Enhanced PLM Collaboration for Industry Leaders

ShareAspace Server, our award-winning PLM collaboration software, streamlines product lifecycle management, facilitating safe collaboration while controlling intellectual property. It links the digital thread, providing a clear, concise and validated view of data throughout the product’s lifecycle.

A digital thread is the communication framework that provides a connected data flow and integrated view of the product’s data throughout its lifecycle, connecting the many digital twins. Data should be reusable and flow both downstream and upstream through feedback loops. Considering the data applications outside of the data generating domain, all the data in a digital thread must be clear, concise, and validated. Traditionally, a digital thread spans siloed functional perspectives, but for value networks, which include suppliers, partners and customers, it needs to also extend outside of an organization’s border.


Our easily deployable software respects firewalls, integrating with in-house systems and providing secure data sharing. ShareAspace Server consolidates and maps data from all vendor systems, facilitating business agility and rapid system exchange.

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.
