Data Management for Engineering Applications


Lecturer:  Dr. Eike Schallehn
Lecture:  LSF-Entry
Exercise:  LSF-Entry

Exam requirements

  • The exam will take place as a written exam. Registration using the LSF/HISQUIS system is required according to the general procedures.
  • Participation in the lecture and in the exercise is required.


  • Because of the skipped excercise in December, the excercise schedule was tightened. Tasks wille be addressed as follows:
    • Week starting January 7th
      • 7. Exercise: B-Rep Geometrical Data tasks 1 and 3
      • 8. Exercise: CAD Data in Databases task 1
    • Week starting January 14th
      • 8. Exercise: CAD Data in Databases task 3
      • 9. Exercise: Electronic Engineering Data tasks 1 and 2
    • Week starting January 21st
      • 10. Exercise: Product Lifecycle Management
  • Due to technical issues the excercise on Monday Dec 17th had to be skipped. For this reason the excercise on Friday Dec 21st will also be skipped.
  • As an example an old exam sheet was added on the bottom of this page.
  • As announced in the the lecture, the registration for the exam has been open since Dec 14th. Some students mentioned problems during the registration (the exam was not visible). I forwarded this to the examination office and they resolved some issues. If problems persist, please send me an email ( including information about your course of studies (DigiEng, DKE, etc.) and the version of the exmaination regulations (Prüfungsordnung) you are registered for.
  • Starting November 26th the Monday exercise will take place in room G22A-105 at the usual time.
  • Because of the high number of students a new room G50-H3 will be used, but for the first week of the semester there are some previous reservations for the new room. Accordingly, the lecture will take place as follows
    • Oct 22nd: G02-111 (old room)
    • Oct 29th:G50-H3 (new room)
    • Nov 5th: G02-111 (old room)
    • Nov 12th: G50-H3 (new room)
    • Starting Nov 12th the lecture will always take place in room G50-H3.
  • G50-H3 ist the big auditorium in buidling G50 in Große Steinernetischstraße, close to Breiter Weg. Please check the CampusFinder.
  • Exercises will start on November 5th (Monday slot) and November 9th (Friday slot)


  • Specific requirements of engineering applications
  • Overview of suitable data management solutions (database models, XML, file storage)
  • Specific solutions, e.g. CAD and geometrical data, electronical data, etc.
  • Product lifecycle management
