English abstract:
In the parallel engineering of industrial production systems,
domain experts from several disciplines need to exchange data efficiently
to prevent the divergence of local engineering models. However, the data
synchronization is hard (a) as it may be unclear what data consumers
need and (b) due to the heterogeneity of local engineering artifacts. In
this paper, we introduce use cases and a process for efficient Engineering
Data Exchange (EDEx) that guides the definition and semantic mapping
of data elements for exchange and facilitates the frequent synchronization between domain experts. We identify main elements of an EDEx
information system to automate the EDEx process. We evaluate the
effectiveness and effort of the EDEx process and concepts in a feasibility case study with requirements and data from real-world use cases
at a large production system engineering company. The domain experts
found the EDEx process more effective and the EDEx operation more efficient than the traditional point-to-point process, and providing insight
for advanced analyses.

Keywords:
