NEWS - Aras Rolled Out Across 21 International Sites by Freudenberg
This month Desktop Engineering magazine reported on the global PLM roll out of Aras at Freudenberg Dichtungs-und Schwingungstechnik [FDS].

Headquartered in Germany, Freudenberg is a leading provider of industrial technology to the commercial and consumer markets with overall revenues of 5.3 billion euro [$7.7 billion] and over 9,000 employees.

Freudenberg has now standardized on Aras for global PLM for 21 international sites across Europe. The deployment of Aras gives Freudenberg DS a standardized multi-national process for product development that incorporates Advanced Product Quality Planning, also known as APQP.

News of this active corporate community member's success to date is outstanding. Sharing the stories of how your company has achieved business goals using Aras is a valuable contribution to the community.

People want to understand what your company is doing and how your team approached best practice process automation and the implementation project.

Email me anytime with your info and let me know if you'd like to share your story at the next Aras Community Network event!

EVENTS - Aras Community Network in Asia
In December the Aras Community Network had two events in Taiwan organized by Broadway Consulting Services and sponsored by National Formosa University, Cardinal Tien College, and Microsoft. The sessions were conducted in Taipei and Taichung.

Over 80 people came to each session to learn about the enterprise open source solutions for PLM and how Aras is being applied to different business processes such as PLM in High Tech Electronics for global new product development and introduction (NPDI), and of particular interest was the session on the custom application of Aras as a comprehensive Food Traceability System that tracks ingredients at every step in the supply chain for quality and integrity.

Thanks to all the corporate community members who came out to learn and network. These types of events are how collaboration transforms from ideas to actions!

There's more on the events at our blog along with a photo provided by BCS as well as a write up with some more photos on the BCS site.

DEMO - Recording of PLM for Microsoft Dynamics
In December we conducted a Webcast Demonstration of the Aras PLM solution for Microsoft Dynamics.

It includes information on how PLM can extend your Microsoft ERP solution (AX, NAV, GP) to provide online engineering change workflows, CAD & EDA file management, engineering document & drawing management, browser-based supplier corrective actions (SCAR / CAPA), and much more.

This demo is an excellent overview for companies that need PLM capabilities and are using or considering one of the Microsoft Dynamics ERP systems. In the recorded demonstration you will:

  • Learn about the Aras PLM solution for Microsoft Dynamics
  • See the PLM software and the integration with Microsoft Dynamics ERP
  • Find out how your company can take advantage of the PLM for Dynamics from Aras
The webcast session was originally delivered by Dynamics Communities.
