We are pleased to announce the approval of an OASIS Committee Specification produced by members of the OASIS Product Life Cycle Support (PLCS) TC:
Product Life Cycle Support DEXs Version R5 Committee Specification 01 18 November 2010
HTML: http://docs.oasis-open.org/plcs/dexlib/cs01/oasis_cover.htm PDF: http://docs.oasis-open.org/plcs/dexlib/cs01/oasis_cover.pdf XML Namespace Names: http://docs.oasis-open.org/plcs/plcs-std-rdl http://docs.oasis-open.org/plcs/plcs-arm-lf-express
The purpose of the OASIS Product Life Cycle Support TC is to establish structured data exchange and sharing capabilities for use by industry to support complex engineered assets throughout their total life cycle. These Data Exchange Sets (DEXs) are based upon ISO 10303 (STEP) Application Protocol 239 (Product Life Cycle Support). The OASIS Product Life Cycle Support TC is responsible for defining, developing, testing and publishing of OASIS Product Life Cycle Support DEXs, and for liaison with ISO TC 184/SC4. The OASIS Product Life Cycle Support TC coordinates these activities with relevant OASIS Technical Committees and promotes the use of OASIS Product Life Cycle Support DE's across industries and governments world-wide.
Data needed to manage complex engineered assets is often distributed over multiple IT systems and organizations, and historically has been difficult to access and consolidate. The PLCS standard provides a large, integrated information model covering the whole lifecycle. The PLCS standard provides the basic mechanisms enabling neutral file exchanges between IT systems and organisations. This helps remove delays and costs for both the end user of the product and the supplier, and is particularly important for service-based contracts such as "power-by-the-hour".
The scope of the information content of ISO 10303-239 covers:
- The identification and composition of a product design from a support viewpoint - The definition of documents and their applicability to products and support activities - The identification and composition of individual products - Configuration management activities, over the complete life cycle - Activities required to sustain product function - The resources needed to perform such activities - The planning and scheduling of such activities - The capture of feedback on the performance of such activities, including the resources used - The capture of feedback on the usage and condition of a product - The definition of the support environment in terms of people, organizations, skills, experience and facilities
Per TC Process, members of the OASIS PLCS TC  requested a Special Majority Vote  to approve the Product Life Cycle Support DEXs Version R5 work product dated 9 September 2010 as a Committee Specification. The specification had been released for public review as required by the TC Process . The vote to approve at Committee Specification (CS) level passed, and the approved CS01 is available online in the OASIS Library as referenced above.
We thank the PLCS TC members and all reviewers who contributed to the production of this technical work.
This notification is provided in accordance with the OASIS Technical Committee Process (Section 2.8) requirements for TC Visibility .
Note: On behalf of OASIS and myself as Interim TC Administrator, I apologize to the PLCS TC members for the consequences of extreme delay in processing.
