Product Life-Cycle Management (PLM) and Product Data Management (PDM) systems aim to facilitate the capture and dissemination of information throughout the product life-cycle by providing an artefact-centric approach to Information Management. Work is progressing in providing three dimensional artefact-based user interfaces to PLM/PDM and in contribution to this field, this paper describes the design and verification or a number of Visual Information Objects (VIO), visual markers that indicate the presence of information within the three dimensional artefact space.
