Product data definition

 “This draft technical specification is intended to provide a consistent methodology for the definition, creation, management and sharing of product information through the life cycle of an asset based on the purpose of that information, and by whom the information is to be used.  This draft  does not constitute a standard that has been developed through a recognised and independent consensus-building process.”

Exemplar Process Maps

These exemplar process maps illustrate how defined and mapped information requirements ensure that organisations procure and are supplied with verified, appropriately controlled information to the right Level of Definition. Information requirements can also inform governance gateways (decisions points where key questions need to be answered to enable approval). These questions are referred to as Plain Language Questions (PLQ).
