Cross-Application Awareness in PLM

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: New Design Paradigms and Processes

Research team: Jordan Johnson

Todays Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software does not support multi-user applications such as NXConnect. This makes it difficult to incorporate such applications into a complex engineering task. A powerful collaborative tool is irrelevant if it cannot be integrated into an industrial workflow, and so all of its time saving benefits cannot be realized. This project implements one of the fundamental changes that must occur for PLM to adapt to multi-user applications: awareness.
