The handling of knowledge represents the key to competitiveness, with company-specific product and process knowledge. Knowledge-based engineering facilitates new product development by automating repetitive design tasks through acquisition, capture, transform, retention, share, and (re-)use of product and process knowledge. This paper highlights two case studies: Automation of the validation procedure in the concept development of passenger cars, in particular in case of modular architecture and multi-brand product strategy, and a process chain template for application in aerospace industry.
