A new product lifecycle management platform from Aras Component Engineering
has been selected by Desktop Engineering as its Editor’s Pick of the Week for
October 15, 2014.
According to editor at large for Desktop Engineering, Anthony J.
Lockwood, Aras Component Engineering embeds access to the cloud-based IHS CAPS
Universe electronic component database inside the Aras Innovator PLM platform,
enabling designers, engineers and sourcing professionals to get ready access to
data on some 100 million commercial electronic components from 2,000
manufacturers directly from Aras PLM.
Describing it as a secure, single point of access connection, Lockwood
observes that separate browsers or applications need not be launched since the
database is always ready to access when required.
Lockwood explains that the Aras PLM platform offers the potential to
boost productivity, simplify component selection processes and ease approvals
for new parts as well as new manufacturers, adding that its ability to help the
user find new sources for components alone is enormous.
