Program Management

Organizations leverage projects to manage temporary work that ultimately achieves a result, driving down costs and increasing transparency. Project tools are needed to track and assign work, manage the expected schedule, map dependencies, and set milestones that ultimately communicate overall expectations to stakeholders.

Aras’ Program Management application provides a comprehensive project execution tool to assist with managing scope, time, resources, deliverables, and communication. Based on PMI principles, project managers can calculate critical path, automate notifications, standardize projects using templates, and manage a project throughout its lifecycle.

This demonstration will review Program Management’s capabilities and highlight data integration throughout the web client.

You will learn how to create a project from a template, assign tasks, calculate the critical path, and execute a project based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge principles.

Crystal Brandl is the Program Management Product Manager, dedicated to delivering a purposeful project management execution tool.

The Aras Flexible PLM Platform

The Aras Product Innovation Platform has the flexibility that you need to make the Aras Innovator PLM solution match your exact business needs. With other PLM systems, changes to the default behaviors and data model are either complicated or flat out not possible.

Changing the out-of-the-box forms, permissions, lifecycles, workflows, and even modeling a specific application from the ground up is within your reach with no to minimal need to write code. You will see how easy it can be to modify the Aras Innovator system.

If changing our PLM system has seemed harder than an Act of Congress, you’ll want to attend this demo series that shows real-time modifications the Aras Innovator system using the Administrator capabilities of the web client.

Join Lisa Costa, Community Technical Manager at Aras, to see how easy it is to add fields to a form, modify a workflow, make a minor change to the OOTB data model by creating a new relationship between existing ItemTypes, and also make a more significant change to the data model by creating a new ItemType with associated forms, lifecycles, etc.

Achieve quoted profitability, accelerate the sales cycle, and reduce risk for build-to-order (BTO) and engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers. Build-to-order (BTO) and engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers quote products that are comprised of both released and “yet to be designed” parts. Traditional ERP solutions lack the ability to adequately treat unreleased parts through common sales processes that often involve engineering,

Live Aras Demo - Multi Lingual & Localization in Aras Innovator

Global organizations are increasingly relying on a PLM Platform to coordinate development of complex, connected products. To ensure high user acceptance the PLM system must support multiple languages. This affects the PLM system’s UI and can also affect textual data managed in the PLM system.

During this 30-minute demonstration, you will learn about the mechanisms in the Aras PLM Platform that drive multi language behavior.

This demonstration will highlight:

  • Installation of a language pack
  • Start Aras client with new language
  • Browser settings to switch to different language
  • Enter multi-language text into text fields

Live Aras Demo - Breaking Down Barriers with Aras Visual Collaboration

Summary:

Legacy PLM systems have long struggled to provide a secure, connected, collaborative environment for promoting efficient product development among widely dispersed participants. Files created by specialist authoring tools (like MCAD/ECAD) are not easily accessible to other team members, and there are no easy ways to securely share comments in context.

Aras Visual Collaboration, a core capability in the Aras PLM Platform, breaks down communication barriers, allowing you to easily view and comment on parts and documents, providing security, control, and context to your product development discussions. Aras Visual Collaboration provides everyone from engineering, manufacturing, quality, and suppliers the ability to communicate more effectively, make decisions quickly, and solve problems faster.

During this 30-minute demonstration you will learn how Aras Visual Collaboration is a key component in enabling your organization to adopt a true Digital Twin/Digital Thread methodology, streamlining your Product Development process in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.

Join Aras Solutions Consultant, Gary Wilmot, to see how Visual Collaboration enables multiple participants to communicate securely and effectively to quickly identify and solve real-world issues. Gary has worked in the PLM Industry for over 20 years, helping organizations of all types and sizes improve their Product Development processes. This demonstration will highlight:

  • Seamless viewing of multiple file formats with no installs or plugins
  • Secure in-context mark-up viewables and comments
  • Controlling discussion visibility and participation using the Aras Innovator security model
  • Support for mobile platforms

Technical Documentation with the Aras PLM Platform

The authoring of technical publications too often takes place in isolation from product development, which can result in significant rework if incorrect product info is used or if engineering changes occur late in the development process. With Aras Technical Documentation, companies benefit from integrated and automated documentation tools to ensure content can be developed in less time and with higher accuracy. The demonstration will be led by Kevin Richard, Product Manager at Aras. Kevin has 25 years of experience in Software Engineering, Logistics, 3D Visualization, Simulation, and Information Architecture.

Critical tasks like engineering changes function best when team members can view and discuss the proposal before making decisions.

But files created by specialist authoring tools (like MCAD/ECAD) are not generally accessible to other team members, and there are no easy ways to securely share comments in context.

Live Webinar: Weaving Your Organization’s Digital Thread

The concept of the “digital thread” is gaining traction—the idea of connecting assets such as parts, CAD models, documents, process plans and service manuals throughout an organization. However, legacy PDM suites can make it impossible to create and maintain a digital thread, due to their fragmented architecture.

Closing the Loop - Quality Management with Aras PLM Platform

With increasing product complexity and shortening development cycles, ensuring product quality and regulatory compliance can be challenging for companies focused on fast innovation. However, many business use disconnected systems and spreadsheets for managing quality. The result of this approach is process gaps leading to a growing number of product recalls, damage to brands and potential liability.

How Built-To-Order (BTO) Businesses Can Drive Revenue, Reduce Risk, and Accelerate Quoting Cycles

How Built-To-Order (BTO) Businesses Can Drive Revenue, Reduce Risk, and Accelerate Quoting Cycles

BTO and ETO manufacturers quote product(s) that are comprised of both released and “yet to be designed” parts. Traditional ERP solutions lack the ability to adequately treat unreleased parts through such process disciplines as engineering, estimating, tooling and manufacturing phases. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a class of software that is uniquely qualified to support these pre-release processes but has typically not been pushed to support the quoting cycle. This session shows how companies are benefiting by leveraging PLM to field quotes, treat unreleased parts, collect the needed quoting information and even develop “proforma P&L” to track the quoted profit margin.

System Engineering Approach to Product Development with a Product Innovation Platform

Manufacturers across many industries are struggling to manage the increasing complexity of smart, connected products. Currently, systems engineering teams and their MBSE tools are isolated from the rest of the engineering organization. In addition, there is no linkage between the RFLP elements and discipline-specific hardware and software parts and assemblies – making it difficult to support collaboration, design review and approvals, change management, and verification and validation.
