Aras Innovator ECAD Integration

Interdisciplinary innovation means integrating E/E-engineering into business processes

In our increasingly digitized and automated world, PCB and electrical engineering are playing an increasingly prominent role. Manufacturers are therefore interlinking the interdisciplinary engineering processes of their innovation team with the aim of maximizing their competitive advantage and establishing a sustainable innovation culture.

Its ECAD integrations allow Aras Innovator to contributes to the easy, transparent management of the data and processes of the lifecycle of mechatronic products and solutions. Aras Innovator thus closes another digital gap in the end-to-end flow of information throughout product development. And this shortens the time-to-market with reduced innovation costs.

Automated management of ECAD data and innovation processes without PLM knowledge

Intelligent direct integration of ECAD tools into Aras Innovator lighten the load on designers to a great extent. Thanks to their automation, they process native engineering data on the basis of individually defined templates and save them at a defined location in the specially defined PLM data model. Not only do they store the native design data, they also derive defined objects and documents and prepare them for further processing by different target groups in the value-added network, combine and distribute them them.

The designers in the PLM system do not need to be aware of this. The intelligent direct integrations are embedded as a plug-in in the navigation of the respective CAD tool so that they can access the native engineering data. This means that users initiate data management functions in PLM directly from their familiar CAD environment.
