Integrated Project Management


Aras VPLM seamlessly connects parts, BOMs, CAD documents, drawings, suppliers and other items into the project plan as deliverables & milestones for team collaboration, and provides project portfolio management dashboards for visibility.

  • Project collaboration workspace enables secure, online team participation and email alerts notify cross-functional team members of responsibilities and deadlines
  • PLM Items are integrated directly into projects as deliverables and milestones with associated schedules, durations and deadlines to achieve better schedule performance
  • As activities occur, actual work status is rolled-up to automatically update the project portfolio dashboard enabling project teams to focus on activities and deliverables instead of wasting time preparing status updates
  • Red-yellow-green traffic light indicators highlight project schedules that are ‘at risk' and provide executive visibility with the ability to drill down to details and take action
  • The ability to define and run multiple standardized stage-gate processes with associated deliverables and milestones achieves consistent new product development & launch (NPDI) across different product lines
  • Configurable project templates enable users to set-up and initiate projects quickly for ETO / BTO / CTO environments
  • Gantt charts, reports and dashboards provide the ability to plan and manage projects effectively
