The objective of VDA's workgroup CAD/CAM is to resolve technical and organizational requirements and to develop methods so as to transfer product description data between heterogeneous CAD/CAM systems of the automotive OEMs and their first-tier suppliers in a cost-effective, timesaving, and reliable way.
Up to now neutral interfaces between CAD systems played a dominant role in this area. In the future more focus will be put on product data management (PDM). Therefore it is essential to implement open systems and to design universal process sequences.
These procedures are supposed to be released as recommendations and as DIN/ISO standards respectively, and are to be applied in national as well as international cooperations.
