Aras is bolstering
the fault tolerance and system configurability of its open PLM platform with
the announcement of enhanced vault replication capabilities for Aras Innovator
that aim to simplify the user experience.
Aras's new vault replication enhancements allow
system administrators to completely configure replication rules without any
scripting or programming. System administrators can quickly and easily define
automated replication processes, express complex business rules and create
replication events with no coding required. Configurable vault replication
rules allow the definition of different replication modes for unlimited vaults,
file types, file ownership or any other user-defined business requirement. Replication
events can be set up to operate on-demand, upon file change or on a periodic
schedule when WAN traffic is minimized.
replication approach is designed to ensure that users are always working with
the most current version of a file. With Aras, end users have a single, unified
view of files, even in complex multi-vault, globally distributed environments. Aras
avoids the replication issues faced by other major PLM systems by assigning a
unique identifier to every version of a file. The Aras approach to vault
replication aims for the highest level of data integrity possible while
eliminating synchronization problems and providing a simple experience for end
users, officials explained.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
