TRUEPLM (Product Lifecycle Management solutions, using ISO 10303 STEP/PLCS)

Ref-Nr:

Technology abstract

TruePLM, based on ISO 10303, is a scalable solution for engineers that need to manage their PLM/CAD/CAE information using either portable devices, a multi-user server system within the firewall or multi-organisation cloud-based subscription services.  Large and complex products such as aircraft, vehicles, oil and gas installations and ships depend on accurate engineering information for their successful operation and maintenance throughout a life cycle often measured in decades.

Technology Description

The TruePLM solution has been designed to provide maximum capabilities to companies executing concurrent engineering strategies. The system allows users to;

  • Increase Data Management Capabilities
  • Support concurrent processes and document dependencies
  • Consolidate design models in a repository based on open standards compliant formats
  • Increase Document Management Effectiveness
  • Archive data in an open standard format, PLCS (ISO 10303)
  • Support information longevity
  • Improve Information Quality Management
  • Create solutions for Life Cycle Data Management

Innovations & Advantages

The Jotne approach to the PLM domain is to establish and use a common or master data unified repository in which product and process information from many sources (such as systems, companies, etc.) can be merged and consolidated. The TruePLM repository is designed to handle many product versions and configurations and distinguish between information packages received from multiple suppliers and partners delivered to many customers. Using the ISO 10303 standards the Jotne solution addresses your requirements of interoperability, and Long Term Archiving and Retrieval (LOTAR) as defined by the AIA/ASD standardization effort of the same name.

Further Information

Today’s manufacturing industries are under continuous pressure to deliver competitive products faster. At the same time they must reduce the development cost and the cost of product ownership. In addition, they have to protect their intellectual property whilst working in shared environments and sustaining business growth and competitiveness. In order to achieve this goal, collaboration across the product development lifecycle is critical. However, collaboration introduces many complications that must be addressed in order to ensure the integrity and consistency of product development information. These product development processes now also span increasingly complex business environments that bring together multiple companies, each with their own systems and processes.

Enabling Open Information Systems​
Organizations of any size achieve high performance by making timely, effective and efficient decisions. All decisions rely on a fundamental input: information. Organizations require capable people to make decisions, but must also invest in the processes and technology that generate fit-for-purpose information. Such investment has led to information becoming a key enabler of the globally competitive market place and, thus, the world has entered the Information Age. Every information set possesses characteristics that determine the success of the decisions possible using the information content. Of these characteristics, the most critical are timeliness, accuracy, completeness and provenance. These are the characteristics of high-quality information.
High-quality information is most typically achievable through computer-based solutions. These solutions benefit from implementations using an information model that rigorously defines the information content.

Current and Potential Domains of Application

TruePLM, based on ISO standards, is a scalable solution for engineers that need to manage their PLM/CAD/CAE information using either portable devices, a multi-user server system within the firewall or multi-organisation cloud-based subscription service.
