Advent of “connected world”
Use your smartphone to make payments and settlements.
Remote monitoring of equipment without human intervention.
Update the software via the Internet and improve the function. We already live in a world where various things (physical space) and digital (virtual space) merge, and we are experiencing new services provided by connected things and digital.
This new reality is being realized today as Society 5.0, also called the “connected world”.
Society 5.0 is the vision of the future society that Japan should aim for, which was decided by the Cabinet Office as the 5th Science and Technology Basic Plan in 2016. This vision advocated a human-centered society that achieves both economic development and the resolution of social issues by highly integrating digital virtual space and physically realized real space.
Under such social changes, “manufacturing” itself needs to change in order to provide “things (products)” that meet the needs of consumers. Expanding Possibilities of PLM
A PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) system is the optimal digital platform for supporting manufacturing in the connected world. A PLM system allows you to build a digital thread throughout the product lifecycle. It also allows more stakeholders from different fields to participate in the PLM system to keep the information fresh. In manufacturing in the Society 5.0 era, where the requirements for things are becoming more complex, the role of PLM systems that can build digital threads is more important as an information
infrastructure that conveys necessary information to those who need it.
This book clarifies the dilemma that the manufacturing industry currently faces as how manufacturing should be in the Society 5.0 era, and then explains the elements for building a PLM system necessary to realize the digital engineering demanded by the times.
At the same time, we have developed an open software strategy cultivated through the provision of Aras Innovator, a PLM system from Aras Corporation in the United States, and a subscription business model that achieves a win-win relationship with customers, which is necessary in the DX era. We will also introduce how Aras has succeeded in this new business model, as well as its efforts and know-how. Revealing the secret that led to the success of the new business model required in the DX era!
The author of this book is Mr. Kuji, president of Aras Japan LLC. The author, who has realized continuously transforming PLM systems such as open software strategies and subscriptions that realize win-win with customers, will introduce the secrets to succeeding in the business model required in the DX era.
This is a must-read book for those involved in manufacturing in the future, such as business people working in manufacturing sites and managers who want to promote DX.
