The Code of PLM Openness (CPO) is a worldwide unique approach and runs under the patronage of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). CPO is a prostep ivip initiative, for establishing a common understanding on openness of IT systems in the context of PLM between IT customers, IT vendors and IT service providers. Thereby, the CPO goes far beyond the requirement to provide IT standards and related interfaces. It defines measurable criteria (‘shall’, ‘should’, ‘may’) for the following categories: interoperability, infrastructure, extensibility, interfaces, standards, architecture as well as partnership.
Together with the BMWi prostep ivip currently specifies the CPO-related certification procedure. First pilot-certifications will be conducted in 2017. In parallel, an accredited certification procedure will be worked out together with the DAkkS. Additionally, related next steps on EU-level and in Japan (together with the METI) are planned.
