Gain visibility into the right information at the right time

IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization – Integration Adapter for Aras Innovator is a web application that integrates and establishes two-way communications between IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) applications and Aras Innovator. Using the adapter, Aras Innovator administrators can establish friend relationships between servers and associate projects in ELM applications. The solution enables Aras Innovator users to work easily across products.


Consolidates data silos

Integrates ALM and PLM systems to create a single digital thread throughout the engineering lifecycle.

Shows artifact relationships

Uncovers relationships between different versions, components and sub-components of ALM and PLM systems for root cause and impact analysis of quality issues.

Supports change management

Provides change management across ALM and PLM systems to align deliverables within the product development process.

Supports bi-directional linking

Creates bi-directional links to and from Aras Innovator as well as to and from IBM Engineering Workflow Management and Engineering Requirements Management DOORS® Next.

Uses open standards

Provides OSLC linking capability, optimized for IBM Engineering Workflow Management and Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next to give you flexibility across diverse tool chains.

Customizable to fit your process

Enables you to customize easily to match the workflow of your business.

Product Features: Bridge the gap between hardware and software

Integration instead of silos

Supports a top-down, holistic view rather than a bottom-up assembly of parts. IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management is an open platform that helps teams collaborate across silos. This creates visibility and transparency, enabling you to avoid waste, delays and late discovery of problems.

Federated change management

Provides a federated data approach, through OSLC, allowing users to coordinate changes across multiple project contributors. Roll feedback from teams and customers into your integrated change management process.

Integrated requirements management

Helps you ensure products are up to date with regulations across software and hardware components. Stay compliant, and respond quickly to new and changing requirements.

Digital twin enablement

Links data across systems engineering development, allowing you to manage the full digital thread and twin across engineering, manufacturing, operations and maintenance. Gain visibility and traceability across your supply chain, and control access and customization.
