The Challenge

As an organization dealing with electronics manufacturing and software development, it is crucial for Malvern Panalytical to find a platform that complies with those work processes and has the flexibility and reconfigurability to cover all their specific requirements.

The system should be able to structure all their data and track all modifications of documents in real-time. Visibility and clarity of the internal information flow between all facilities of Malvern Panalytical is an essential requirement.


  1. Decentralized data storage
  2. Huge amount of unstructured data
  3. Heavy overall data searching process leading to use of older versions of files

Malvern Panalytical

About The Customer

Malvern Panalytical makes scientific instruments and offers services that help their customer examine the fundamental chemical and physical structure of their products.

Malvern Panalytical provides materials and biophysical characterization technology and expertise that enables scientists and engineers to understand and control the properties of dispersed materials.

The Solution

Initially aimed at document handling, Aras Innovator is now also being used to store drawings for parts. With around 300 daily users, Aras is gradually becoming a knowledge database—a central information hub for not only engineers and developers.

The high level of reconfigurability comes in handy, as Malvern Panalytical is considering migrating data from Aras into Microsoft SharePoint® and ERP-system SAP—bringing R&D and manufacturing closer together. Interdepartmental integration is key to a leaner, more responsive, and more efficient organization.

Operational Impact
  • [Process Optimization - Centralized Monitoring]

    Malvern Panalytical have an improved workflow because of better access to information. All important data is stored in one central location, creating more efficient work routines, allowing people to spend less time searching for documents, and providing a tool managers to use to check project status.
