What's Wrong with Application Software? It's the Economics
Enterprise architecture is a technology problem, not the business problem. The business problem is time, money, and quality. Focusing on modifications as an

cad lessons  not integrated, for example, CAD helped in design, PLM helped manage a product in production. We can look at today's enterprise architecture and typically see islands of automation. We have a series of development tools that help us with initial development, but little or no integration exists across the software lifecycle. Most development tools are like CAD systems helping with development but not across the lifecycle. The new enterprise architecture should learn from PLM and take an integrated, Read More...

Oracle's Product Future: What Can the Past Tell?
Oracle does not have a history of major acquisitions, let alone experience with the subsequent integration efforts. Run by a management team that has never

cad lessons  Indeed, for nearly three decades since its inception, Oracle has been markedly unenthusiastic about acquisitions. However, some of its functional nuggets have come from a number of focused acquisitions of small companies. Oracle began its buying spree in the late 1990s with a series of analytic application and e-commerce companies, such as One Meaning , a metadata management provider; Thinking Machines , a data mining tool; and Carleton an extract-transform-load (ETL) tool, and continued its acquisitions Read More...
Acquisitive Vendor Expands Its Enterprise Asset Management Potential

Also, the CAD modules provide designers with a drawing tool for process and instrumentation design, while predefined forms and the convenient lookup functionality are further examples of features that benefit all design disciplines. This integration permits instant population of the asset database upon acceptance of a new or updated plant design, along with capabilities to update the design documents to reflect “as built” changes. To the benefit of its customers, IFS has shown a strong Read More...
Selecting PLM Software Solutions
Past experience shows us that the vast majority of enterprise technology evaluations run over time and budget, and once selected, the majority of the

cad lessons  applications like PDM and CAD. No vendor provides all of the required solutions for a full PLM initiative, so almost all solutions will involve best of breed components. See The PLM Program, An Incremental Approach To The Strategic Value Of PLM , for more information on the components of a complete PLM solution. ERP selections are typically run as a one-time selection process to find an integrated solution. In contrast, the PLM Program for any one company may include multiple selection projects. Read More...
ECAD/MCAD Collaboration Solutions: Integrating Mechanical and Electrical Product Design
Electro-mechanical design continues to gain importance, as the majority of today’s products have both electrical and mechanical components and systems

This paper provides CIMdata's perspective on ECAD-MCAD collaboration; the motivations for its use, its value and future, as well as CIMdata's views on a set of solutions based on ProSTEP's EDMD Schema. The following sections address: ECAD-MCAD Collaboration-a brie Read More...
SolidWorks and IQMS Partner Tightly
IQMS is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution systems (MES) vendor that tries to deliver as much native functionality as possible

Manufacturers use SolidWorks rendering tools to create, simulate, publish, and manage product data, parts, and tools. From within the SolidWorks menu (without the need for a separate CAD-ERP linking program), users can link parts, tools, and other assembly file details and configurations to create engineering change orders (ECOs) and cross-populate the inventory, bills of material (BOMs), and project management and Read More...
CAD-centric PLM, ERP-centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What's Right for You? - Part 3
Part 1 of this blog series started with the assertion that product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions are becoming increasingly important to enterprises in a

But as in the case of rigid and monolithic old ERP replacements (e.g., see  Workday ’s recent ongoing success ), the fact is that some companies are switching PLM systems when they have a failure condition. I believe that the economic/political reality moving forward into the future will make the multi-million dollar big Read More...
PLM Road Map 2009: What to Expect?
I went through the agenda of the PLM Road Map 2009 (September 22 and 23, in Detroit, Michigan [US]) when I submitted my attendance preferences to conference

cad lessons  Teams in breakout sessions. CAD Visibility and Interoperability Managing and controlling product data is an important aspect of PLM, but it is not enough to lock the information (especially computer-aided design [CAD] data) in a vault. A key value in PLM, however, is the ability to extend this data beyond the desktop to other engineers, other departments, and other stakeholders–primarily customers and suppliers. I’m expecting that Dr. Ken Versprille’s session CAD/Visualization Trends: Dealing with Read More...
PTC Sees SMBs as “Essential” to Its Business
While opportunities for new or replacement product lifecycle management (PLM) systems at large enterprises are rare, neither is the small to medium business

In the early days, PTC had a dedicated Windchill/Pro INTRALINK PDM product for handling its flagship CAD product, Pro/Engineer ( Pro/E ). In addition to not really being interoperable with other CAD systems, INTRALINK was also a heavy client product during the client-server era. Since then, Windchill PDMlink has proven to be a much better PDM solution—it's Web-based, open to multiple CAD products, and a foundation module for Read More...
Geac Hopes To See System21 Shine Again Like 'Aurora' Part 2: Market Impact

Reverting to support for only the IBM iSeries (formerly IBM AS/400 ) and dropping the support for Unix have additionally narrowed the market opportunity. Consequently or not, Geac had seemingly been unable to successfully market its System 21 product during the 1999 2001 period.

Two Origins, One Destination? A Look at the Two Main Genres of PLM Solution from the Integration Standpoint
There are two major genres of PLM solution: CAD-PLM and ERP-PLM. These two types have different integration capabilities, but the gap between them is shrinking

cad lessons  the heavy requirements of CAD integration in core cPDm functionality for discrete manufacturing, major PLM vendors (such as Dassault Systèmes , Siemens PLM , and PTC ) have significant presence in CAD and related areas. These three vendors now provide both PLM tools and cPDm solutions, and hold almost a half of the total PLM market revenue (data source: AMR) [1] . The reason for the strength of these CAD-PLM vendors is obvious—they all started from CAD and developed cPDm solutions along the way by Read More...
PLM as a Strategic Weapon: An Underlying PlanetPTC Live 2011 Theme - Part 1

To be fair, at PlanetPTC Live 2010 there was a hint of a major (even revolutionary) new product design “uber” suite in the making, code-named Project Lightning , but in general, the annual event was fairly subdued. Well, what a difference a year can make! Blockbuster PlanetPTC Live 2011 Announcements For one, in late 2010, Project Lightning turned from a Read More...

Siemens, a $74B German company, while citing competitive pressures, shifted one-third of its 30,000 embedded software engineers to China, India and Russia. This shift affected product development operations in Siemen's fixed-line and wireless telecom, automation and drives, transportation, and energy transmission businesses.
