  • Publication number: 20130238508
    Abstract: Various disclosed embodiments include systems and methods for collaborative virtual product development. According to disclosed embodiments, a system includes a collaborative design associated with a virtual product, the collaborative design including a plurality of design elements representing units of data which include attributes, positions, and geometries of the virtual product. The collaborative design also references a plurality of partitions defined as a hierarchical organization of the design elements. The collaborative design also includes at least one workset comprising a subset of the design elements possessing memberships in the workset based on one or more predetermined rules. The workset is configured to enable a user to modify the collaborative design. The system includes a search application configured to search the design elements and operable to generate the subset based on the predetermined rules.

  • Patent number: 8533237
    Abstract: Methods for product data management and corresponding systems and computer-readable mediums. A method includes maintaining a hierarchical data structure for a complex item. The data structure includes a root node representing the complex item, at least one assembly node associated with a the partition node, and a plurality of part nodes each associated with the assembly node. The method includes defining at least two occurrences associated with the root node and corresponding to at least the root node and assembly node. The method includes defining at least one partition node representing a partition of the complex item, the partition node representing an organizational division of the occurrences of the associated with the root node that can be referenced in queries and navigation. The method includes associating at least two of the plurality of occurrences with the at least one partition node.

The data structure includes a root node representing the complex item, at least one assembly node associated with the root node, and a plurality of part nodes each associated with the assembly node. The method includes defining at least two absolute occurrences associated with the root node and corresponding to at least the root node and the assembly node. The method includes defining at least one managed occurrence that includes a plurality of the absolute occurrences. The method includes using the managed occurrence as a central control authority for the plurality of absolute occurrences.
