  • 2. ACE 2012 INTERNATIONAL Viewing, Markup & More: Aras Visualization Strategy John Sperling Director of Product Management Engineering Applications Aras www.aras.comCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. aras.com
  • 3. Agenda Elements of the Aras strategy Conclusions after industry survey Aras vision for visual collaboration Plan for phasing inCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 3 aras.com
  • 4. What’s Wrong with VisualizationThe current state-of-the-market for visual collaboration falls short in several areas:  Undue focus on 3D above all else  Fragmented support for different data types  Reliance on proprietary formats and de-facto standards  Can view and markup, but can’t re-format and re-combine content for downstream use  Markup is mostly demo-ware  Social, collaborative capabilities with no product linkageCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 4 aras.com
  • 5. The Aras Strategy Aras Visual Collaboration should provide…  An open approach,  Supporting key enterprise use cases,  Covering key product data typesCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 5 aras.com
  • 6. Key Enterprise Use Cases Aras Innovator Enterprise Markup & Viewing Markup Collaboration Authoring Office Integration MS-Office MS-Office Work Package Generation File Work Viewable Viewable Conversion Viewable Package Authoring CAD CAD Native CAD Connector Native Metadata Advanced View & Analysis  File Conversion  Ability to convert file formats in an automated process Relative Use in Organization  Enterprise Viewing  Ability to view files and perform basic queries  Markup & Collaboration Interactive  Ability to create comments and store back into PLM in a context-specific manner Work  Advanced View & AnalysisFile Types  Ability to interact with more complex file sets, such as version compare or digital mockup Automated Process  Work Package Generation  Ability to create compound documents using existing files in PLM, such as work instructions or tech pubs Copyright © 2012 Aras.

  • 7. Key Product Data Types  Data types where a broad base of users need to see and act on the file content without the originating application  Does not include data types that are not for human consumption (NC toolpaths, object code, etc.)  Aras considers the Key Product Data Types to be: Office Scans Images Audio Video 2D 3D EDA Drawings Models ModelsDocumentation Media CADCopyright © 2012 Aras.

  • 13. Building out the Strategy  So what does the rest of Aras Visual Collaboration look like?  First of all, an open approach is required  While we focus on a preferred approach, other approaches are still possible to integrate with Aras Innovator – converters, viewers, work package tools, etc. Enterprise Markup & Viewing Markup Collaboration MS-Office Work Package Generation File Work Viewable Conversion Viewable Package CAD Native Metadata Advanced View & AnalysisCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 13 aras.com
  • 14. File Conversion  Conversion to the viewable format must be possible for all Key Data Types  The viewable format must be capable of accurately representing the source files  Ideally the viewable format should be standard, with available conversion applications or libraries Enterprise Markup & Viewing Markup Collaboration MS-Office Work Package Generation Work File Viewable Viewable Package Conversion CAD Native Metadata Advanced View & AnalysisCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 14 aras.com
  • 15. Enterprise Viewing  Enterprise Viewing must be simple to access, and support all key data types  3D viewing must be high-performance and scalable  Data format must be lightweight  Data format must be able to be represented hierarchically like 3D CAD assemblies, to avoid costly regeneration Enterprise Markup & Viewing Markup Collaboration MS-Office Work Package Generation Work File Viewable Viewable Package Conversion CAD Native Metadata Advanced View & AnalysisCopyright © 2012 Aras.

  • 16. Markup & Collaboration  Dynamic, collaborative content must be managed by Aras  Static / archived content can be resident in file  To avoid “markup demo-ware”, graphical markup is an element of a larger collaboration approach  Which leads us to… Enterprise Markup & Viewing Markup Collaboration MS-Office Work Package Generation Work File Viewable Viewable Package Conversion CAD Native Metadata Advanced View & AnalysisCopyright © 2012 Aras.

  • 17. Aras Secure Social  New Aras Secure Social strategy  These capabilities are designed to enable social capabilities throughout the platform in a PLM-centric way  This has wide application within Aras Innovator:  Discussions  Forums  Markup  Tagging  Instant messaging, history, notification, etc.Copyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 17 aras.com
  • 18. Secure Social Markup  Graphical file markup is part of Secure Social threaded discussions in an intuitive and consistent way  Create functions for markup graphics (circle, bubble, text, etc.) provided within the visual collaboration application  If a comment is made that references content in the visual collaboration application, the comment record remembers the view state of the file being viewed  When a user views a previously-made comment containing graphical markup, the visual collaboration application opens with the file and markup displayed  Context of the markup is stored (Item-specific, Change-specific, etc.)  Ability to create or view comments (and markups) is controlled by security privileges Threaded Discussion tadams Here’s the 4/2/2012 3:45:14 PM main Looks like it’s a go for the new design change… difference tadams Click to open 4/2/2012 3:48:32 PM 1 Reply Here’s the main difference graphical markup btaylor 4/2/2012 3:57:31 PM Nice. Let’s discuss more tomorrowCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 18 aras.com
  • 19. Advanced View & Analysis  Advanced View & Analysis requires tight integration between metadata and graphics:  Display metadata of selected component  Color-coding based on state  Graphical file compare  Volumetric search  Combine multiple data types together, and store the result back to Aras as re-authored content  For example, Multi-CAD Digital Mockup Enterprise Viewing Markup Markup & Collaboration MS-Office Work Package Generation Work File Viewable Viewable Package Conversion CAD Native Metadata Advanced View & AnalysisCopyright © 2012 Aras.

  • 20. Work Package Generation  By adding authoring functions within the visual collaboration application, Aras users can create derived content like Work Packages  Templates and rules automate the creation and updating of these packages, for example on revision changes  Applications include work instructions and tech pubs Enterprise Markup & Viewing Markup Collaboration MS-Office Work Package Generation Work Metadata File Conversion Viewable Viewable Package CAD Native Metadata Advanced View & AnalysisCopyright © 2012 Aras.

  • 21. Technology Review Conclusions Best support for critical product data types  PDF ISO standard  PDF Widely used and accepted within our customer base  PDF Viewable on 98% of Internet connected devices worldwide  PDF Accepted as the best solution for LOTAR  PDF The emergence of 3D PDF and its constituent PRC format makes PDF very compelling for complete management of product definition data PDF is also an excellent multi-content format, which facilitates the use case of Work Package Generation, or “derived content creation” With PDF, we can support dramatic process change with low riskCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 21 aras.com
  • 22. What is 3D PDF?  The term 3D PDF refers to the ability of the PDF format to accommodate 3D data in the form of Universal 3D (U3D) data or Product Representation Compact (PRC) data within the PDF container  Any PDF file containing 3D data generated in this format according to the specifications can be read by any currently supported version of the Acrobat Reader, with full fidelity  3D PDF was defined and developed and continues to be supported by Adobe  3D PDF is an active part of the existing PDF standardization activitiesCopyright © 2012 Aras. All Rights Reserved. Slide 22 aras.com
  • 23. 3D PDF and PRC PRC is one of the constituent 3D formats for PDF, and is itself a pending ISO standard format Compact, high-performance 3D format Supports both tessellated and precise representation Supports product structure representation Supports Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) including GD&T PRC can be maintained as single files (monolithic) or hierarchical (shattered) PRC files can be viewed directly, or imbedded in PDF Copyright © 2012 Aras.
