Study on Integration of CAx/PDM Based on Web Services
Using the advantages of integration technique based on Web Services, a CAx/PDM integration framework was constructed to realize the integration of PDM and other application systems. With the framework, the encapsulation of PDM function modules based on .NET Framework was achieved, a dynamic integration method of PDM and CAx systems was provided, the middle format of exchanging data for PDM and other application systems was represented by the XML( Extensible Markup Language) schema to share the information of enterprise application systems. The proposed integration technology can be effectively used to CAx /PDM integration, and meets the manufacturing enterprise's requirement on integrating application system suitably.
