Abstract

In developing new and innovative products in the age of information technology, knowledge and information management are becoming increasingly important factors for companies. The early design phase is especially essential to the success of a company. According to the differences of existing products, the tasks of a designer are very heterogeneous. To support engineers in the field of product development, an approach for supporting engineers with information is necessary. Such an approach has been generated within the pinngate-project at the pmd department at the Darmstadt University of Technology. The paper presents the concept of a web-based information tool which is based on a sub-project of pinngate and relates the first experiences using the tool in a R&D-project.

Keywords: design knowledge and collaboration, IT in product development, representations of design information
