- Recently, Product Data Management (PDM) has received a great amount of attention from both academy and industry. A PDM system is mainly concerned with an exchange of product-related information on a product development process. The information usually includes many types of data such as text, 2D or 3D drawings, sound, and dynamic graphics. The development process often involves a wide range of disparate participants sometimes dispersed all over the world, each operating on a number of different computing platforms. Recent technological advances on data standards and communication networks can realize seamless information sharing even under such heterogeneous circumstances. A variety of commercial PDM systems have been introduced for the last few years, and its market has expanded very fast with an annual growth of 30%. In this article, an overview of PDM technology is provided with a couple of related areas, and its essential functions are described. Three types of PDM-based system integration (frontward, rearward, and sideward integration) are discussed, and the expected future trend of PDM technologies is considered. Finally, a multitude of evaluation factors are identified so that they can guide for a company to choose a right solution in implementing PDM systems.
