Searching for AutoVue Enhancement Requests in the My Oracle Support portal

Most users of the My Oracle Support (MOS) portal are familiar with the ability to search the knowledge base for technical articles. But did you know that the MOS portal can also be used to search for Bugs and Enhancement Requests? Here are the steps to look up all of the Enhancement Requests (ERs) that are under consideration by the AutoVue team:

  1. Log into the My Oracle Support (MOS) portal: https://support.oracle.com
  2. In the upper-right corner, beside the search field, click on ‘Advanced’ to open the Advanced Search dialog
  3. Set the Source field to “Bug Database”
  4. For the ‘Related to the Product’ field, click on the dropdown arrow, then enter ‘autovue’ in the upper-right field of the dropdown list, and click the right arrow in the upper-right corner of the dropdown list:
  5. Select all the products of interest (e.g. AutoVue Office, AutoVue 2D Professional, AutoVue 3D Professional Advanced, AutoVue EDA Professional, AutoVue Electro-Mechanical Professional), then click ‘Select’
  6. For the ‘Status Code’ field, select the status of interest. Currently this field only accepts a single choice, however a request has been submitted to the MOS team to allow multi-select. For now, here are the status codes representing ERs under consideration (which you can run as separate queries):
    • 15 – Enhancement Req. Internal (Oracle) Review
    • 21 – Cost Required, To Development
    • 22 – Approved for Future Release
    • 23 – Scheduled for Future Release

Note that the AutoVue team uses statuses 21, 22 and 23 to represent ERs that are under consideration (not yet committed, despite the naming of the status codes).

If you come across any particular ER that you would like to flag as important to your company, please submit a Service Request through the MOS portal, referencing the ER number and details regarding the importance of the feature to your business.

Optimize Supplier Collaboration without Jeopardizing Intellectual Property

Innovation has always been a key driver of competitive advantage in the technology industries. The ability to leverage innovation helps companies emerge in a stronger position than competition, gaining market shares and grabbing consumers’ attention.

Now, when talking about product innovation, one also immediately thinks of protection of critical Intellectual Property (IP). How can companies encourage more open and collaborative development, and innovate everywhere, not just within the four walls of the company without putting at risk critical intellectual property?


One of the key benefits of using AutoVue within a Product Lifecycle Management system like Oracle’s Agile PLM is that the joint solution helps optimize supplier collaboration without jeopardizing intellectual property. While the Product Lifecycle Management system allows for better management of access rights and privileges, AutoVue’s streaming file technology adds an extra layer of protection, streamlining collaboration with key outsourced partners, and allowing users to securely share and effectively communicate on product information early in the process for joint execution.


What is this streaming file technology all about, you might ask? With AutoVue’s streaming file technology, native files are rendered on the server and a stream of information is sent down to the client machine on an on-demand fashion. Essentially, it offers the advantage of providing access to the full intelligence of the document without transferring the original files, with proprietary data, to the client desktop.The, original documents never leave the server, and no local temp or cache files are created in the process, ensuring that a company’s IP remains protected in your PLM vault. The “streaming file”, which is generated as part of the process the first time you access a document in AutoVue  and which contains all the information needed to display and perform queries on the document, can also be saved to disk in order to improve performance during subsequent viewing.

Renowned companies like GLOBALFOUNDRIES have adopted AutoVue and integrated it with their Agile PLM system in order to enable more open and collaborative product development without putting key intellectual property at risk. If you want to learn more, you can watch the video interview with GLOBALFOUNDRIES by clicking here. A customer success story is also available on Oracle’s website.

Oracle’s AutoVue Enables Visual Decision Making

That old saying about a picture being worth a thousand words has never been truer.  Check out the latest reports from IDC Manufacturing Insights which highlight the importance of incorporating visual information in all facets of decision making and the role that Oracle’s AutoVue Enterprise Visualization solutions can play.

Take a look at the excerpts below and be sure to click on the titles to read the full reports.

Technology Spotlight: Optimizing the Product Life Cycle Through Visual Decision Making, August 2012

Manufacturers find it increasingly challenging to make effective product-related decisions as the result of expanded technical complexities, elongated supply chains, and a shortage of experienced workers. These factors challenge the traditional methodologies companies use to make critical decisions. However, companies can improve decision making by the use of visual decision making, which synthesizes information from multiple sources into highly usable visual context and integrates it with existing enterprise applications such as PLM and ERP systems. Product-related information presented in a visual form and shared across communities of practice with diverse roles, backgrounds, and job skills helps level the playing field for collaboration across business functions, technologies, and enterprises. Visual decision making can contribute to manufacturers making more effective product-related decisions throughout the complete product life cycle. This Technology Spotlight examines these trends and the role that Oracle's AutoVue and its Augmented Business Visualization (ABV) solution play in this strategic market.

Analyst Connection: Using Visual Decision Making to Optimize Manufacturing Design and Development, September 2012

In today's environments, global manufacturers are managing a broad range of information. Data is often scattered across countless files throughout the product life cycle, generated by different applications and platforms. Organizations are struggling to utilize these multidisciplinary sources in an optimal way. Visual decision making is a strategy and technology that can address this challenge by integrating and widening access to digital information assets. Integrating with PLM and ERP tools across engineering, manufacturing, sales, and marketing, visual decision making makes digital content more accessible to employees and partners in the supply chain. The use of visual decision-making information rendered in the appropriate business context and shared across functional teams contributes to more effective product-related decision making and positively impacts business performance.
