The prostep ivip association is dedicated to the development of forward-looking solutions and standards for product data management and virtual product creation. In doing so, it bundles the interests of manufacturers and suppliers in the manufacturing industry, as well as IT providers in close cooperation with science and research, in order to enable its members to achieve long-term competitive advantages through more efficient processes, methods and systems. The association was founded in 1993 based on the insight of well-known IT managers from BMW, Bosch, Continental, Daimler, Delphi, Opel, Siemens, Volkswagen and 30 others that the competitiveness of German companies will be largely determined by the development of modern methods for efficient product data management.
