The technical data exchange is an essential part of the work in extended enterprise either between two partner manufacturers or between manufacturer and supplier. PDM/PLM solutions are, in general, different from one company to another, which makes the use of neutral formats and standards indispensable.
In addition, each manufacturer has its own coding:
In the end, data transfers are often done “manually”, the costs associated with considering multiple PLM environments are very high, the migration of a database leads to conversion problems and data integrity may be compromised due to the inability of converters to translate properly certain information such as part or component names.
The result is a great need to define common rules or mapping to better organize this type of exchange. This is all the more necessary as the management of product diversity and associated configurations is growing.
It is therefore proposed that a working party be set up in accordance with the diagram below. Its aim will be to accelerate collaboration between partners by exchanging classification data easily and quickly.
This topic was also launched by the Japanese Automotive Manufacturers and bilateral discussions have resulted in this project becoming an SASIG working group.
