More news from PLM provider Aras on the cloud front. The company, which In November announced a partnership with Prodeos to deploy the Aras Innovator PLM suite in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, is now working with another partner to extend the PLM platform’s cloud capabilities.
Aras and Trubiquity will provide solutions that connect Aras Innovator to Trubiquity’s Cloud-based services for secure collaboration and managed file transfer (MFT) in the PLM workflow. With the initial offering, users will be able to share, collaborate and manage CAD files, specifications, requirements and other intellectual property in a secure cloud-based environment from within their PLM workflows. The capability is intended to facilitate the exchange of product-related data between globally dispersed supply chain partners simultaneously, Aras officials said.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
