Implementation of RegIF for the Simantics platform

Research output: Book/ReportReport


This report is the result of task 3 ('Requirement- and simulation driven design') of the SIMPRO project ('Computational methods in mechanical engineering product development') carried out during the years 2012-2015. The report focuses on the steps to support ReqIF data roundtrip and data validation in the Simantics environment. ReqIF and an example use case to exchange ReqIF data between two companies are introduced. In addition, applicability of different XML schema languages for data validation in the Simantics environment is considered. Possible approaches and technologies to resolve ReqIF data (XML data) exchange are presented. Finally, implemented features in the Simantics environment are demonstrated.
