Phase 2: A solution will be developed that will be no-cost or low-cost. Research on various non-proprietary technologies will be done to arrive at technologies which suit the application. A model using the chosen technologies will be developed to implement the universal data management solution.
Phase 3: To prove and evaluate performance of the model, a prototype will be developed. The prototype will be setup at the test-site for trial and feedback. At the end of this phase a project report will be prepared. The dissertation will summarize the research and conclusions in the attempt to provide no-cost model for product data management.
