Likelihood to Recommend

HyperWorks

Engineering firms and companies with needs for multiple disciplines of analysis capabilities on a regular basis will benefit from HyperWorks. Companies with short term engineering needs (less than 6 months) or who only need a particular analysis/simulation discipline may be better off using a consultant (who likely uses HyperWorks).

Oracle Agile PLM

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 Agile PLM

  • User access is easy to change for all users, there is no hassle when someone switches departments or leaves/joins the company.
  • Custom searches make it easy to find documents or records, global for the whole company and custom personal searches are available.
  • Objects are easy to connect through relationships tab and BOM, makes it easier to see what is affected when a change is made.

Cons

HyperWorks

  • User interface is improving, but not always intuitive; varies across tools
  • Steep learning curve
  • Cost may be out of reach for some, but relatively inexpensive if you need all the tools it includes (vs. paying for each tool individually)

Oracle Agile PLM

  • The overview page is dated as this UI has been in the works for many years - a very 'engineering dashboard'
  • Unable to copy, paste, and modify workflows . Need to create from scratch
  • Ongoing support for Oracle Agile is in question with the movement to Cloud technologies

Alternatives Considered

HyperWorks

HyperWorks is far more capable than SOLIDWORKS Simulation offering more simulation solutions for more accurate analysis. The solvers are also more efficient so you get results faster and reduce time to market.

Oracle Agile PLM

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.

Return on Investment

HyperWorks

  • An all in one solution keeps costs down if you need multiple analysis capabilities (FEA, CFD, MBD, etc.)
  • Analysis work supports our other engineering/design work we wouldn't otherwise receive
  • Fast and efficient solvers leads to higher throughput

Oracle Agile PLM

  • For us, Oracle Agile PLM did what we purchased it for: it streamlined our product lifecycle management
  • The unexpected thing was that it took 6 months from the start of the implementation to release.
  • The user adoption did not match our expectation: due to extensive training needs and the complexity of the tool, some users still don't use it
