Toshiba, Aras partner on low-code IoT software

The software will help facilitate digital twin technologies and strategies in manufacturing

Aras Corp., an Andover, Mass.-based developer of low-code engineering and manufacturing software, is partnering with Toshiba Digital Solutions.

The partnership will see Aras’ Innovator platform integrated with Toshiba’s Meister software, an IoT solution for the manufacturing sector that collects data and connects with factories to help companies reap the benefits of digital twin technology.

The combination will provide end-to-end product lifecycle management, from requirements and engineering, to manufacturing and operation. The low-code approach will be scalable and fully customizable and quickly respond to rapidly changing business operations and organizational needs.

“Customer requirements are becoming increasingly complex as the manufacturing industry continues to undergo digital transformation. Working with Toshiba Digital Solutions will enable us to bring our expertise and innovative approaches to more customers as we expand our company’s footprint in Japan,” said Masahiko Hisatsugu, president of Aras Japan.
