|Document / product data management (DM/PDM) are currently being deployed
by e.g. aerospace, automotive, mechanical and process plant industries.
Hardly any use exists in the building construction industries.
It is anticipated that in near future most LSE companies will have in-house DM/PDM systems. In construction industry companies are likely to deploy DM systems which are closely coupled with their CAE tools.
The main integration problem with DM/PDM will be to connect different company specific systems in LSE projects. Most companies including CONCUR partners do not yet have in-house systems in place today. Therefore we need to consider a migration strategy enabling companies to set up DM/PDM while preserving connectibility with future external systems.
The main requirements for the Concurrent Engineering Environments are:
The system should also:
