Modelling web services for PLM distributed system
by Iliya Georgiev, Jivka Ovtcharova, Ivo Georgiev
International Journal of Product Lifecycle Management (IJPLM), Vol. 2, No. 1, 2007

Abstract: The dominating trend in Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) systems is to create distributed web-driven architectures with web services that would allow the related enterprises to operate as a single entity. The paper describes a modelling environment of web services to support easy prototyping of PLM systems. The application perspectives of two research problems are proposed: incorporating bottom-up ontology in the information web services for uniformity of product data access, and synchronisation modelling of control web services. The modelling approach was practically implemented in a PLM system under development.
