Abstract

Providing the right product information at the right time is an important factor for an efficient product development process and especially for the evaluation of product properties. But due to the mass of different documents and types of data representing product information and the highly dynamic and iterative processes a rigidly or statically linkage between all product and process information is almost impossible. Therefore a dynamic and generic linkage between product and process information is necessary to efficiently support the data logistic within the product development process and to safeguard the steady evaluation of product properties. This approach links product and process information as models within a semantic web. By the additional consideration of the employed tools and methods a quantifiable representation of the information flow within companies can be accomplished. The analysis of this information flow should support the project manager in planning which properties can be evaluated during the product development process with which tools or methods. Moreover a prediction of the quality of this evaluation and of the dependent product information is possible.
