Extend Digital Thread to the Field
Manufacturers must continuously innovate next-generation products and offer the flexibility of capacity-as-a-service offerings. As a result, they need to transform how they develop products and plan to service them in the field. Connecting PLM to MRO provides a path to achieve both goals with a closed loop between product development and field data.
Owner-Operators want to improve how they maintain complex products in order to maximize uptime and profitability. As a result, they want to gain control over product designs to optimize how they service and replace components. Adding PLM functionality enables them to bring product engineering to their maintenance best practices.
Aras Impresa MRO brings together PLM and MRO on a single, modern platform that extends the Digital Thread to the field and provides the foundation for Digital Twin.
