PLCSlib Overview
PLCSlib -- the repository of information about Product Life Cycle Support (PLCS) PLCS, the OASIS PLCS Data EXchange Specifications (DEXs) and other related technology developed by the OASIS PLCS Technical Committee.

The DEXs specify the information to be exchanged and shared in order to support the life cycles of complex assets. The DEXs identify coherent subsets of the PLCS Platform Specific Model (PLCS PSM) that support data flows needed for specific business processes.

The OASIS PLCS Technical Committee is responsible for defining, developing, testing, and publishing of OASIS PLCS DEXs, and for liaison with ISO TC 184/SC4. More information about the OASIS PLCS TC can be found at (

OASIS PLCS TC Publications are derived from the content that is developed (by the TC) on PLCSlib. However, it is the publication that is the subject of standardisation, not PLCSlib, which is a development environment for the OASIS PLCS TC.

The PLCSlib repository of DEXs and their supporting components is organized as follows:

In addition to the components listed above, PLCSlib also includes the PLCS Help pages that are provided to explain:
