Information Engineering

What is information engineering?

Information engineering uses engineering principles to develop standardised specifications for the representation of digital product data that are independent from any proprietary software - also known as product data technology.

Who uses it?

These standard specifications are in use for real-time communication, data management and data conservation in:

The use of product data representation standards  for the long-term conservation of engineering information have been demonstrated in the LOTAR project - a collaboration between auto, aerospace and defence organisations to conserve data using ISO 10303 standards and the Open Archival Information System (ISO 14721:2003).

How it is done?

The specifications are computer interpretable information models that are defined in the series of International Standards developed by ISO TC184/SC4 and :
