Featured white paper: Extend the Digital Thread with Integrated Manufacturing Process Planning 

Be a Resilient Industrial Leader


With Minerva PLM, powered by Aras and  Aras Innovator, industrial manufacturers enjoy improved processes across the entire lifecycle. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) with built-in Product Data Management (PDM) integrates across the enterprise, through the supply chain, and links part and BOM structures. This can include secure management, creation, change, and archive of information from MCAD and ECAD systems, ERP, and other systems where product data resides.

Today’s industrial manufacturer succeeds and thrives by holistically addressing systems engineering, quality, and other key performance areas that traditionally challenge today’s global manufacturer.
