In or­der to show or learn how the PI-Class® method works in prac­tice you can down­load and use our PI-Fan use case. It com­pris­es con­tent mo­d­ules to­gether with the as­so­ci­at­ed clas­si­fi­ca­tions. It de­mon­s­trates the use of the method on the ba­sis of fic­tio­n­al ven­ti­la­tion fans cov­er­ing 18 dif­fer­ent prod­uct variants.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

The PI-Fan da­ta can be used to de­mon­s­trate the con­sis­tent use of clas­si­fied con­tent not on­ly in con­tent ma­n­age­ment sys­tems but al­so in con­tent de­liv­ery and other sys­tems.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

As a sys­tems provider, you can use the in­clud­ed clas­si­fi­ca­tion ma­tri­ces to show users how they can lev­er­age the func­tio­n­al­i­ty of your sys­tem with clas­si­fied con­tent.

If you would like to im­ple­ment PI-Class® in your sys­tem and reg­is­ter your im­ple­men­ta­tion with the I4ICM Stein­beis Cen­ter, you need to ap­p­ly the log­i­cal con­cept of in­trin­sic and ex­trin­sic clas­si­fi­ca­tions and the variant ma­n­age­ment as shown in the PI-Fan use case.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

The PI-Fan da­ta can be free­ly used within the terms of the MIT li­cense.

The PI-Fan and the cor­re­spond­ing con­tent of its 18 variants is now in­clud­ed in nu­mer­ous CMS im­ple­men­ta­tions of lead­ing ven­dors. It is used as a show case and a ref­er­ence mod­el of sys­tem func­tio­n­al­i­ties.

PI-Class® is al­so the ba­sis for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of me­ta­da­ta con­cepts wi­hin the de­vel­op­ment of the tekom-iiRDS stan­dard. The PI-Fan serves as a first show case and as a ref­er­ence mod­el for con­cepts of in­for­ma­ton in­terchange and "In­dus­try 4.0" con­cepts.
