Platform independent Model for PLM
OMG Product Lifecycle Management Services is an integration standard to support the interoperability of PLM Systems. OMG PLM Services is a standard made of standards: the Information Model of the current version 2.1 was derived from the ISO 10303-214 STEP model, while the Functional Model is based on OMG PDM Enablers V1.3. PLM Services provide a solid foundation for collaborative engineering use cases (e.g. browsing in supplier product data structures, design in context and digital mock-up). Utilizing OMG Model Driven Architecture® (MDA®), the PLM Services specification is intended to serve for a wide range of implementation platforms. Currently it is targeted at web services, XML™ Schema, SOAP, and Java.
