Aras EPLM with Requirements Management combines advanced requirements management functionality with enterprise PLM, providing companies that run SolidWorks with powerful capabilities that are easy to use for systems engineering, systems planning, development and realization. Users can identify, associate, track and trace different types of requirements - including physical, functional, logical and performance requirements - and validate that the system or product satisfies the original intent.
“With the increasing complexity of all types of products the way to ensure accuracy is to put all your requirements in a single system and actively link those requirements to the actual product development process”, said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. “Aras EPLM with Requirements Management gives companies that run SolidWorks the advanced functionality they want along with the scalability, security and flexibility they really need, in a single solution that works across the enterprise.”
