With the publication of the ProSTEP iViP Recommendation PSI 5, the activities of the ECAD/MCAD Collaboration project group, which were launched in 2006, were brought to a successful close. Completion of the group’s work means that a comprehensive specification for collaboration between the ECAD and MCAD domains is now available. In addition, implementation guidelines and conformity criteria were drawn up, which make it easier for programmers to implement the ECAD/MCAD data schema and which are intended to ensure interoperability between the different applications.
Since 2010 the topic ECAD/MCAD collaboration is promoted within the framework of an ECAD/MCAD Implementor Forum. First of all, dissemination and application of the data model for ECAD/MCAD collaboration is supported and promoted. Secondly, corresponding to industrial requirements the collaboration standard is enhanced.
