Cross-Discipline Lifecycle Collaboration


2016 - 2017


In the last couple of years, many data exchange standards evolved to make engineering information exchangeable between engineers of different departments or organizations. Successful integration of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), along with Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), is a key aim for reducing costs in the development process and being competitive in future. Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) is a promising solution to meet the described challenges by decoupling the data models of different software vendors and their tools and enabling unified access to resources. New availability of data and user interfaces will offer excellent prospects to re-organize and optimize development processes.

At the prostep ivip OSLC Day in October 2015, a clear statement for deriving uses cases and giving real-life application support was given by the 120 international participants. Thus, within this project, key use cases for ALM-PLM interoperability will be derived, related benefits gathered and technological recommendations for realization support exploiting and driving standards will be given. 

The project kick-off was in September 2016. Before this, a field study will be conducted for figuring out industry’s hot topics in the envisioned field of application. In 2017, three use cases developed will be specified in greater detail. These use case are:

  • ASIL / ISO 26262 Automotive (functional safety)
  • Interdisciplinary defect clarification / impact analysis / change request
  • Improved communication between engineers

This will also involve deriving technical requirements relating to OSCL and SysML and discussing them with the relevant committees and IT vendors. In addition, a series of webinars on topics like OSLC and SysML will be conducted.
