Abstract

This paper addresses information exchange between design and manufacturing from both perspectives. On the basis of case study research, the findings illustrate that there are differences between the information required by manufacturing and the information required by design. While the production system designer relies largely on feed-forward information concerning product-centric issues, design engineers request feedback information in form of both product-centric and project-centric information. The paper further elaborates on how information should be exchanged in order to minimise the risk of misinterpretation of transferred information.
