    Whats Wrong with Visualization

    The current state-of-the-market for visual collaboration falls short in several areas:

    Undue focus on 3D above all else

    Fragmented support for different data types

    Reliance on proprietary formats and de-facto standards

    Can view and markup, but cant re-format and re-combine content for downstream use

    Markup is mostly demo-ware

    Social, collaborative capabilities with no product linkage

    Key Product Data Types

    Data types where a broad base of users need to see and act on the file content without the originating application

    Does not include data types that are not for human consumption (NC toolpaths, object code, etc.)

    Aras considers the Key Product Data Types to be:

    Building out the Strategy

    So what does the rest of Aras Visual Collaboration look like?

    First of all, an open approach is required

    While we focus on a preferred approach, other approaches are still possible to integrate with Aras Innovator converters, viewers, work package tools, etc.

    File Conversion

    Conversion to the viewable format must be possible for all Key Data Types

    The viewable format must be capable of accurately representing the source files

    Ideally the viewable format should be standard, with available conversion applications or libraries

    Enterprise Viewing

    Enterprise Viewing must be simple to access, and support all key data types

    3D viewing must be high-performance and scalable

    Data format must be lightweight

    Data format must be able to be represented hierarchically like 3D CAD assemblies, to avoid costly regeneration

    Markup & Collaboration

    Dynamic, collaborative content must be managed by Aras

    Static / archived content can be resident in file

    To avoid markup demo-ware, graphical markup is an element of a larger collaboration approach

    Which leads us to
