LORD Corporation Selects Aras PLM Platform to Standardize Product Development Processes, Manage Growth

Manufacturer Deploys Document Management, Configuration Management, Engineering Change Management, Quality Applications for more than 1,000 Users

ANDOVER, Mass. and Munich, Germany – January 11, 2017 – Aras®, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, today announced that LORD Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of adhesives, coating, sensing and motion technologies, selected Aras Innovator® to standardize product development processes at current sites, and to help the company efficiently support emerging businesses.

When fully implemented, LORD anticipates more than 1,000 users will access Document Management, Configuration Management, Engineering Change Management, as well as Quality Systems (CAPA) applications as part of the Aras PLM platform.

LORD Corporation is transforming their business of engineering due to the flexibility, scalability, and common architecture offered by Aras PLM. The company is better positioned to easily and quickly integrate new acquisitions, while standardizing current engineering and product development sites onto one common platform.

After a comprehensive search of most major PLM providers, LORD Corporation selected Aras due to:

  • Scalable, robust and flexible PLM capabilities to accommodate changing business and market condition, as well as future acquisitions anticipated by the manufacturer.
  • Model-based, service-oriented architecture that delivers low total cost of ownership without reducing the long term vision of the project.
  • The expertise of Aras partner xLM who managed the data extraction and data load portion of the first phase of implementation.
  • Ease of integration with multiple systems including SAP; an internal project management system; as well as Product Data Management (PDM) integrations.

“A flexible PLM platform is an important competitive advantage for LORD. With the company’s growth, their PLM solution must easily accommodate changing business needs with “yet-to-be-determined” requirements dictated by acquisitions,” notes Peter Schroer, Aras Founder and CEO. “Unlike traditional systems that impose a one-size-fits-all “best practices”, the Aras PLM platform ensures LORD can support the needs of the enterprise as it continues to grow and drive innovation.”
