Abstract

As the processing and management of engineering data and workflows have become one of the
biggest challenges in industry, a need has emerged for including PDM and PLM (Product Data
management and Product Lifecycle Management) into mechanical engineering programs at
universities.
This paper describes the concept of PLM education at RWTH Aachen University, entailing a project
called ProVerStand (“Produktentwicklung über Verteilte Standorte” - “Product Development
Involving Distributed Locations”) initiated by the Chair and Institute for Engineering Design (ikt). The
aim of this initiative is to provide universities and similar institutions access to state of the art PLM
systems, such as PDMS, CAE and CAD. With the help of governmental funding, the ikt has been able
to share its hardware and software implementation with all universities within the federal state of
North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) in Germany at no cost for the participating partners. Since the
project’s start in 2002, it has taken proportions that can compete with the biggest industrial-scale
applications, featuring 45.000 registered users and continuous software upgrading and migration.
