Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) orders Share-A-space®

In September 2009 FMV placed an order for Share-A-space with Eurostep. Share-A-space will replace the current PDB system and is to be used as the system for configuration management of product data at FMV. Share-A- space is accredited at FMV and an upgrade to Share-A-space Release 7 is within the project plan. The Release 7 will allow FMV to run the complete system on Microsoft technology including SQL Server.

The selection of Share-A-space follows an announcement by FMV in 2006 to focus its management of product data for the entire life cycle of products on the standard PLCS, Product Life Cycle Support (ISO STEP AP239). FMV says that the use of PLCS will reduce cost and increase quality during the transfer of product data between industry, FMV and the Swedish Armed Forces, as well as within FMV. Another important reason to select PLCS is the need to manage product data according to a format not dependent on a specific IT system.

"We are very pleased to receive this order", says Håkan Kårdén, CEO Eurostep Group. "FMV has been at the forefront of PLCS development and implementation and the time has come to use PLCS in production. The FMV selection of Share-A-space is very encouraging. We have made some strategic decisions the last couple of years with the incorporation of Microsoft technology and partnerships with key system integration companies like Logica. The FMV order shows this is appreciated by the user community adopting PLCS within existing IS/IT and outsourcing frameworks", ends Mr Kårdén.
