Kawasaki Heavy Industries Selects Aras for Enterprise PLM

Leading Global Manufacturer Chooses Aras Platform to Speed Global Product Development, Improve Agility and Drive Innovation http://aras.com/plm/002500

ANDOVER, Mass. and Munich, Germany – June 18, 2014 – Aras®, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, today announced that Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. (KHI), a premiere manufacturer of equipment for the aerospace, energy, industrial equipment, power, rolling stock and shipping industries has selected the Aras solution suite for enterprise PLM. KHI will leverage Aras as a unified service platform to streamline new product development and optimize costs within and between the company’s multiple business units.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries will implement Aras Innovator® as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for maximum business agility. KHI chose Aras because it needed a single scalable, flexible PLM system that would enable the company to respond faster to business environment changes and accommodate the unique processes used by the many different KHI business units.

“The challenge for our PLM system was to shorten the construction period and reduce costs in the whole KHI group,” said Yutaro Mishima, Information Planning Department, Corporate Planning Division of KHI. “With Aras, our business units can share process innovations with one another faster and greatly reduce outflow charges, all in a common system infrastructure that is easily tailored to each unit’s unique requirements.”

With 34 thousand employees on six continents and over $13 billion in annual revenue, KHI is a global manufacturing leader. The company focuses on innovating fast to meet the diverse needs of a global customer base and dynamically changing markets, such as Energy and Power. A strong commitment to sharing technological innovations across the company’s multiple business units ensures KHI will maintain competitive advantage around the world.
