Total Object Unified Model Driven Architecture Method for Manufacturing Information Management
The purpose of this study was to provide a unified modelling framework of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). Firstly, the paper presented a Total Object Unified Model(TOUM) method which was used to abstract the concepts of manufacturing domain, format the meta-model of manufacturing data, construct the data model of PLM; Secondly, this paper presented three kinds of architectures based on TOUM to unify and simplify model, which are development architecture, deployment architecture and application architecture. At last, a model instance applied in a PLM product-CAXA V5 was shown based on the method of TOUM to confirm the validity of this method. This paper has provided a reference operation model and method for Product Lifecycle Management.
