Objects are of two different kinds: business items and data items. Objects used to represent parts, assemblies, and documents are designated business items or business objects.

For example, when a business item is copied in PDM, the data item is also copied, given a new name, and attached to the new business item.

Thanks. specification of structures and document formats. In the same way as PDM, the scope of document management tools is being extended.
