Joint testing performed by developers and the availability of agreed best practices for users provide the foundation for the interoperability of standards-based solutions. One of the main tasks performed by the PDM IF is therefore drawing up best practices for implementing PDM2PDM collaboration scenarios based on the STEP AP242 Business Object Model. Implementation guidelines (referred to as "recommended practices") are created and validated in joint test rounds by the participating vendors on the basis of the requirements identified in the use cases. The PDM IF is promoted jointly by prostep ivip and the French AFNeT and makes the strategic exchange of information and experience possible for both users and system vendors.
The User Group continued its work on common PDM use cases. The Visual Issue Management (VIM) scenario and the As Designed/As Planned (AD/AP) use case in particular have been refined. Detailed testing steps were defined and the use cases are in the process of being handed over to the Implementor Group for testing.
The Implementor Group continued its work on the recommended practices for STEP AP242 XML Product and Assembly Structure, which provide the foundation for interoperable interfaces to this important process format across all domains. The two rounds of testing performed this year indicate that the scope and quality of the participating interfaces has once again increased
The User Group will define detailed requirements for the use cases Virtual Issue Management and As Designed/As Planned and will work with the Implementor Group to verify the recommended practices for STEP AP242 from a user’s perspective.
The implementors will continue to work on a draft version 3.0 of the recommended practices for STEP AP242 XML Ed. 2. Furthermore, different aspects of the VIM and AD/AP use cases defined by the User Group will be included in the two planned test cases. Ongoing collaboration with other implementor groups will of course continue.
