Featured white paper: How to Tackle Product Complexity in Automotive

The Right Tool to Lead the Race

Minerva PLM, powered by Aras and Aras Innovator offer a resilient Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platform that tackles the challenges of today’s fast-paced environment in the global automotive industry.

Both, Minerva PLM  and Aras Innovator provide comprehensive PLM functionality in a single solution, enabling automotive companies to connect global product development across mechanical, electrical, electronic, and software disciplines.  

Go beyond classic product document management (PDM) and manage multiple, complex bills of materials, synchronize EBOM’s and MBOM’s, and tackle rule-based variant management, while supporting global manufacturing and supply chains. 

By combining the flexibility and scalable architecture of Aras Innovator and the out-of-the-box industry-specific templates of Minerva PLM, organizations can easily manage increasing customer expectations for new vehicles, with shrinking material availability, while satisfying global market regulations and consumer buying patterns and package options.


Key benefits for the automotive industry 


Minerva PLM and Aras Innovator are easy to use, mobile-enabled, and deploy in your data center or in the cloud with defense-grade security and federated integration capabilities.
