Replace Legacy PLM to
Optimize and Accelerate Performance for Large-Scale
Independent Testing Verifies
Aras Next Generation PLM Outperforms Leading Legacy
PLM and Loads CATIA 81% Faster.
you’re looking to optimize performance across the
enterprise, there’s no better place to focus than PLM
starting with CAD file management. And if you are a
CATIA user, you’ve likely experienced the frustration
of slow performance when managing these large, complex
files on a daily basis. You are not alone.
Performance is a very real challenge
that global companies face with legacy PLM systems.
Organizations are frequently forced to spend valuable
resources and time to improve PLM performance, and are
often unable to achieve meaningful improvements.
Performance issues become particularly acute when a
business has complex processes and is using a legacy
PLM system for CAD data management, as the total size
of files and metadata continue to increase
recent independent report by T-Systems International
documents the actual, validated performance
improvements achieved when a legacy PLM system for
managing CATIA was replaced with Aras.
During a client project, a series of different real
world assembly structures were identified, analyzed
and used as reference cases. The file size of the CAD
data varied between 50 and 450 MB — depending on the
volume and complexity of the CAD structure — including
test scenarios focused on the loading procedure of
large assembly structures (with over 1000 CAD objects)
into the design mode of CATIA V5.
Aras Innovator outperformed the legacy
PLM system in every test.
Aras’s speed ranged from 41% to 81%
faster, performing better on larger assemblies. On the two
largest assembles, the legacy system failed to load the
files even after several attempts while Aras loaded the
assemblies quickly. What’s more, Aras achieved these
results with 1/3 the IT hardware resources of the legacy
Aras provides powerful PLM
technology to leading companies around the world.
