[Anrede] [Nachname],

One of the main challenges in times of transformation – where speed, ethics, climate protection, transparency and traceability collide – is the consistent translation of the associated strategic business-orientations into the market. The prostep ivip association addresses these trends in the operating environment. It also provides the upper management with a venue for coordinating strategies and exchanging best-practices and implementation solutions.

Your benefit: Our knowledge lead

The association is in its overall structure an active knowledge base. We offer our members the possibility of using recommendations or our international network, in order to establish efficient digital processes to address deficiencies in the development of future innovative products and services. Since our foundation we have balanced out these weaknesses with the democratization of product and process data.

A clear testimony to our lead is the fact, that market research companies have identified x-reality technologies (like augmented, mixed or virtual reality) and their convergences in form of multi-channel man-machine-interfaces as an important technology trend in 2020. I am particularly pleased that these technologies, which were initially used for visualization, communication and the exchange of digital product representations, are currently undergoing significant changes in the safeguarding of digital multiples. The actual fusion of different value-added domains is - in terms of collaborative systems engineering aspects and with the use of our recommendations - clearly feasible today. They ensure the simulation and validation of autonomously acting products in a controlled virtual and real world with openness being the key.

2020 – Time to act!

We recognize that we must act in order to intercept the requirements of software domains within complex product configurations. Software not only becomes an important innovation driver, but also entails new challenges. Still, we face the future with optimism and provide the necessary framework conditions through the technical program and partnerships.

I invite you to participate actively in our 30 projects. For more details on those activities please refer to our homepage at www.prostep.org or contact our colleagues or myself at the office. Please visit our homepage and consult our publications on the digitization of products and production in our online media library. On behalf of the management board and the entire team I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities that the new year provides! The prostep ivip association will be at your service with a wide range of topics, projects, events and publications. We look forward to having you on board with us!

Yours sincerely,
Alain Pfouga

ProductData Journal 1/2020: Interested in getting involved?

Our member magazine is well received – and enjoys increasing popularity. To inform and to be informed is an important aspect of our international PLM community. We offer all our members the opportunity to be represented in the ProductData Journal, published twice a year, either by a current technical article or as a flashlight with an ad. You can find the current ProductData Journal HERE as e-paper.

Editorial and advertising deadline for the upcoming ProductData Journal is April 20, 2020. All information on how your company can become a part of our member magazine is available HERE.

Exhibition at the prostep ivip Symposium 2020: Secure your space now!

We thank all exhibitors for their overwhelming interest! Due to the strong demand we decided to increase the exhibition space of the prostep ivip Symposium on May 12 and 13, 2020 at the ICS Stuttgart. Please note that only members of the prostep ivip association are entitled to be an exhibitor at the symposium. The exhibition plan - which is updated daily – as well as detailed information are available on the internet at www.prostep-ivip-symposium.org/en/exhibition/. Regardless of whether you choose a standard booth, premium booth or start-up booth – at the prostep ivip Symposium you present yourself at your best! We will gladly provide personal advise, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What does prostep ivip got to do with ECAD?

It has never been more important than it is today to maintain an intensive exchange between electronic and mechanical design. Due to the severe shrinking of installation spaces, more and more collisions occur during construction. Just consider the development of our smartphones, which despite becoming smaller, are increasing in functionality. Poor communication between the different departments may result in designers having to redevelop causing unnecessary additional rounds.

The project group ECAD/MCAD Collaboration IF is developing and expanding the IDX (Incremental Design eXchange) format to ensure that the software used is able to support the designers in their coordination across vendors. As a result, it will be possible to transmit design changes from MCAD systems, affecting e.g. the installation space, to ECAD systems and vice versa. The data is transmitted incrementally and is therefore very lean.

The IDX standard is an industry standard already supported by numerous vendors. Since the technical possibilities for electronic components are constantly changing, it is necessary, to continuously expand the standard. Thus, today circuits can already be printed on flexible elements that must be usefully transferred to the other system using IDX.

Advertising for the 10th anniversary of the project group ECAD/MCAD Collaboration IF has already been launched: in addition to the website
ecad-mcad.org, a flyer was created and a white paper planned.
The new version IDXv4.0 is now available in the prostep ivip media library for all association members and paying customers who are interested.

For more information about the project group ECAD/MCAD Collaboration, please feel free to contact me. We are always interested in getting users of IDX and other representatives from the MCAD world at our table to support additional use cases and requirements.

prostep ivip Webinar: Smart Systems Engineering on 14 February 2020 at 2pm CET

The current challenge of product development, especially triggered in the automotive industry by e-mobility and autonomous driving, lies among other things in managing the complexity through the exponential increase in E/E and software and in enabling and securing a virtual system development. Systems engineering is a possible way of dealing with these complex problems. The prostep ivip project group Smart Systems Engineering develops recommendations for process design, drives technical standards for the cooperative development of complex, mechatronic systems and supports the in-house and comprehensive creation of transparency regarding systems engineering objects. The vision is to establish industry best practices for distributed, collaborative system development in the field of simulation using systems engineering standards and methods.

The core topics of the working group are the development of a method for simulation-based decision making, the further development of the FMI standard and its industrialization, the identification of industrial requirements for the standard system structure and parameterization of components for virtual system design (SSP), the establishment of modeling and Simulation standards for V-ECUs and the identification of new requirements from the perspective of autonomous systems.

prostep ivip members can participate in the webinar free-of-charge. Please register by sending an e-mail to
sarah.giese@prostep.com and you will receive the log-in data in return.

Advance Notice: the next webinar will be held on 28 February on the subject of "JT Workflow Forum (JT-WF)”.
