Siemens PLM Analyst Conference 2014—Blending Virtual and Real Worlds—Part One


Siemens’ new “realize innovation” strategy is an evolution of what has been in the works at Siemens PLM Software for some time. The vendor has been working hard to deliver industry-centric immersive decision-making environments that support systems engineering-driven product development.

This unification with MOM (Figure 1) gives Siemens PLM the chance to espouse its realize innovation vision and conference theme and run the full “innovation (the classical domain of PLM)–realization (automation and production)–utilization (experience and the Internet of Things [IoT])” cycle.   Figure 1 – Siemens MOM additions (click for larger images) 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.

Siemens PLM Software Acquires Camstar MES


Siemens PLM Software recently announced an agreement to acquire Camstar Systems, Inc., one of the proven market leaders in enterprise manufacturing execution systems (MES) software. The acquisition will build on Siemens’ industrial digitalization strategy by broadening its integrated product development and production automation solutions for the electronics, semiconductor, and medical device industries.

Siemens will focus Camstar on electronics, semiconductor, and medical devices, and the SIMATIC IT platform on the other key industries, primarily process industries. In that sense Camstar fills a gap Siemens has had in the electronics, semiconductor, and medical devices industries, and fits with both Siemens’ industry-oriented approach and its digitalization vision (bringing realization into Read More

Apriso Joins Dassault Systèmes Tent


Dassault Systèmes, a renowned provider of 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up, and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, recently announced its intent to acquire Apriso, a provider of manufacturing software solutions, for approximately US$205 million in cash. The acquisition of the California-based Apriso, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, enriches the global manufacturing

In 2011, Dassault Systèmes acquired the Intercim MES, which is already part of DELMIA and has Boeing as a customer. But Apriso provides next-generation MES, with solutions that synchronize global manufacturing networks and offer real-time visibility and control over the business processes performed by plants and suppliers.

Selecting PLM Software Solutions Part 5 - User Recommendations


This tutorial points out the significance of buyers researching PLM technology vendors before determining the short list and vendors researching the viability of the opportunity before committing time and money to a sales effort. Since a 'one-size-fits-all' product is still not quite a viable possibility, almost every product can win provided certain set of requirements. The Catch 22 for both buyers and vendors/VARs is to pinpoint the right opportunity in this ongoing 'dating game'.
