Within early phases of a product lifecycle, a lack of process connections between CAD design, product appearance configuration as well as virtual reality and other visualisation scenarios can still be identified. Therefore, the contribution introduces the basic components of a conceptual framework for holistic management of virtual reality and other related visualisation data in order to enhance the current situation within the different product lifecycle stages. The basis of the approach covers the structuring of geometry entities within CAx-authoring tools and the connection to the underlying data backbone. Hence, the ability to structure geometry within CAx-tools and CAx-based open standard formats will be evaluated and discussed. By using the OSLC (Open Standard for Lifecycle Collaboration ) specification, these results allow the implementation of a CAD integrated tool to connect product data with configurable linked data entities.
