This trend in manufacturing software I expect to see accelerated as we move through 2015. Although not everyone is sanguine about the efficacy of fully integrated (if indeed that is even possible) design to manufacture software. Even so, here is yet another first step.
Apriso 9.7 is now available from Dassault Systèmes, with enriched integration to the company’s digital manufacturing applications. As the first significant new product introduction since Dassault Systèmes’ acquisition of Apriso Corp., the Apriso 9.7 application suite offers an improved business experience for Apriso users, with closer, out-of-the-box integration to other DELMIA Digital Manufacturing products, helping to better bridge the gap between the virtual and real worlds of manufacturing. This Apriso product portfolio update delivers enhanced digital continuity from design to execution, supporting paperless manufacturing initiatives while accelerating new product introduction.
“The launch of Apriso 9.7 represents an important first step to becoming part of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Apriso capabilities will be available by simply adding widgets to the platform, extending real-time visibility to manufacturing intelligence to engineers and other users of the platform,” said John Fishell, DELMIA Product Management at Dassault Systèmes.
Dassault Systèmes customers can use Apriso 9.7 to help ensure engineering designed work instructions are properly executed on the shop floor. Examples include manufacturing Bill of Materials (mBOM), routings and 3D work instructions. Presenting feedback from manufacturing to engineering through the 3DEXPERIENCE portal helps improve production process performance and validate whether virtual routings are optimal for a real world environment.
