In the automotive domain, innovation is driven by the introduction and continuous improvement of electrical and electronic (E/E) components (e.g. sensors, actuators, and electronic control units). This trend is accompanied by increasing complexity of interdependencies between these E/E components. In addition, external impact factors (e.g. changes of regulations) demand for more sophisticated E/E product data management (E/E-PDM). Since E/E product data is scattered over distributed heterogeneous IT systems, application-spanning use cases (e.g. consistency of artifacts, plausibility of logical connections between electronic control units) are difficult to realize. Consequently, the partial integration of the corresponding application data models becomes necessary.

In this talk, the fundamental challenges and requirements for the partial integration of E/E product data will be discussed. Finally, an initial draft for an integration framework will be presented.
