Core PLM for Process Industries

The foundation of product lifecycle management (PLM) for the process (or recipe-based) manufacturing industries is product data management (PDM). It covers design and product-related aspects of PLM including management of material specifications, recipes, formulas, production processes, design tools, document management, and collaboration.

What Keeps EAM/CMMS Away From PLM?


Today, many assets are designed and manufactured with the help of product lifecycle management (PLM) tools and systems, which contain highly valuable product definition information for enterprise asset management (EAM) and computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) operations. That being said, if there is a way to tie the two systems (EAM and PLM) together, the result will be beneficial

Retrieving design information directly from an OEMs’ PLM servers also faces the same IP control issue, but it seems to be more manageable, since the OEM can have control over what product information can be disclosed and what procedures are used to authorize access to that information. When the capability of storing computer-aided design Read More

Selecting PLM Software Solutions Part 4 - Comparing 3 Vendors


In PLM, there is no single vendor that can meet all of the requirements, and the market is still immature, so almost every product can be the right solution provided a certain set of requirements. In this part of the article we review 3 vendors who offer products to the PLM market - IDe, Thetis, and PDMware - as a demonstration that selecting the appropriate solution is highly dependant on the prioritized needs of the business.

This indicates that those clients whose businesses rely heavily on managing the new product development and commercialization processes, but don''t require strong engineering and PDM tools, will want to be sure to include IDe in their technology selection.

Aras Announces VPLM for Autodesk Vault


A week before the Autodesk University 2012 conference, Aras, a provider of enterprise-class open source product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions, announced the launch of Aras VPLM, a commercial offering designed specifically for companies that run Autodesk Vault with Inventor for three-dimensional product design and AutoCAD for two-dimensional design.

This combination is not yet much competition against the mainstream big three PLM players (i.e., ENOVIA, Teamcenter, and Windchill) but is a significant one against Aras. But, while Autodesk PLM 360 is still more suitable for small to medium businesses (SMBs), Aras can support complex and customized needs. Item-based and process-oriented, Aras VPLM is designed for the most demanding and complex PLM Read More

Has Consolidation Made the PLM Market More Agile? Part Two: Market Impact


The advent and growth of vendors targeting the needs of discrete manufacturing industries proves that the PLM market in this sector has been hot. Agile Software has made a name for itself by providing the tools that support the collaborative exchange of product data, appealing to companies that rely on contractors for the manufacture of its products. For companies whose BOMs change frequently, this integrated capability set has been extremely important, and Agile has thrived in the PLM selection situations requiring extensive external collaboration.
