Aras Announces Alternative Structure Browser for Large Assemblies

New Structure Browser Provides Advanced Viewing Capabilities for Large, Complex Product Structures such as entire Aircraft, Vehicles, Ships and Industrial Equipment 

ANDOVER, Mass. and Solothurn, Switzerland – November 17, 2011Aras®, the leading provider of enterprise open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solutions, today announced the Alternative Structure Browser for Large Assemblies add-on solution for the Aras Innovator PLM platform. Developed by Aras gold certified partner Minerva of France, the Alternative Structure Browser creates an interactive graphical representation of the Bill of Materials (BOM) with advanced visualization and navigation capabilities within Aras. The Alternative Structure Browser for Aras is ideal for companies with large electro-mechanical product structures such as aircraft, automobiles, ships and sophisticated industrial equipment.

The Alternative Structure Browser enables Aras users to zoom in and out on complex product structures, as well as drag and drop the structure nodes to re-orient the data for optimal viewing. Users click on a node (i.e. Part, Drawing, CAD model or other item) to view the related description and all the associated properties. A simple click also enables users to drill down to the part master, document or whatever the item being viewed deep in the structure. User security is controlled so individuals can only see and access the data and files for which they have permission. The Alternative Structure Browser leverages the Cytoscape Web graph library, a powerful open source platform for visualizing complex networks and integrating any type of attribute data.

“The Alternative Structure Browser is a great example of the power of an open source and community development,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. “Aras’s open architecture enables partners like Minerva, as well other corporate community members and users, to develop and deploy advanced solutions that would otherwise not be possible. Our enterprise open source format gives global companies complete control over their PLM environment.”

The Alternative Structure Browser for Aras is available from Minerva
