Evolution of a road product model

Abstract:Product modelling concepts, methods, techniques, and experiences have reached an evidently higher level of maturity and applicability. This paper presents the evolution of the road product model PMC from its first concepts in 1993 to the latest application, which is based on the XML technology and on the network concept of the Virtual Product Model. The paper compares the PMC with other existing road models, the RSMK, OKSTRA, and the Swedish National Road Administration model. One of the main characteristics of the PMC are its simplicity and modularity, which have been intentionally preserved from the earliest version, although there have been plans to essentially extend the model and it's complexity in the meantime. The paper explains the reasons for such directives. Furthermore, applications based on the latest version of the PMC road product model are presented. The paper concludes with a discussion on the effectiveness of different product modelling concepts and summarizes the relevant experiences gathered by the authors.
