HAMAMATSU, Japan—Feb. 29, 2016—Elysium, a leading global provider of data translation software, announces a new product called “Elysium xPDM for Aras” that will revolutionize the exchange of product information between Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, a collaborative business experience platform whose 3D design, analysis, simulation and information intelligence applications drive innovation processes across all disciplines, and the Aras Innovator PLM platform from Aras. As the only solution provider authorized by both Dassault Systèmes and Aras, Elysium has developed an integration connector for data exchange between the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and Aras Innovator.
Using the xPDM infrastructure provided by Dassault Systèmes and the open Web services APIs in Aras, the connector enables data to flow smoothly and securely between the two systems. For example, a company using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s applications for 3D design and Aras Innovator for other processes such as manufacturing and supply chain operations can take advantage of Elysium’s high fidelity 3D data translation technology and the xCAD infrastructure from Dassault Systèmes to ensure accurate 3D CAD data are available to everyone across the organization using Aras.
In order to address shorter life cycles, efficient design processes must be linked with global manufacturing, quality, purchasing and sales information. More and more businesses are choosing to implement the best platform to manage a variety of information including CAD data, drawings, technical documents, material information, cost and more throughout the entire manufacturing process and supply chain. Many manufacturing companies are selecting the best suited PLM and PDM systems for each purpose. Data exchange compatibility and the ability to distribute information between these different PLM and PDM systems have been an ongoing challenge for many organizations which is why Elysium has specifically developed this connector product.
“We have long standing relationships with all the major PLM providers,” stated Kentaro Fukuta, general manager of Global Business at Elysium. “We are proud of our strong partnership with Dassault Systèmes, world leader in 3D design software, 3D digital mock up and PLM solutions, for the development of this solution using Dassault Systèmes xPDM infrastructure, and with Aras on the Multi-CAD Gateway solution for Aras Innovator. The history and knowledge that come with these partnerships have made it possible to develop this unique and innovative solution.”
