This paper reviews the industrial implementation of product architecture design at a large commercial vehicle manufacturer. The steps taken towards a full implementation as well as the value of architecture as perceived at the different stages of implementation are reviewed and discussed. As a basis, an architecture framework in its specific implementation is presented to illustrate the scope of architecture design at the company. It is discussed in its evolution to show how the implementation progressed and how the know-how about architecture was built.
