Andover, Mass.—June 8, 2012—Aras, an enterprise open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solution provider, announced that Devon, United Kingdom-based SUB10 Systems Ltd., a provider of millimeter wave (MMW) wireless Ethernet bridges, selected the Aras PLM solution suite combined with Minerva’s Electronic and High-Tech (EHT) solution to improve collaboration, streamline development processes and drive product configuration management across the enterprise.
“At Minerva, we’ve applied our 10 years of experience implementing PLM solutions specifically for the electronic industry into a solution that combines advanced technology with an open source business model to enable companies such as SUB10 Systems to get their PLM projects up and running quickly and cost-effectively with minimal risk,” said Leon Lauritsen, Director at Minerva.
To accelerate implementation and leverage industry best practices, the company will implement Minerva’s Electronic and High-Tech solution for Aras Innovator.
Sub10 Systems specializes in the design, development and manufacturing of the Liberator and Dominator brands of wireless, MMW point-to-point links. Liberator high speed wireless data links deliver line-of sight connections using MMW over distance of up to one kilometer. Designed for use in urban locations, the compact links are smaller than an iPad and offer lower cost provisioning, installation and operation.
“We considered other PLM solutions developed for the electronic industry but selected Minerva’s EHT solution on top of Aras because it gives us a lot of functionality, proven best practices and industry knowledge, along with reduced implementation time,” said Nick Redfern, NPI Manager at SUB10 Systems Ltd.
