In the scope of ever growing complexity amongst engineering networks and products, application of Product-Lifecycle-Management (PLM) concepts has become an essential element in strategic enterprise orientation.The de nition and administration of respective system landscapes is complicated by the diversity of predominating Team Data Management (TDM) and Product Data Management (PDM) solutions, whose data is to be held consistently at all times. This diversity, often resulting from product variance and distributed design processes, is especially observed in the automotive industry. In this context, this paper presents a concept for integrating neutral JT (Jupiter Tessellation) based collaboration technologies, in order to bridge information between authoring-system-oriented TDM solutions and comprehensive PDM solutions in a PLM Architecture (PLMA). The bene ts of a JT-based data management on the integrative layer are elaborated. Cost and IT system reduction as a result of applying the neutral technology in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) dispensable processes are presented in more detail. Further, the effects of JT integration into up-front PLMA determination approaches are exempli ed in terms of a process-oriented approach
