Aras®, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, and Aras partner Elysium, a leading global provider of data translation software, today announced the Elysium xPDM for Aras connector solution, an integration for data exchange between Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and the Aras Innovator PLM platform.

Businesses are increasingly choosing to combine new platforms with existing systems to manage product information across the lifecycle and the extended enterprise. Design data from CAD must be connected with engineering business processes across product development, manufacturing, quality, suppliers and field service. Many manufacturers companies are selecting the best suited CAD, PDM and PLM platforms for each purpose and connecting them.

“The new connector solution from Elysium fits perfectly with our PLM platform strategy to address the ‘no file’ world of CAD systems like CATIA V6 by providing global companies with a seamless way to integrate to the 3DEXPERIENCE environment,” said Doug Macdonald, Product Marketing Director at Aras. “Having the ability to bring MCAD data from multiple systems together with ECAD designs, software and firmware at the product’s system-level configuration is critical to coordinate development, achieve quality and meet deadlines.”

The xPDM connector enables data to flow securely using the open standards-based web services APIs in Aras and the XPDM infrastructure in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
