Presentation of STEP AP242 Benchmarks

AFNeT and prostep ivip are conducting and publishing the STEP AP242 Benchmarks.

The use of international open standards for 3D Model Based interoperability is seen as a key enabler to support global engineering and manufacturing of complex products within the extended enterprise. It also contributes to ensure a better independence regarding PLM vendor’s proprietary formats, and long-termpreservation of 3D Model Based design. The availability of COTS STEP AP242 solutions for CAD and PDM data interoperability contribute to address these challenges.

The objective of this Benchmark is to provide a public status of STEP AP242 functionalities available for operational use, tested by the industry and to identify limitations of the tested PLM COTS STEP AP242 applications.

This work has been realised with the support of:

- Industrials and trade associations: Dassault Aviation, Thales, GIFAS, PFA.

- Vendors: CT CoreTechnologie, Dassault Systèmes, Datakit, Elysium, PROSTEP AG, T-Systems.

Benchmark #3 project is composed of two types of test cases:

- CAD test cases managed by AFNeT,

- PDM test cases managed commonly by AFNeT and prostep ivip.

The reports are published in two forms:

- Short Public Reports

- Long Private Reports

The Long Private Reports of the PDM and CAD test cases in STEP AP242 Benchmarks are only available for AFNeT and prostep ivip member companies.

The Short Public Reports are officialy published here, on this current website page: benchmark.ap242.org
