The CGM Vision

The Production Graphics Suite is a state of the art CGM solution offered by Larson Software. The CGM Eco System is the ideal strategy to cost effectively manage your technical graphics archive. The best comparison to this CGM strategy is the management of XML textual information. XML data has the structure and flexibility to manage and publish from a single instance of the file. This strategy can also work in the graphics environment using the CGM format. CGM has similar properties to XML, it does have a structure more commonly known as a profile. This means the CGM file has attributes that can be checked and validated. The CGM file is also interoperable meaning it can be used for various purposes and with differing software applications. The advantages and benefits of using a single instance of an electronic file are proven. Performance will be improved of the whole graphics management system, configuration and revision control, publishing both hard copy and electronically. Larson enables a CGM Eco System with robust and reliable technologies and unrivalled expertise. We not only provide software but also share our expertise with consultancy with respect to generating, managing and deploying your technical graphics.
