The traditional government-sponsored Aerospace & Defense industry which landed man on the moon and brought low-cost global travel to the public, is undergoing disruptive change. Commercial startups, often beginning as SPAC’s (Special Purpose Acquisition Companies), are redefining space transportation even before they have a business model. Funded by investors on the strength of an idea, these companies are often formed by the best engineers with decades of experience at traditional A&D companies. The challenge is to create working prototypes while still forming the company and without corporate best practices to guide engineering processes. It’s chaos guided by a shared end goal. Enter Duro. Duro is a next generation Cloud-Native PLM solution to aid engineering collaboration in exactly these situations.
What Duro delivers for Aerospace and Defense Companies
Today’s A&D industry relies heavily upon suppliers. Supply-chain-centric design processes mean all parties must confront incompatible IT systems, Tools, and Processes. Enter Duro, the next-generation Cloud-Native PLM solution to aid engineering collaboration in exactly these situations. Duro may be enabled in hours not weeks or months and is both flexible and scalable.
Duro offers complete traceability of product information from supplier-sourced components in spreadsheets or e-catalogs, through to final released products. Alerts signal if information is outdated so users can make corrections, “Roll-Back” can restore a previous version. Duro’s Traceability helps companies satisfy both internal engineering processes plus Federal regulatory requirements.
Duro’s deep integrations with tools, e-catalogs and systems ensure an uninterrupted Digital Thread. Duro provides common integrations to mCAD/eCAD, ERP, e-catalogs, and desktop Office, all Out-of-the-Box. A RESTful API allows users to configure other integrations. Event triggers using webhooks send notifications to adjacent systems, thus automating the Digital Thread.
Agile Team Collaboration
Duro helps engineers be more productive; frees up time to get more done. Emulating a Git Workflow paradigm used in the software industry where unstructured workflows are typical, Duro helps engineering teams collaborate easily. A Change Order may be initiated by an engineer then shared immediately with chosen stakeholder peers, for example.
