Designed for advanced viewing of complex product structures, the Alternative Structure Browser creates an interactive graphical representation of the Bill of Materials (BOM) with advanced visualization.
Aras now offers Alternative Structure Browser for Large Assemblies, an add-on solution for the Aras Innovator PLM platform. Developed by Aras gold certified partner Minerva of France, the Alternative Structure Browser creates an interactive graphical representation of the Bill of Materials (BOM) with visualization and navigation capabilities within Aras. The company says the Alternative Structure Browser is ideal for companies with large electro-mechanical product structures such as aircraft, automobiles, ships and sophisticated industrial equipment.
Aras users may use the Alternative Structure Browser to zoom in and out on complex product structures, as well as drag and drop the structure nodes to re-orient the data for optimal viewing. Users click on a node (i.e. Part, Drawing, CAD model or other item) to view the related description and all the associated properties. A simple click also enables users to drill down to the part master, document or whatever the item being viewed deep in the structure. User security is controlled so individuals can only see and access the data and files for which they have permission. The Alternative Structure Browser leverages the Cytoscape Web graph library, an open source platform for visualizing complex networks and integrating attribute data.
