Maestro was founded to explore using an open-source development model for business infrastructure software, reducing overhead and development costs. It’s purpose was to document system requirements using non-confidential user stories, workflows and source data, and support open white-box development at the system level. Maestro provided separation between confidential enterprise information and the development team, and supported an efficient, flexible, and cost-effective application development within a mature industry incumbent. Maestro later came to include a proof-of-concept reference application called Maestro PLM. The Maestro Project is hosted on GitHub and uses the business-friendly permissive BSD 2-Clause License.
Maestro continues to provide a platform for exploring enterprise business software systems in general. The workflows and data can be used to explore similar requirements within their own organizations.

The Maestro environment can be understood as a set of inter-related modules, similar to other enterprise software.
- Parts (part numbers, revisions, sources, bills-of-materials…)
- Projects (people, schedule, effort, material…)
- Issues (relationships, investigations, conclusions, actions…)
- Stock (serial numbers and quantities, purchasing, production, sales…)
- Files (engineering and ad hoc documents, revisions, author, editors, tags…)
- Users (user truth, role-based access control…)
The Maestro environment exhibits Transparency with Trust for data shared across engineering, manufacturing, support and administration teams.
