Aras Innovator & Resilience

Posted on September 10, 2014

I thought I’d have a lot more time to write article during the last Aras Community Event but this has once again been a very intense event with lots of discussions with other people interested in Aras Innovator. During the event you have one main presentation or sometimes there are three tracks : Basic, Technical and Business. I usually go to either Business or Technical presentations. Basic are usually more made for prospects or eve, people who have never heard of PLM. But I was interested in one basic conference where the speaker was Aras CEO, Peter Schroer: “Resilient PLM”

Here is the presentation text :

“For long life products such as aircraft, automobiles and plants you need a PLM system that can manage product changes, and control product traceability and compliance for the full lifecycle. Learn how the Aras approach to creating resilient systems can be used to manage very long life products while also preserving the IT investment you have made in customizing and integrating your PLM system. From upgrades to customizations, the Aras model ensures that you can always take advantage of the latest PLM features and newest technologies.”

I honestly wasn’t sure about the definition of Resilience when I came into this presentation. Here are the wikipedia definition:

General : “Resilience is the ability of a material to absorb energy when it is deformed elastically, and release that energy upon unloading”

Applied to IT : “Resiliency is the ability to provide and maintain an acceptable level of service in the face of faults and challenges to normal operation

I sometimes organize a webmeeting called “do more with PLM” which explains what a PLM system requires to easily customize a solution to do more than simple PLM.

Here is the presentation made by Peter Schroer explaining Resilience and how it has always been taken into account when building Aras Innovator.
