Aras Corporation

Aras PLM works for our company, yet I don't have experience with any other software system. The system does not refresh and update quickly. Often times users need to force a refresh or logout and logon to verify changes and updates. The Lock and Unlock feature needs getting used to.

Oracle

Oracle Agile is great for companies that need a way to manage their products and work with various resources in their department from developers, to PMs and UX designers. This is a great way to keep track of feature requests and shippable versions of the product. Implementation and user friendlessness is an issue with this tool so companies that have the budget for consulting or for additional resources to help implement and maintain will need those resources as it is necessary. Training resources should also be factored in by any institution wishing to implement this.

Oracle

  • We can constantly change the structure of our project in use depending on our need to show only some areas of the job at the moment, and there are no problems with it.
  • There is a tool designed for failover, which helps to keep the job without constant losses, leaving us with an infrastructure secure enough to give us confidence in our work.

Cons

Aras Corporation

  • Aras PLM uses terms and labels that can be confusing like Subsystem / Subsystem Version, Project Record Number (PRN). Companies need to understand these terms and develop business processes to set user standards.
  • I personally use Aras PLM to manage information technology project documents. In my opinion, Aras PLM is more geared to product and engineering. I would like to see a general project management Aras PLM version with terms and labels that I am familiar with.
  • The description field should be made required. Many of our engineers have created records and left that blank because it was not required. This would help with the context or background of each record.

Oracle

  • This program was not meant to be used for training, too many errors and not all actions are kept in the audit history trail.
  • Some search criteria does not work, random results generated.
  • Program checks out when overloaded, errors occur more frequent than we want.

      Our company developed numerous IBM Lotus Notes databases to perform document control. Aras PLM is the better choice to IBM Notes databases and home grown databases.

      We did not evaluate other software because Oracle Agile PLM was highly recommended by our Board of Directors. We knew of another company that used it with favorable results and felt it would help us in our management of the manufacturing process.
