THE ROLE AND APPLICATION OF ACTIVITIES IN THE INTEGRATED PRODUCT ENGINEERING MODEL (iPeM)
To depict all sorts of possible design situations while providing detailed support on operative work level is one difficulty of current modelling approaches. The Integrated Product Engineering Model (iPeM) bases on a systemic comprehension of engineering processes from an abstract meta model to application in practice. This paper investigates the course of the transformation from meta to implementation model and elaborates ideas for an approach on how to improve the applicability of the iPeM. The development process of systems of objectives is used as exemplary implementation case.
