Aras Innovator release features an array of enhancements designed to optimize
the PLM platform for enterprise-wide PLM deployments that take advantage of
geographically distributed data centers, private clouds or hybrid environments
that combine both on-premise and cloud computing infrastructure. It is available
for download from the
area of enterprise manageability, the platform now supports data server
virtualization, allowing companies to consolidate physical server
infrastructure and distribute computing horsepower to resources spread around
the globe. In addition, enhanced caching techniques help minimize traffic over
the WAN, ensuring faster performance for worldwide PLM deployments,
particularly on high latency networks and in low-bandwidth conditions such as
those that likely exist in emerging economies, according to Aras officials.
foster international business process collaboration, the new release allows
workflows to operate in multiple languages concurrently, delivering workflow
activities and instructions in the native language of each participant. There
is also new multi-level system notification functionality so system
administrators can tailor notices to users by specific names, groups or roles —
another capability designed to minimize PLM administration headaches.
Security is another area
of focus for the new Aras Innovator release, including advanced database
protection, enhanced track and audit functionality, and additional system
To address the pain of
system upgrades, Aras is upgraded "in place" without recoding or data migration
— a significant departure from traditional PLM system upgrades which require
reimplementation and data migration. With the new release, Aras will now
perform both minor and major upgrades as part of the Aras Unlimited
subscription package at no additional cost.
Aras' model-based SOA
(Service Oriented Architecture) technology is the key to quickly and easily
upgrading highly customized business applications, according to Peter Schroer,
Aras' president. "The problem has always been that CIOs must trade off their
business' need to automate competitive processes versus the IT reality that
once a complex system is customized, it is very difficult and expensive to
implement upgrades from the software," he says. "Aras' Subscription makes the
business case easy — all upgrades are included in the fixed price annual
subscription regardless of customization."
Aras Innovator supports
the latest Microsoft software platform, including Windows 7 and Windows Server
2008 R2 with Hyper-V.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
