A VIEW-BASED MODELING APPROACH FOR REPRESENTING MULTIDISCIPLINARY FUNCTIONS IN PDM SYSTEMS
The challenges of today’s competitive business contexts drive enterprises to guarantee their customers permanent product innovations which is nowadays stimulated by the application of multidisciplinary solution principles. Therefore, means have to be provided to cope with the associated complexity. From a PLM perspective, the most troublesome gaps to bridge are the synchronisation of disparate product data and related processes. This paper outlines concepts for a view-based modelling approach using the example of multidisciplinary product functions as well as their prototypical implementation.
