision control and configuration management that includes traceability to all intermediate steps and design abstractions.

ROKI

With Aras Innovator, ROKI Co., Ltd. is able to centralize the management of CAD data, which differs for each of their customers.

This decision has enabled Aras to adopt a rapid, release cadence for Aras Innovator. Aras has now created a turnkey package of the Aras DevOps framework and has made it available to subscribers as part of the Enterprise SaaS offering. Read this case study to see how Aras benefits from the use of this of important product.

Tracking Across Lifecycle

Managing and communicating change is a core challenge for any company that makes products. It needs to be done in a clear, collaborative, and transparent manner, but, without a pervasive system of record, increasing complexity makes this process exponentially more difficult.
 
Throughout the manufacturing, supply chain, and service organizations, people need to understand the impact of change—what has changed, why it has changed, and make a determination that the product is still fit for service. In this demo we will show how Aras Innovator improves the change process to document the impacts of a proposed change reliably and clearly. We will also show how changes can be traced back from items in the field to reveal the decision-making process that led to those changes.

Product Complexites, Systems Thinking, and PLM Platforms

Digitalization of Engineering helps providers of next generation products to control accelerating product complexities. System-centric approach allows to see how sub-systems interact on a functional level which results in faster and less risky insertion of emerging technologies, quicker adoption of latest tools and effective system integration with sub-systems from supply chain. 

Chad Jackson, Chief Analyst and CEO of Process Insights, and Pawel Chadzynski, Senior Director Product Marketing at Aras, discuss the role Systems Thinking and PLM platforms have in managing product complexities.

Stop Wasting Time

Engineers waste a lot of time repetitively re-discovering and re-analyzing issues that were already addressed before. And yet resolved system model instances don’t persist as managed configurations. Formal management of system variability is key to tracing of what was done and understanding how it can be reused. 

The Aras low-code industrial platform enables engineers to formally manage system models authored in tools like Cameo without limiting their creative freedom but with an ability to rely on formal configuration management when appropriate.

The CIO and The Digital Thread: Becoming a Trusted Partner in Digital Transformation

A digital thread is a critical tool used by many CIOs to both digitalize their organizations and to support their own shift to becoming a transformational CIO. A digital thread is the capability that allows teams across the enterprise to follow a product’s digital history and all its related digital assets—from the initial planning and analysis, through design, manufacturing, testing, and on to final sustainment and disposal phases.

Simulation Task Automation

The ever-expanding complexities of systems being designed increases the demand for robust and intelligent simulation that is automated, consistent, repeatable, and traceable. While current simulation algorithms are growing ever more powerful, there is a need to make them ever more pervasive across more teams in cross-disciplinary ways. The goal is to enable more simulation, reduce simulation bottlenecks, enable digital verification, and react quicker to changes in product definitions.

Role of a PLM

Ever increasing product complexity forces organizations to reimagine their approach to design—including new methodologies, design tools, and configuration management for every step of the lifecycle. This also must include the pivotal role of a PLM platform plays in enabling the system-centric view of a product: traceability of requirements, management of systems models, simulation, and cross-discipline collaboration. 



Prof. Dr.-Ing Martin Eigner (GF), CEO and Senior Consultant at EIGNER Engineering Consult, and Mark Reisig, VP Product Marketing at Aras, discuss the role a PLM platform plays in Digitalization of Engineering.

Read this brochure to understand DevOps and how Aras DevOps will help your organization support a DevOps culture.

Raising the Bar for Product Quality

Having installed several different PLM systems over the years, Parata found themselves “stuck in the mud.” They were anxious not to repeat the current situation that they were in—saddled with an outdated system that was very costly to upgrade, fix bugs, and to align with their current business processes. Being a smaller company, they wanted the ability to configure the solution as their processes evolved and as they progressed in implementation and usage of the system.


Technical Documentation

Documents such as specifications, assembly instructions, parts lists, training materials, design reviews, and service bulletins all have one thing in common: your product. Managing them outside of PLM means their contents can easily fall behind changes made to the product, incurring significant time, effort, and risk of error when they must be manually updated and revised.

Aras Technical Documentation can structure the creation of many different kinds of product-related documents by connecting with data from all of the applications across the Aras Innovator platform. It automates data creation, pulling the latest product information into the customizable layout your teams need to work in—whatever type of document that is. And, it automates changes: as each linked piece of content is updated, stakeholders are notified and can accept the change or continue evolving the document. This quick and easy notification and synchronization accelerates their work and reduces the risk of inaccuracies.

PLM–A Critical Component of Digital Transformation

In this webinar, you will learn why those who are leading product efforts will be on the front lines in the transition to digital. We’ll delve into why innovation cannot fall to individuals but instead requires participation from throughout the enterprise ecosystem. To be successful, this collaboration will need to be efficient— and tap a discrete manufacturer’s often-overlooked precious resource—product information—whether in siloed systems internally, or not yet connected from a customer.

L'importance du PLM comme élément essentiel de la transformation numérique

Il est temps de prendre le contrôle de l'information au niveau de l'entreprise puisque la philosophie d'amélioration improvisée du passé ne peut plus soutenir les sociétés qui font face à des avancées technologiques fulgurantes accompagnées de changements quotidiens.
