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. Aras VPLM for Autodesk Vault

Dassault Systèmes-Expanding Product Development and the 3D Experience


The Dassault Systèmes vision is to enable everyone—from product designers, engineers, and suppliers to end users and their respective communities—to create, share, and experience the three-dimensional virtual world, thereby maximizing the value of their intellectual property and digital assets. In this article, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reports on the 3D design tools he recently saw demoed, how they enable collaboration, and their application to manufacturing and other sectors.

As the pace of 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). At the forefront of these changes is product development software player PTC, and the company’s 3D product design solution Creo, now on its third version, which offers powerful CAD interoperability and design and efficiency improvements.

There is no conversion required, and the files can be used as if they were native to PTC Creo. There are also no new business objects created that need to be managed.   These Read More

What Can Aras’ Selection as PLM Enhancement at MAN Diesel & Turbo Tell Us?


While multi-CAD (computer aided design) situations have been a matter of course at large manufacturing organizations, it appears that multi-PLM (product lifecycle management) software deployments will follow suit. To that end, Aras, an upbeat open source PLM software solution provider for large enterprises, recently announced that MAN Diesel @ Turbo (MAN), a provider of large bore diesel engines

catia tut  it decided to combine CATIA CAD and ENOVIA into a single next-generation system called the V6 platform. V6 actually includes CATIA , SIMULIA , DELMIA , and the VPM and MatrixOne parts of ENOVIA. CATIA got the most significant rewrite in V6 to get rid of traditional CAD files, and represents the geometry as database records (objects) instead. In other words, there are no longer CAD files being created, which means that if you’re going to use CATIA V6 for CAD, you need at least one seat of ENOVIA V6 for Read More

What Could Be Some New Frontiers for Large CAD/PLM Providers?


My attendance of Siemens’ two-day product lifecycle management (PLM) analyst summit in the late summer of 2011 was like trying to drink from a fire hose. Even without the plant automation and manufacturing execution system (MES) discussion (which was also included in the 2010 event), there was an abundance of products and related information, and I am still trying to wrap my mind around the main

Shifts in Payment Models for CAD Deployments


Given the recent desktop virtualization move for PTC Creo, it will be interesting to watch whether PTC will start offering subscriptions for some Creo apps (and Dassault Systèmes for SolidWorks). This is especially interesting in light of the recent move of Siemens Solid Edge to subscription licensing, and also since Autodesk is now offering its desktop and other design products on a pay-as-you-go

catia tut  mid-market category, and Dassault CATIA, Siemens NX , and PTC Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/E ) in the large enterprise category. For the latter, I don’t see subscription or cloud models coming any time soon. The reason for Autodesk to do pay-as-you-go is that it fits with the vendor’s overall strategy in how it targets professional (and even consumer) users. The reason for Solid Edge to do so is that it is still a smaller player trying to catch up with SolidWorks’ market share. For its part, Read More

Embraer to Overhaul Its PLM Platform with PTC Windchill


In a well-established upper-range product lifecycle management (PLM) market total platform replacements are a rare occurrence. Brazil-based Embraer, one of the world’s largest aircraft manufacturers, has recently selected PTC’s Windchill PLM technology solutions to “help bring new innovative aircraft to market faster, more efficiently, and with the highest levels of quality.” With the switch from

catia tut  design (CAD) platform is CATIA V5 and its computer aided manufacturing (CAM)/digital manufacturing platform is DELMIA, both Dasault Systemes brands, the initial instinct was to give ENOVIA PLM a shot. But ENOVIA is not the PLM market share leader, neither overall nor in the aviation segment (especially not ENOVIA V5, with its flavors from various acquisitions such as MatrixOne, SmarTeam, etc.), and Embraer did not want to again get overly dependent on a particular software vendor. There are also Read More

Dassault Systèmes to Acquire Realtime Technology


Dassault Systèmes announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire controlling interest in Realtime Technology AG. Dassault Systèmes, adds the high-end 3D visualization software from Tealtime Technology into its already impressive stable of solutions for 3D design, 3D digital mock-up, and product lifecycle management (PLM).

Autodesk to Bring Microsoft Business Solutions Closer to PLM

Dassault’s Consumer Experience Management, Virtually Yours


Product lifecycle management (PLM) for retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) is usually seen as a lighter version of more complex systems used by manufacturing companies to design sophisticated industrial products. Dassault Systèmes is one of the few vendors to offer PLM solutions that specifically address customer experience in retail. In this article, TEC analyst Gabriel Gheorghiu shows you how retailers can use the Dassault Systèmes solution for customer experience.
