Avec un peu de retard, voici les 5 articles les plus lus sur ce blog au cours du mois de novembre (les articles, eux, ne sont pas forcément du mois de novembre). C’est un mois dans lequel il y a eu une communication d’Aras vers l’alternative structure browser qui a donc permis d’attirer un trafic intéressant sur l’article. Et la discussion animée sur le ROI a permis de repousser à la troisième place le tutoriel sur l’installation d’Aras Innovator !

  1. (Eng) Alternative Structure Browser (v0.15)
  2. (Eng) you can’t calculate ROI, just focus on visible cost cuts

(Fr) Connecteur Aras pour Ms Office- Création de documents depuis Aras

Posted on December 14, 2011

DocumentsArasNous avons déjà réalisé quelques présentations de notre connecteur office, il est d’ailleurs en production chez plusieurs de nos clients. La première phase d’utilisation du connecteur avait pour but de concentrer toutes les fonctionnalités du côté de l’application Office. Dans ce cas l’application Office est le client Aras et permet de créer des items, d’appeler des modèles de documents, etc… Cependant nous voulons fournir une solution qui permette d’appliquer des flux d’utilisation qui respectent les bonnes pratiques de gestion de documents dans un environnement PLM centré sur le produit plutôt que de fournir un simple outil de GED. Ainsi une des fonctionnalités importantes à réintégrer dans le connecteur était la capacité à partir du produit pour générer une documentation au lieu de créer de la documentation avec cette même documentation pour seul point de départ.

Pour mieux comprendre le processus présenté dans la vidéo en voici une description graphique:

(Eng) Confinnovator : Aras Innovator PLM implementation speed-up tool

Posted on December 13, 2011

SetupConfinnovatorOne of our target at Minerva is to deliver Aras implementation in a very fast and flexible way being able to develop the solution with the customer in a way that the customer can see its requirement implemented more quickly than with any other PLM solutions. This is primarly offered by the flexibility of Aras Innovator but we work on providing some interfaces designed to help during the implementation period. So during our french kick-off we started a project called ConfInnovator which was following some potential improvement we noticed during recent implementation. The first one we worked on was identity management as the implementation was gathering more than 250 users and we then added more features.

The Actual features

Language Management

We developed a language management tool a while ago when we were working on a French language pack. Since then we’ve increased our knowledge of the solution and found how to make a better tool in order to manage this translation work. It is really important because when you install the French language pack available on the Aras website, you translate the interface and the words that already are in the template PLM solution but when you develop new features for an international environnement you need an easy way to translate things.

Languages Confinnovator

Identity Management

In Every PLM Solution identity management is not an easy thing to manage. The first difficulty is not the technical part of it but mainly the setup of the identities structure. With Confinnovator, we help defining this structure with a flexible tree which offers you a clear view of you live setup and give you the ability to made quick changes.

Identities

Method editor

Aras integrates an IDE to build your methods. The only thing that is missing is intellisense code completion feature. That’s why we’ve developed this module which helps you develop by providing an intellisense feature based on the Aras API.

MethodEditor

Package Manager

As we started to have more customers on Production instances we wanted to make it easier for us to manage packages when we roll-out new features moving from development instances to quality and then production. So we made this plug-in which gives you a quick visibility of your package content and setup.

PackageManager

Permission Manager

This permission manager plug-in is mainly useful because we pretty much have our implementation process developping thing in a specific order. In this order we separate Data-model conception from permission management setup. For this reason we needed a quick solution to move from various item types to setup the correct permission once the data-model is done.

PermissionManager

TOC Manager

This is one of the most recent we’ve developped. It was due to the fact that a lot of customer during trainings realize that it can take a bit of time to setup the Tree of Content that appears as a left panel menu.

TOC

A Plug-in based product

We’ll communicate soon on how we want to use or distribute this product. But to make it a very flexible tool and allow people to use just some features out of the numerous one we want to build, we made the solution on a plug-in basis where every feature is a plugin for which you just have to get a folder that you copy to your install folder in order to activate it.

Follow our lead developper on that project
