Aras Innovator is a powerful PLM platform designed for flexibility, scalability, and security. Although the task of managing product lifecycle for which it was designed is one of significant complexity, actually installing Aras Innovator is a relatively simple process compared with many other enterprise-level software products. Even so, installation can be made difficult if the pre-install environment is not correctly prepared, and the installation process itself does contain a few “gotchas” to be aware of. This article is intended to help make the work as painless as possible.
Integration is one of the key areas that can increase the total value of your business systems. Integrations between CAD, PLM, and ERP are a great example of this. Each of these systems requires the data to support its own business processes. And of course, each system requires that the data be formatted to the system’s specifications so that the system can consume it. Without integration, businesses are left with using people to populate downstream business systems which can become a source of non-value-added cost and discrepancies between the systems.

Small business owners today create the vast majority of new job opportunities across the United States, and through the combined sale of their goods and services, account for over 50% of the Gross Domestic Product of the United States as well.
In Part 1 of this series, we discovered that using a Microsoft SQL Server (MS SQL or SQL Server) database will provide tools to handle large data sets, small data sets, complex data sets, dynamic data sets and even data that we share with other systems. But just what are those tools? How do I leverage SQL Server to processing these types of data with DriveWorks? What keywords should I put into my search engine to learn more More MORE? That’s what we’ll answer in this column.
Database. Just seeing the word can make people want to call a consultant. Luckily, I know where you can find one. (You can’t blame a guy for trying, right?) While DriveWorks provides a tremendous amount of rule driving functionality, when it comes to crunching raw data, the undisputed ruler of that domain is the database. Well, I’m here to spill the secrets and give you the basic concepts that you need to leverage Microsoft SQL Server (aka SQL Server aka MS SQL) for your DriveWorks data.
Today KISTERS AG announced that it has entered into an agreement with Razorleaf Europe for the development, support and sales of new versions of Aras integration software, which will replace the existing KISTERS products. This development, supported and delivered by Razorleaf’s new European operation, will be available for subscriptions in the near future.
A large number of questions that you see in the DriveWorks forums (you do follow those, right?) all have to do with the interaction between DriveWorks and SOLIDWORKS. Most often, that question involves a DriveWorks user asking how to get the results from a SOLIDWORKS model generation to drive a DriveWorks specification. Whether that means using the mass properties that SOLIDWORKS calculates, a reference dimension from a sketch, Bill of Materials information, or an interference check, people want DriveWorks to run that model while the user is filling in their forms.
The following video illustrates how Razorleaf’s integration platform Clover enables a fluid PLM integration between 3DEXPERIENCE and Aras Innovator. In many environments where there are multiple PLM or CAD systems, it becomes necessary to pass critical data between the two systems to enable end users to do their job better and access the most current, accurate data. Clover can enable single or bi-directional exchange of data depending on the use case, regardless of the applications being used (ERP, CRM, PLM, CAD, PDM, and more).
Earlier in the quarter, Razorleaf Government Solutions represented by Jonathan Scott participated in a presentation at the NIST MBE Summit in April 2018 in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Jonathan, along with co-presenters from Anark and ITI, shared details on the outcome of the 3D Data Exchange Project with NAVAIR’s PMA 261 program.
