What’s prostep ivip?
Since its inception in 1993, prostep ivip has been the leading global association of manufacturers, suppliers, and IT vendors working to develop modern processes for efficient product data management and integrated virtual product creation (iViP). Established by companies like Bosch, Continental, Daimler, Delphi, Opel, Siemens, Volkswagen and 30 others, the association aims to ensure the ability of German companies to compete in the global marketplace. They do this by collaboratively developing new approaches to end-to-end process, system, and data integration in the product creation process.
Having developed the STEP data format (ISO 10303), prostep ivip went on to incorporate a working group for Integrated Virtual Product Creation (iViP) in 2003. Ever since, the association has worked to design solutions to provide digital support for all phases of the product creation process.
Today, the association has over 180 members including product manufacturers and suppliers, IT companies and service providers, and research institutions and other standardization bodies.
