30-day Public Review for Product Life Cycle Support V1.0
The OASIS Product Life Cycle Support (PLCS) TC  members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 30-day public review:
Product Life Cycle Support Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
12 March 2013
The purpose of the OASIS Product Life Cycle Support (PLCS) standard is to establish structured data exchange and sharing capabilities for use by industry to support complex engineered assets throughout their total life cycle. The OASIS Product Life Cycle Support (PLCS) standard is defined by Data Exchange Specifications (DEX) that are based upon ISO 10303 (STEP) Application Protocol 239 Product Life Cycle Support. This draft includes the PLCS library, templates, derived SysML and XML models and associated reference data.
Please note that this Committee Specification Draft is a highly interlinked collection of HTML documents. The navigation links on the top and in the left column provide accesss to the components of the draft. The link to Help on the navigation links includes an explanation of the organization of the material. The Help topic "PLCSlib navigation" explains how to use the interface.
The TC is currently developing templates for deployment of the ISO 10303-239 standard, together with associated SysML and XML models to facilitate implementation. It is intended that the work be adopted by ISO.
Public Review Period:
The public review starts 28 March 2013 and ends 27 April 2013.
