Four of them have already a solution available, three others will follot in the next weeks. Four provider will wait for dedicated customer requests and unfortunately the last four didn´t respond. 
      > Of five M-CAD vendors, one has a complete solution available and two more will provide a solution soon. One vendor will only support the ISO 13406 part of JTIAP V2, and another will still need time for a more detailed analysis.

    • JT Industrial Application Package Version 2 is approved and released.  After intensive evaluations JTIAP is now approved  by ProSTEP iViP Association as PSI 14-1, V2.
      With this user driven specification the  industries get an important contribution to expand the usage of JT. It is compatible with (ISO 14306) but adresses additional user requirements. All use-cases defined by JT Workflowforum (PSI 14-2) are supported.  JTIAP is aligned with the current Siemens JT Version 10 and includes a modern compression algorithm. Hence siginficant enhancements in performance and file-size-reduction are expected. For further information please visit  "Events and Publications"
