Aras®, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle
Management (PLM) software, today announced the company will present with
Carlisle Brake & Friction at the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’
Smart Manufacturing events in Detroit. Taking place May 24, Aras joins
Ford, Cummins, Boeing, General Electric and others for the one day “Digital
Transformations” seminar dedicated to smart manufacturing technologies that
connect design, planning, production and distribution to drive process
improvements, reduce operational costs and increase efficiencies.

The presentation by Doug Macdonald, Product Marketing Director of Aras and
Carlisle Brake and Friction’s Isaiah Kincaid, Electrical and Computer
Engineer, is entitled “Transforming the Launch Process for New Products.”
The presentation highlights a new approach to supporting manufacturing
engineering by creating the first set of fully connected applications. Real
world scenarios show the benefits that can be achieved today through faster
