An approach for enabling concurrent engineering between companies by providing a proper collaboration platform, as developed in the VIDOP project is proposed. Apart from security, information status is an important element of trust. However, status-coding schemes differ much between companies and are deeply anchored in local engineering culture. An abstract life cycle model that enables comparing and relating different life cycle conventions is presented. A federated PDM architecture is proposed that enables interface with the local PDM systems in a loosely coupled, but yet effective way.
