Arena 2014 Fall Release Now Available
Focused on Enabling Customers to Speed Time to Market, the Arena 2014 Fall Release Includes Two New Products, Arena Scribe and Arena DataExtract, and Significant Enhancements to Arena Quality
Foster City, Calif., Oct 29 - Arena Solutions, the pioneer of cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) applications, today announced the immediate availability of its Fall 2014 release. This new release includes new products, Arena Scribe and Arena DataExtract, as well as significant enhancements to Arena Quality. These newly available products will speed customers’ time to market by enabling real-time communication and providing a fast, efficient tool for extracting process data from Arena PLM to an OEM’s analytic tools.
Arena Scribe gives customers an easy-to-use collaboration platform that enables comment and collaboration in the context of each individual process or record in Arena PLM. The design and manufacturing team can collaborate with one another and with any number of suppliers with all conversations captured, eliminating the need to search through an endless string of disparate email threads to unearth information from a previous exchange.
Arena DataExtract enables customers to extract all process data to a standard flat file format, which can be analyzed using a variety of analytic tools. With this data, customers can identify trends, solve problems and find efficiencies that had previously remained hidden.
Finally, the Arena Fall 2014 release includes significant enhancements to Arena Quality, a module released earlier this year that brings visibility, cross-functional team collaboration, and long-term tracking of quality resolutions directly into the product record so that everyone, from OEM team members to the extended supply chain, can participate in the quality process.
“In today’s fast-paced marketplace, product companies and their ever growing network of suppliers must collaborate effectively to resolve issues quickly,” said Steve Chalgren, vice president of product management and strategy at Arena. “Confusion creates delays and increases scrap and rework, which can result in late releases and lost revenue. Our Fall Release will give customers tools to collaborate transparently and efficiently within their own organizations and with their supply chain, and to access the data they need to analyze trends and identify hidden efficiencies.”
