ISO 10303 – STEP. Product Data Standards

Scope

The growth of electronic commerce for simple buying and selling over the Web is well documented, but it represents only part of the potential impact of electronic business. This article explores an area of electronic business which is far more challenging and has the potential to bring much greater reward to the global economy. As manufacturing and construction industries become more global, there is a growing demand to exchange the digital definition of products themselves between different organizations as the product moves from design through manufacture to long-term support.

ISO 10303, STEP – the STandard for the Exchange of Product model data – is a comprehensive series of documents which provides industry with a major capability to exchange and share the information used to define a product, throughout the supply chain to the end customer and throughout the entire life cycle of the product. It is already in use to share simple CAD (Computer Aided Design) information, product models, complete product structures and technical drawings, as well as the underlying analysis information in industries such as aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding and construction.
