Aras Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP) is a new product lifecycle management (PLM) platform-based application from Aras (Andover, MA) for managing the complex business processes that extend from product development through manufacturing. New capabilities bring together the MPP, Work Instructions and Manufacturing Bill of Materials (MBOM), making them interdependent and automatically synchronized as changes occur. According to the company, this capability enables direct Engineering Bill of Materials (EBOM) to MBOM translation, bridging the gap enterprises have and creating the process foundation necessary for Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet initiatives. Additional benefits, say Aras, include letting automotive product teams eliminate time-consuming manual processes and costly EBOM/MBOM conflicts, improve efficiency by synchronizing process plans, MBOMs and work instructions, and implement a digital thread with as-designed to as-planned traceability.
