Today, within the global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) approach, success of design, industrialization and production activities depends on the ability to improve interaction between information systems that handle such activities. Enterprises deploy mainly PLM system, Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) in order to manage sufficient product-related information and provide better customer-products. This paper proposes a methodological approach to improve the quality of data exchanged between engineering and production. This involves the integration among information systems especially the PLM-MES integration. Thus, the proposed approach aims to overcome the problem of data heterogeneity by proposing a mediation system resolving syntactic and semantic conflicts of data managed by these systems.
