Abstract

This paper deals with challenges regarding the design and implementation of a technology platform framework. The framework is intended to be used as a basis for pre-developent also called technology development and when designing and configuring new products. Since technology platforms enable more reuse on a higher abstraction level compared to traditional product platforms, several challenges arise. This paper will elaborate on organizational needs and tools for facilitating the internal knowledge reuse. In this context web based tools and checklists will be introduced. There is also a discussion regarding wiki tools and implementation of IT support tools. The research has been done in close collaboration between Chalmers University and a Swedish supplier in the aero engine industry.
