  • Arena > Target System


Creating quality products in this fast-paced world isn’t easy. Your product processes involve multiple teams, locations, partners, suppliers, and vendors. These dispersed teams must work from the same design, stay on budget, and respond to customer demands. You want to deliver better products, faster and easier. And you want to create innovative solutions to change the world. Innovative product companies use Arena to drive their product development processes through the entire product lifecycle. And they leverage Expandable® ERP to plan and execute manufacturing processes to deliver innovative products to market. When these systems are integrated, operations can be confident
they are using the latest released bill of materials (BOMs) and item master to procure, manufacture, and ship high quality products to customers. This integration accelerates new product introduction while reducing expenses, increasing profitability, and speeding time to market.

The Arena–Expandable ERP Integration automates the process of transferring product record information from Arena to Expandable ERP, avoiding errors and ensuring Expandable ERP is up to date.

  • Arena ERP Exchange is configured and scheduled to export product record information (BOM, ECO, and item master) when an ECO is released
  • ERP Exchange packages the affected product record into a PDX package (XML format)
  • The Expandable adapter receives the PDX package, validates, and updates it in Expandable ERP


  • Time to Market: Streamlines the transfer of product record information to ERP
  • Cost Reduction: Eliminates errors and inefficiencies associated with manual data entry, allowing impacted business users to focus on more strategic core competencies
  • Flexibility: Supports custom properties and future effectivities
  • Rapid Integration: Easy to configure and deploy


  • Integration provides enterprise-wide access to the most current engineering data including: BOM, Vendor Part, and Item Master data
  • Automated Integration: When a product is released in Arena, the Arena Expandable ERP Integration transfers the product record information automatically without user intervention. This eliminates delays and errors in data synchronization between Arena and Expandable ERP.
  • No Code: Designed for easy configuration and troubleshooting. No coding is needed. Custom mappings control precisely what information flows between Arena and Expandable ERP.
  • Validation, Audit Trail, and Error Management: An audit trail records change orders and product record transfer success and failure. The Arena–Expandable ERP Integration monitors status and sends alerts to a designated administrator on error. The administrator can fix the error and reprocess updates without corrupting the ERP system.
