STEP AP 242 – Managed model based 3D engineering

Companies today design, manufacture, and provide support for their products as part of a global, distributed enterprise. A successful approach to support new capabilities and control costs is to implement data exchange standards that allow companies to integrate all phases of the product lifecycle. The STEP standard focuses on product data to support CAD/CAM/CAE and PDM data exchange, system integration, visualization, and long term preservation of product information.
