Arena has introduced four new solutions in its PLM suite: Arena Demand, Arena Projects, Arena Exchange, and Arena API as part of its Fall 2013 release.
"This Fall 2013 release delivers fundamentally new and unique PLM and supply chain solutions to all our highly innovative customers," said Craig Livingston, Arena CEO. "The four solutions that are incorporated in this release address some of the most important manufacturing challenges of our time, giving our customers more tools to succeed in an increasingly competitive global marketplace."
Arena Demand provides manufacturers with part visibility to calculate aggregated component needs for their entire product portfolio so they can better negotiate with their suppliers and contract manufacturers. Arena Projects connects the project schedule directly to the product record to increase visibility and accountability for new product introductions, quality improvement processes, and cost reduction projects.
Arena Exchange offers OEMs a flexible and traceable environment for collaboration with multiple users at different supplier levels throughout their global supply chain, while Arena API expands the information value chain captured in Arena PLM by allowing customers to develop flexible integrations from their enterprise application infrastructure to Arena PLM.
