This paper discusses the correlation between characteristics of the design process and the determination of PLM architectures. Based on first results from ongoing research activities with industrial partners, a process-oriented approach to the determination of PLM architectures is presented. This approach helps to analyze processes - especially design processes - and to develop - based on the results of this analysis - suitable PLM architectures. Future work will focus mainly on a transfer of the concept to a more abstract process level and on the formalization of the presented approach.
