World-leading Manufacturer to Implement Aras for BOM and Change Management, Requirements Management, Project Management and Quality Management
ANDOVER, Mass. and Munich, Germany – June 19, 2013 – Aras®, the leading enterprise open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solution provider, today announced that Consilium Marine and Safety AB, a world-leading supplier of safety, navigation and environmental solutions, headquartered in Nacka, Sweden, has selected the Aras PLM solution suite to automate product development processes and improve product planning, compliance and predictability. Consilium will launch its Aras implementation with the Electronics and High Tech (EHT) application from Aras Certified Gold Partner Minerva, and include BOM and Change Management, Requirements Management, Project Management and Quality Management.
Consilium was driven to implement PLM by a desire to move away from managing product information in isolated, manual systems. The company wanted a solution that would address a wide range of business challenges and meet the exacting safety standards of the fire and gas detection industry. The company selected Aras for its breadth of scope and functionality.
“Consilium chose Aras because we offer more than the standard mechanical CAD file management found in most PLM products,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. “Aras is a complete enterprise lifecycle solution that provides a total view of the product structure, including electronics, mechanical, software, etc., across all disciplines.”
As one of the world’s leading suppliers of safety and navigation products and solutions, Consilium strives to protect lives, material assets and the environment through its systems for fire protection, gas and emission detection, automation systems and navigational equipment. Marketing to the global marine and the oil and gas industries, the company has more than 550 employees and is represented in over 50 countries.
