Based on ISO, STEP & PLCS standards

ShareAspace Server data and file store is designed to capture and manage through-life product information. The internal database schema is based on ISO 10303, STEP AP242 and PLCS AP 239 and manages all aspects of product information such as requirements, analysis, design parts, engineering change, serialized parts and product support in an extensible manner. Data is open and can be extracted without information loss.

Scale to your needs

ShareAspace has built-in support for both horizontal and vertical scaling. Replicate your data on multiple nodes for load balancing or backup.

FAQ

Here you will find answers and frequently asked question. Should you not find what you are looking for do not hesitate in contacting us at info@eurostep.com

ShareAspace implements a fixed object schema making it a “pure” data sharing mechanism that is independent of, and not encumbered by, the business processes used at the partners, and so can provide rapid and unambiguous exchange between systems with different business logic. An out of the box solution that is easy to set up enables business agility.

ShareAspace delivers data consolidation. This enables incremental changes to product lifecycle configuration data to be quickly captured from authoring systems, integrated into the shared total product definition and published, supporting multiple views.

ShareAspace maps data into STEP and PLCS. Any data put into ShareAspace will be mapped to STEP and PLCS and this is an attractive way to “get to STEP and PLCS” instead of upgrading in-house legacy systems.

ShareAspace runs on premise or as a cloud service. Regular web-browsers are used for access to ShareAspace.

When defining the information change process, ShareAspace is using “change triggers”. These typically already exist such as the release of a change notice. The change information itself is propagated either through file transfer or web services. In cases where a changing system is not capable of sending a change trigger a complete set of data can be sent to ShareAspace which then applies its consolidation rule engine in order to build a synchronized data set. This operation also highlights all changes that have occurred to the information.

No, not at all. ShareAspace can manage whatever data or files, fine-grained and documents. The data structure is based on STEP and PLCS but any files can be managed with this concept.

ShareAspace can use viewers like JT, Spinfire and many others thanks to the open architecture of ShareAspace.

ShareAspace is unique in supporting any kind of structures, requirements structures, E-BOMs and M-BOMs etc. ShareAspace provides integration and overlay between those so that integrated configuration management, analysis, etc can be applied across domains. By adopting the STEP and PLCS standards.
