BOM Management

Arena manages complex assemblies that include mechanical components, electrical components, software, and documentation. With Arena’s intelligent BOM management solution, everyone can be confident they are always working on the right revision.


Collaboration Solutions

Trusted partners can participate in your change and quality processes as approvers, initiators, implementers, or any other role they provide to your business. Arena’s access policies let you enable collaboration quickly and maintain it easily for tens or hundreds of partners.


Document Management

Providing your team members instant, controlled access to documents streamlines your critical processes. Without proper version control documentation for all business functions, people spend too much time working off the wrong data and re-creating existing data.


Change Management

With Arena, you can create, route, track, and release engineering changes quickly and effectively. Change processes are accelerated with automated routings based on specified criteria including change types, priorities, product lines, and other key attributes. Reviewers receive instant notification.


Item Management

Managing items in Arena provides clarity around your product design. Arena structures part and document information into a complete and accurate item record because detailed item management is also important to accurately configure your hierarchal bill of materials (BOM) structures.


Project Management

Project progress can be tracked through customizable phases with assignable milestones and tasks. Referencing links to items, changes, files, requests, and even other Arena projects gives users the ability to confirm task completion by seeing direct updates to the product record in context.


Demand Analysis

Arena Demand enables OEM’s to see their aggregate usage of both low and high-cost components, quickly and easily. Now OEMs can find, track, roll-up, and count even the most inexpensive components, turning pennies into dollars – and in some volumes – millions.


Enterprise Integration

Arena’s application programming interface (API) helps streamline new product introduction (NPI) processes by simplifying integration to upstream or downstream systems (e.g. ERP, CAD, CRM). You can create your own integration or leverage any of our many existing integrations.


Quality Management

Completely integrated with Arena PLM records and processes to ensure engineers, manufacturing, quality and supply chain teams have in-context visibility to all quality issues as they design, review, improve, and build your products. Specifically, it enables companies to create and better meet their regulatory standards.
