Document Management in Complex Technical Structures

Document management systems for mechanical and plant engineering purposes have to exhibit certain characteristics. They need to be able to mirror the structure of projects and products in order to satisfy industry-specific document control requirements.

The term “DMStec” is often used to categorize this DMS discipline; some vendors focus on special offers in this particular field. Knowing this, companies with these specific requirements should differentiate between DMS vendors and carefully examine the capabilities of their DMS systems, as PDM and DMS provide the foundation for developing a process strategy for their product lifecycle management (PLM).

That is why DMStec manages product structures, plants, or infrastructure objects in a way that is detached of the document itself. Structures can be determined by the technical characteristics of a plant or product or by their location and there can be multiple structures that are completely independent of one another.
