The reference model OAIS, which docuteam cosmos follows conceptually, is based on a modularization of functions and areas of responsibility. Accordingly, docuteam cosmos is not a monolithic software solution, but a package of different programs, each of which implements individual components of OAIS. These programs communicate with each other via defined interfaces and enable modularized and flexible solutions. Widespread, internationally recognized standards are used at these interfaces, so that docuteam cosmos can also interact with third-party tools in libraries and archives.
The "software family" of docuteam cosmos is continuously being developed and currently includes the following components:
