Arena Solutions Founder/CTO Offers Valuable Insight on Optimizing Design for Outsourced Manufacturin
Foster City, Calif., Jan 8 - Arena Solutions, the leading provider of on-demand product lifecycle management (PLM) software for manufacturers of all sizes, today announced that Eric Larkin, the company
Larkin's session is designed for those in engineering and IT as well as others who wish to gain greater control of their current design and manufacturing process, learn about PLM and its applicability to company and individual success. Attendees will leave the session clearly understanding the reasons for following their design from release, to manufacturing, to obsolescence, knowing who uses their design data, and why they should care. In addition, Larkin will discuss how early and efficient collaboration with manufacturing and sourcing functions is necessary to meet product cost and time-to-market goals.
Conference attendees may also connect with Arena Solutions' PLM experts during SolidWorks WORLD at booth #343 in the Partner Pavilion. A stop at Arena's booth may challenge conventional wisdom about PLM, as visitors learn how SaaS-based PLM—which is faster, easier and more cost-effective than traditional client/server PLM—can be used to release, manage, and communicate a "single version of product truth" throughout the enterprise and with outsourced suppliers.
"Over 70 percent of Arena PLM users have already realized that Arena PLM and SolidWorks are a great combination for managing the design through manufacturing process," said Eric Larkin, chief technology officer and co-founder, Arena Solutions. "We are looking forward to sharing our capabilities with the rest of the SolidWorks community, especially with regard to how they can increase their effectiveness with new product introductions (NPI) and further streamline their design through manufacturing processes."
