aPriori v6.5 Expands Market Coverage with Support for Oracle and Additional CAD System Support

CONCORD, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 20, 2009 aPriori today announced the availability of aPriori v6.5, the newest version of its market-leading Product Cost Management software platform. With innovative capabilities that provide real-time, predictive and precise product cost assessments, aPriori v6.5 empowers manufacturing organizations to significantly reduce product costs by identifying quantifiable savings in material, tooling, labor and overhead while evaluating alternative designs, processes and sources.

“aPriori is designed to provide all people across an enterprise with instant visibility into how their everyday decisions affect cost – including engineering, design, sourcing and manufacturing organizations,” said Jeremy Rishel, Chief Technology Officer at aPriori. “Companies that have grown through acquisition, or companies within industries that have extended supply chains often utilize two or more CAD tools. With support for an additional database and new 3D CAD formats aPriori v6.5 can be leveraged by a larger population of individuals within our customer organizations to achieve their product cost targets and spend reduction goals.”

Shown below is a summary of the new features and applications available with aPriori’s newest release of software:

- Oracle – In aPriori 6.5, database support is extended to Oracle in addition to mySQL. Customers now have a choice of deploying aPriori on either mySQL or on Oracle 11g.

 

- Expanded CAD Cost Connector Support - aPriori 6.5 supported 3D CAD file formats now include:

 

- Solidworks® Support – Parts and assemblies created in SolidWorks 2008 or 2007 releases can now be opened and cost in aPriori directly from a file, without accessing the CAD application.

 

- Autodesk® Inventor® Support – Parts and assemblies created in Inventor 2009 or 2008 releases can now be opened and cost in aPriori directly from a file, without accessing the CAD application.

 

- STEP Import – Parts exported as STEP files can now be opened and cost in aPriori directly from a file, without accessing the CAD application

 

- Deep Bill-of-Materials Support – aPriori now supports display and navigation of the fully indented bill of material (BOM). For an assembly, there are now two user selectable views, an indented BOM view and a component list view.

 

- VPE Creator Application - Complementing the enhanced Virtual Production Environment (VPE) Maintenance Tool in 6.5, aPriori is offering a new VPE Creator Application. The aPriori VPE Creator allows customers to easily create copies of their own VPEs or aPriori Baseline VPEs and model different variations in labor rates, material rates or machine configurations.
