Top 10 PLM Pitfalls To Avoid


Product lifecycle management (PLM) implementation strategies are in many cases unique from company to company. However, it is not uncommon for companies to encounter some of the same obstacles or pitfalls along the way. Understanding where these nasty little pitfalls lie will hopefully help you steer clear of them, and improve your chances for PLM success.

Autodesk Jumps on the Browser-based 3D Design Bandwagon


Autodesk is executing well along its main messages: cloud offerings are doing well, there is ongoing expansion in manufacturing, and the complete suite offering is working. The vendor recently announced that its customers will now be able to access Autodesk design tools via a Web browser, allowing access to full-fledged 3D design, engineering, and entertainment work without sacrificing performance, power, or functionality.

Discrete Manufacturing-Industrial Equipment Manufacturing (based on Dynamics AX)


Special industry machinery manufacturing is considered one of the most demanding segments of discrete manufacturing, in part because every machine you produce may be unique. Compared to standard production environments, manufacturing processes are complex. Your company faces challenges that include concurrent engineering and changes that must be addressed during the construction process. Microsoft Dynamics AX for Special & Large Machinery from To-Increase will help you streamline processes so you can: Integrate your business applications with product lifecycle management (PLM), product data management (PDM) & computer-aided design (CAD). Create and manage complex bids and quotations. Master complex engineer-to-order processes. Provide strong customer service and support. Integrate your business applications with computer-aided design (CAD), product data management (PDM), and product lifecycle management (PLM). Focus on lean project-based manufacturing

Autodesk to Spark Up 3D Printing

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 strategic sense. However, not all PLM products are created equal, especially in light of their different origins. I then explored the advantages and weaknesses of the first group of PLM solutions: those coming from stalwart

I believe that the economic/political reality moving forward into the future will make the multi-million dollar big Read More

Product Lifecycle Management: Expediting Product Innovation


The highly competitive product manufacturing market makes true product lifecycle management (PLM) inevitable. PLM helps companies map product requirements to features, obtain control over product data, preserve product knowledge assets, and enter into the new paradigm of modular product development.

cad suse  is storing the generated CAD data in a centralized, secure, and easily accessible place. It's also important for design engineers to be able to check in or check out these files on a daily basis during the design cycle. This gives designers more control over the product design, since the centralized storage of product data makes for an information-rich product development process. Furthermore, incorporating a strict approval mechanism enables designers to do things right the first time. Precise CAD data Read More

PTC Creo 3.0—CAD Interoperability


CAD software is changing to make data reusable and collaboratively shared in the customer/supplier’s native format (most commonly 3D CAD formats).

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.

And if a company that uses Autodesk design software with Autodesk Vault needs PLM, but is hesitant about going to the cloud, it now has an on-premise option. As Aras VPLM runs on the customer’s servers and network (as opposed to Read More

Where Does PLM Fit in the Extending LMS Formula?


There are two reasons which led me to write this blog. Firstly, I recently had briefings with vendors such as Learn.com and Xyleme that made me realize that the learning management system (LMS) industry is building up more and more connections with other technologies and enterprise applications. Secondly, a recent article (see Trends in LMS by Don McIntosh) explains how LMS is evolving with Web 2

Actually, for most learning purposes, a learner only needs a very small fraction of what today’s 3D CAD systems offer. Based on 3D models, 3D learning content needs to be generated and communicated conveniently and inexpensively, and I see 3DVIA as a good candidate for this task. Certainly, this is not the only thing Read More

Breaking Down Information Silos Between Manufacturing and Design: A New Approach to CAD/ERP Data Integration


What would you do if a critical error occurred during production—all because the wrong data was input into your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system? You’d probably be asking “how could this happen?” The ability to communicate information between teams can mean the difference between production success and failure. Avoid these snafus with a system that can integrate the data of both the design and ERP systems.
