Touting an expanding partner network, Aras continues to push the envelope with open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), including its latest joint development effort with NorthRidge Software. NorthRidge, a developer of advanced search solutions, has signed on to the Aras partner program to develop a sophisticated search solution for Aras Innovator based on Apache Lucene, an open source search engine.
The NorthRidge solution will provide users with a fast and secure interface for accessing the full range of complex data sets managed in Aras Innovator as well as information stored in other venues, including intranets, Microsoft SharePoint, file shares or any where else engineering or product development-related content is captured. Using the new search capability, users of Aras Innovator will be able to locate engineering drawings, documents and other information simply by searching on keyword terms, phrases used within the content or other metadata value. Searches are performed using a familiar Google-style user interface and the results are presented with the most relevant documents appearing at the top of the list.
