  5. 5. Aras Converter FrameworkCurrent situation Aras Innovator is a framework with existing solutions for Document Management and CAD File Management. There are many ready-to-use and customer-specific integrations for Microsoft Office and several CAD Systems, but there is no standard capability to convert files within Aras Innovator. All process dependent users, such as sales, manufacturing, project managers need expensive software and licenses to access CAD, MS Word, MS Project and other files. Each company using Aras Innovator must create its own solution for file conversions. => Why waste time and money on own implementations ?Information – confidental – Jens Rollenmüller T-Systems / PLM 15.12.2010 5
