Nowadays „systems engineering“ is a discipline which is mainly employed in the domains of aerospace and aeronautics. Nevertheless, this discipline is also applicable to other domains. One of the problems in current engineering work is the lack of interoperability of different software systems used in the design context. The emerging ISO Standard “STEP 10303 AP-233 – Systems Engineering” will solve this major problem and opens the door for new applications over several domains using product design data. An overview is given about the current status of the AP-233 information model and the corresponding standardisation activities. Perspectives for further applications of the standard are provided in a concrete example.
