Towards Integrated Modelling of Product Lifecycle Management Information and Processes
Paper in proceedings, 2008
This paper makes a review of the current standards and practices regarding, PLM architecture and modelling languages for information and system modelling. As well as it makes a short review of the trends in automotive and aerospace PLM applications in industry. It is concluded that enterprise and PLM modelling can be and is being performed in industry at different abstraction levels. A more uniform and integrated approach towards modelling of both IT and processes is believed to be beneficial from several viewpoints, not least in order to better govern and manage the IT and process integration and architecture over time, in an ever changing business context.
