Geometry Service Requirements

  • Geometry versioning: revision history of geometry changes such as who did what to the model and for which analysis, when changes were made, by whom, etc.
  • Direct association of stored geometry with external data
  • Multi-user access controls that allow multiple people to work on the same models at the same time
  • Programmable access-controlled interface that utilizes reuseable code for consistent end-to-end access to geometric data.
  • Dynamic geometry
  • Geometryarticulation and editing constraints
  • Unified repository of geometry in one storage location.
  • Reuse of identical geometry parts (single instancing).
  • Improved/advanced collaboration.
