This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Enterprise business information management system based on PDM framework ' Information availability is a key factor for business success while IT systems are critical for enhancing enterprise competitiveness. Currently, most solutions do not have capabilities to manage entire business processes. As a result, enterprises have to implement multiple IT systems, which can cause problems of information consistency and data integrity. This paper presents an enterprise business information management system (EBIMS) based on a PDM framework. The EBIMS model streamlines the management of information of key business processes, including quotation, sales order processing, design, planning, scheduling, production to delivery. Built on a PDM framework to integrate many different disciplines, the multi-layered EBIMS architecture provides capability for managing key business processes with a single unified data and process model so as to achieve true process streamlining and data integrity throughout the entire product development lifecycle, and hence improving enterprise efficiency.
