ASAM CC (Container Catalog) is used for describing engineering objects such as source code, compiled objects or documentation files. The objects are described with meta information such as creator, name, description, version, engineering domain, configuration and storage location. The standard is primarily used for exchanging information about engineering objects between OEMs and suppliers. Since ASAM CC-compliant description files are based upon XML with a standardized schema, tools and data repositories can import and export the data easily. Incremental data exchange is supported. ASAM CC has the following main features:
Continental Automotive AG, MAN Truck & Bus AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, XI-Works.
