Aspects of PLM Openness

Openness in PLM is  a topic for discusion in industry and in the classroom.  We think of openness if these areas:


  • OPEN DATA MODEL - Enabling interoperability
  • OPEN BUSINESS MODEL - Leveraging standard, open components
  • OPEN ARCHITECTURE - Enabling integration
  • OPEN APPLICATIONS - Automation/customization
  • OPEN COMMUNITIES FOR INNOVATION - Promoting partner/customer communities

We asked Taxal (PLM Industry Analyst) to do an assessessment.  Here are there thoughts on openness in PLM. Any thoughts on this topic?
