Abstract

Many automotive companies are developing products using a platform approach. This approach puts new requirements on product and process modeling and the design methods employed. This paper presents an approach to support platform based product development through an integrated and configurable product and manufaturing system model. This modeling approach is also put into the larger context of the company through an outline of an integrated view of the three domains: product, manufacturing, and sales & marketing. The described approach is based on the concept of configurable components as the core element in the model providing for modeling of the required product variety of a platform.
