Why do we need interoperability? new Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

My question is to all engineers. Are you accountable for your design changes when you provide access to your CAD geometry to another member of the developmental team? In an environment where companies use several vendors and suppliers to help develop products are we increasing liabilities when we everyone on the design team the freedom to make changes?

Brian,

2 heads are better than 1 and 5 heads are better than 2. Interoperability (though I think we are some distance away from it),is inevitable. Closely on its heels will be the issue of data management. Engineers having the freedom to make changes is a good thing, but that ability without accountability, is a bad thing. Ultimate apporval of designs should be overseen by someone with that responsibility. I personally want to see a successful EDM system(Engineering Data Management) before PDM. Increased liability, if the management of the design data is controlled, will not be much different than it is today.
