PROSTEP AG Announces OpenPDM OSLC Adapter

PROSTEP would like to announce to the OSLC community, that there is an OpenPDM OSLC Adapter which enables PLM systems to connect to the OSLC world. It offers OSLC standard services, especially for those PLM systems which don’t offer native ones. The adapter is an add-on for the OpenPDM integration framework which provides connectors to a wide range of systems, e.g.:

Ansys EKM Aras Innovator Autodesk Vault Dassault SmarTeam Dassault ENOVIA V6 Dassault ENOVIA VPM V4 MSC SimManager Oracle Agile ePLM PTC Windchill SAP PLM Siemens Teamcenter Engineering Siemens Teamcenter Enterprise Siemens Teamcenter UA The OpenPDM OSLC services can be integrated in any OSLC consuming applications. The supported features are:

OSLC Service Providers (OSLC Core 2.0) Jazz specific Root Service Change Request Resources: as RDF/XML as JSON (OSLC CM 2.0) Query Capabilities (OSLC Core 2.0) Selection UI (OSLC Core 2.0) OAuth Link documents managed in Backend as related resource to OSLC CM entity Provide download for documents A very successful project was performed by PROSTEP at Bombardier Transportation. The IBM tool Rational Team Concert was integrated with Teamcenter Enterprise from Siemens PLM. Rational Team Concert is used for managing the creation and delivery of documents which are needed for the authorisation of their products by European Union (EU) or local country bodies. The requirements are managed in Rational Doors Next Generation. The documents are stored in their central PDM system Teamcenter and linked to the RTC tasks. Teamcenter Enterprise doesn’t provide a native OSLC service and is now enabled by the OpenPDM OSLC Adapter to be accessed by RTC via OSLC. The project was defined, performed and finished successfully in close cooperation with IBM.
