On the long-term retention of geometry-centric digital engineering artifacts

  title={On the long-term retention of geometry-centric digital engineering artifacts},
  author={William C. Regli and Joseph B. Kopena and Michael Grauer},
  journal={Computer-Aided Design},
This paper discusses the challenges of long-term preservation of digital geometric models and the engineering processes associated with them. For engineering, design, manufacturing, and physics-based simulation data this requires formats that are accessible potentially indefinitely into the future. One of the fundamental challenges is the development of digital geometry-centric engineering representations that are self describing and assured to be interpretable over the long lifespans required… CONTINUE READING
