Application: Managing artifact information method and system (Patent ID: US20230409596A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG describes a computer-implemented method and system for managing artifact information. The method involves storing internal and external sequences of artifact information, importing metadata from external data repositories to a data storage platform, and creating links between internal and external sequences based on the metadata. The system includes an internal data store and a processor to execute the method steps, facilitating the management of artifact information across different repositories.

The method further includes steps such as transforming metadata into unified metadata, importing metadata from external repositories to a data storage platform or an external repository aggregator, and checking for changes in external repositories and data storage platforms. The system allows for the display of sequences, work items, and links to users via a user interface. Additionally, the method specifies the storage of metadata in cloud-based or on-premise platforms and the inclusion of URL or URI links in the created links. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive approach to managing artifact information across internal and external repositories, enhancing data organization and accessibility.
