Abstract Manufacturing data and information are produced and used during the lifecycle of product development. Product lifecycle management (PLM) systems provide a suitable platform for managing them. For appropriate management of manufacturing data, it needs to be identified, classified, and stored based on the structure of PLM systems. In this paper, the results of an industrial manufacturing data collection study are interpreted, and their relation to the main structures in PLM systems is specified. Subsequently, a new information model for assigning this data and information to the PLM data model is presented. The main contribution of this information model is the definition of property and change objects and integrating them with the structure of PLM systems; changes and revisions of those data are formally defined and hence traceable.
