Customizing PDM for Systems Engineering Process
Paper in proceedings, 2010

The aim of this research work was to try out the applicability of a Product Data Management (PDM) system as a hub to support systems engineering processes for embedded systems at a large automotive company. The PDM system was customized to work for two demonstrator cases focusing on integration and workflow. An application solution was written using Visual C# to automate the design task in conjunction with the PDM system and simulation software. It is concluded that PDM systems are very flexible and possible to customize to basically any need. However this does not mean that a PDM system is suitable for every company as a hub for systems engineering data.
