This paper discusses the information management (IM) requirements of a wide range of stakeholders from a typical engineering organisation. Based on multiple empirical studies undertaken at the University of Bath’s Innovative Design and Manufacturing Research Centre (IdMRC), collaborating universities and partner organisations, six scenarios have been constructed. Their contents reflect the main information management challenges facing today’s large engineering organisations. From these scenarios, five key themes are identified and the corresponding areas for future IM research are discussed.
