Customizing PLM Installation
Customizing PLM Installation

Deployment of Aras Innovator based PLM system (or any PLM system) can be challenging, because the functionality needed for the business processes of a particular company may not be available when the system is installed out-of-box. But because Aras Innovator is a highly customizable platform, it is possible to fine-tune its functionality to make the system cover 100% of company processes. Customizing the system to fully address specific needs is a challenge that most companies face during deployment of an Aras Innovator-based PLM system.

Automating Manufacturing Cost Estimation
Automating Manufacturing Cost Estimation

As engineering software modeling capabilities have matured, the focus of CAE software development has shifted to providing more advanced design optimization tools. Engineering calculations such as the optimization of stresses, loads, structure or flow, have become significantly more sophisticated. However, cost optimization has lagged. Existing solutions provide only post-process cost calculation. This means that cost determination and evaluation requires repeating the design process for each model. Such full-cycle iterations are both expensive and time-consuming.

Integrating External Development Team into Core R&D Organization

SOLIDWORKS has been providing SOLIDWORKS Workgroup PDM (PDMW) application for years, which was successfully serving needs of small-to-medium size engineering teams, with a relatively straightforward workflow and processes. For reaching bigger clients, with large amount of data, dozens of users accessing the data management application concurrently, as well as clients with offices distributed through multiple locations, a strategic decision was taken to introduce new generation of the data management application, which was called SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM (EPDM). The challenge was to be able to continue developing and maintain PDMW and at the same time allocate development resources for building SOLIDWORKS EPDM solution.

Compliance with Local Standards for Engineering Documentation

"Our clients recognized the power of SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM right after the first introduction, but it was clear that without the ability to automatically generate the engineering documentation according to the national standards (GOST), the clients would not be able to justify the investment in this software. The ability to sell SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM on our territory was subject to having an extension to the product that would enable creation of GOST-compliant documentation."
Evgeniy Korobchenko, General Manager, INTERSED Ukraine.
