Philipp Martin Fischer, Meenakshi Deshmukh, Volker Maiwald, Dominik Quantius, Antonio Martelo Gomez, Andreas Gerndt
2017 Concurrent Engineering - Research and Applications  
Within these facilities the studies are performed following a defined process making use of a data model for information exchange.  ...  This meta-model, often referred as Conceptual Data Model (CDM), is finally used and instantiated as system model during these CE studies.  ...  These Resources represent a kind of storage for a model or a part of it. In the case of Virtual Satellite the storage is an XML/XMI serialized file.  ...
