PDM-IF Day #1 took place in Paris the 29th September 2015.
30 people have joined, divided in two groups (user group and implementor group).


The PDM Implementor Forum (PDM-IF) is a joint project between AFNeT and Prostep iViP.
The mission of the PDM-IF is to accelerate the development and general availability of PDM interoperability solutions based on ISO open standards. These interoperability solutions rely on converters, services or transaction hubs answering to PDM interoperability industry business cases.
The goals of the PDM Implementor Forum are to:

  • Develop international PDM interoperability recommended practices, completing the international PDM interoperability standards,
  • Establish shared test activities in the PDM area, based on agreed and reliable methods.
