Product Model Editor

All product data in one place.


Your workspace

You have one product, but countless configuration options? It doesn't matter if you're designing shoes or software. Model your product and create a digital twin of your world. Define distinctive features, add filtering rules and metadata. Establish relationships to requirements, topics, and other information building blocks. Create reusable assemblies, versions and branches for your product. Use this knowledge across all departments and provide just the right information for your customers.

Digital twin

A representation of your product: The product model can be processed by humans as well as machines. Connected systems such as a content management system or a content delivery portal can benefit from the comprehensive classification and offer more complex services based on it.

Logical units with own life cycle

The semantic net is divided into many, small, reusable, logical units. Each of these units has its own life cycle. This approach enables collaborative and synchronous editing of the ontology. The built-in release process allows a quick and stable update of all information. The reliable versioning process preserves the evolution and change of the product, while branches enhance the functionality by an additional dimension.

Product model as knowledge base

Centralize all your product knowledge. Design your knowledge base as a semantic web and create a common understanding of your product among all stakeholders. Describe your product landscape with comprehensive variant management, even if it is a platform-based product.

Your benefits

ONTOLIS can map any imaginable world, as far as it is possible for you to define what you want to manage. All your data - no matter from which source system it originates - can be mapped in ONTOLIS to an appropriate data model. Use object libraries as an integrated search to make specific data available and findable.

Collecting information manually is over: All your information objects can be found in one place, e.g. in an object library or - even better - in product models. One look is enough to find the right information. Additionally, you can subscribe to relevant information objects, e.g. when a deadline has to be met. ONTOLIS keeps you up to date with notifications!

A digital twin of your product helps everyone in the company to actually understand the product. Once all the information is hooked into the product model, relationships and thus knowledge are visualized and human-readable. Use the knowledge gained in different contexts with different evaluations and views

PME Feature-List

Your Features in PME

Featurein product PME
Web applicationTeamwork online - no matter where, no matter when, no matter how many.
Data model in form of a schemaSpecify a suitable base (product, component, verb, property and default relationships) for your products. Define all the classification objects you need.
Versions and releasesConfigurable release of logical units. Reliable versioning, traceable through minor and major versions.
LibraryStructural management similar to a file system.
Search: normal and integratedSearch super fast and ontology powered in a specific context for the required objects or use the full-text search.
Object LibraryComfortably access all the objects you need to model your product in the Object Library. Configure which entities should be discoverable in the Object Library.
External sources of information / interfacesLink external information in the product model that enters the PME automatically or via clipboard.
QIRA: QueriesUse standard queries or build a query yourself with QIRA to pull relevant data from your product models.
UGUI CongifufigurationDo not represent relevant information from your product model as a tree, but build your own interface in ONTOLIS.
SubscriptionsSubscribe to relevant product models and other records to be notified when changes occur.
Smart PropertiesUse Smart Properties to classify consistently. The magic wand calculates appropriate metadata from the ontological context.
Rules: validity and filteringFilter your product model using different rules to represent variants and different views of your product.
Rights & RolesConfigure permissions to give the right team members exactly the access they need.
