Announcing New Version of Agile Customer Needs Management Now Available

 

Agile Customer Needs Management 1.2 on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud

We’re pleased to announce the general availability of the newest release from our best-in-breed PLM suite of applications: Agile Customer Needs Management (CNM) 1.2.  It is now available on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud for download. 

As companies strive to execute well on customer focused and / or innovation-fueled strategies, they often turn to professional technology solutions to help them capture, vet, and calibrate product ideas, features and requirements. Agile Customer Needs Management (CNM) is focused on the initial phases of the product innovation process. The solution provides a collaborative environment designed to:

  1. Aggregate ideas from multiple sources
  2. Invite a team of experts to enrich and vet selected ideas to determine the best investments
  3. Draft and approve product requirements
  4. Promote requirements to the product record

With Agile CNM, product owners and product managers can optimally deliver the right products to their targeted markets and achieve customer desires.  The new release focuses on integration, user experience, and performance providing:

  • Web services to integrate CNM with external systems such as CRM or Call Center applications to collect the incoming funnel of ideas
  • One click promotion of Requirements to Agile’s Product Record
  • Add references to Problem Reports from Product Quality Management and Price Details from Product Cost Management
  • The extension of type ahead and search for Customer and Product Line fields
  • Notifications for send for review, add team member and add comment
  • Improved performance, scalability and clustering support
  • Internationalization and localization support for Chinese (simplified and traditional), Korean, Japanese, French, German, Russian

AutoVue 20.1.1 for Agile now Available

Originally published by Angus Graham on Dec 13, 2011. Link

Oracle’s AutoVue 20.1.1 for Agile PLM is now available on Oracle’s Software Delivery Cloud. This latest release allows Agile PLM customers to take advantage of new AutoVue 20.1.1 features in the following Agile PLM environments (9.3.1.x; 9.3.0.x; 9.2.2.4+).

AutoVue 20.1.1 has several improvements, but I'd like to highlight 3 areas that will be important for Agile customers.

New Format Support: AutoVue 20.1.1 adds support for the latest versions of popular file formats including:

  • AutoCAD 2012
  • AutoCAD Mechanical 2012
  • Inventor 2012
  • Unigraphics NX7 and NX7.5
  • Adobe Acrobat 10

PDF Improvements:

PDF is one of the most popular formats being used by Agile customers today. It is used as an archival format, as well as a publishing standard for design information, manufacturing instructions, customer requirements, and safety and regulatory information.

AutoVue 20.1.1 has improved the viewing of PDF files with better navigation and zooming behaviour by providing more intuitive zoom levels while searching, switching pages, or moving between markups in a PDF file. 

Converting CAD designs to PDF is a common practice for many Agile customers. AutoVue 20.1.1 provides greater flexibility with PDF measurements by introducing snapping measurements. If a CAD design has been converted to a vector-based PDF, AutoVue 20.1.1 can take accurate measurements from the PDF, by snapping to points and shapes in the design. This unlocks the valuable data contained in the file and provides more information to people on the shop floor.

AutoVue 20.1.1 adds the ability to select, copy, and paste text from PDF files, improving the efficiency with which feedback can be delivered. During reviews, requirements and regulations can now be copied and pasted directly into markups, providing further explanation behind the decisions being made.

Improved Troubleshooting and Stability:

AutoVue 20.1.1 includes improvements to the stability, reliability, and server uptime for users by facilitating the identification, logging, and quarantine of problematic files on a server. For example, if the server crashes, the administrator is provided with a list of all files that were open on the server at the time of the crash. Doing this greatly reduces the amount of time admins need to spend tracking down these files and once found, they can restrict file access so that no further crashes will be caused.

For further details, check out the What’s New in AutoVue 20.1.1 datasheet.
