After two years of ramp up, Catena-X now goes live. Thus, by considering increased maturity of the platform it makes sense to reflect what’s in for the automotive industry in terms of added value for various stakeholders and implementation of sustainability targets. This presentation will address selected sustainability-related use cases and give an overview how they are technically realized. In this context, processing of data from company-individual backend systems (including PLM) to a common (yet decentral) data context is emphasized. In addition to thinking of PLM “only” as a data source, it is discussed as an outlook how legal and cross-company standards (such as Digital Product Pass) may impact future PLM processes.
