Partnership designed to enable better processes and data management of simulations for digital thread traceability across the lifecycle.

Aras announces a strategic partnership with ANSYS that includes the licensing of the Aras platform technology to enable the next generation of digital engineering practices, the companies report.

ANSYS will leverage the underlying Aras platform technologies such as configuration management, PDM/PLM (product data management/product lifecycle management) interoperability, application program interface integration and add simulation-specific capabilities to deliver scalable and configurable products that connect simulation and optimization to the business of engineering.

ANSYS is leveraging Aras’ platform services combined with its simulation domain expertise and technology for new product offerings to improve productivity and maximize business value from simulation investments. ANSYS will deliver commercial offerings for simulation process and data management, process integration, design optimization and simulation-driven data science.

“With our open ecosystem approach, this unique collaboration combines the strengths of ANSYS’ industry-leading multiphysics portfolio and the resilient platform from Aras for digital connectivity to dramatically enhance customer value,” says Navin Budhiraja, vice president of cloud and platform business unit, ANSYS. “As simulation technologies impact every product decision, we see the ability of ANSYS solutions to interoperate and link with heterogeneous systems as an important step to accelerate the digital transformation for our customers.”

“We believe that simulation is essential to developing tomorrow’s next generation products, and that better data and process management of simulations is required to enable the digital processes of the future which will support these products,” says Peter Schroer, president and CEO, Aras. “We see the ANSYS and Aras partnership as a potential game changer in connecting simulation to engineering processes for traceability, access and reuse across the product lifecycle.”
