One of the major challenges in product development today is the international competition which is characterized by growing innovation and dynamics. The shorter duration of marketing of products which, in individual cases, is already shorter than the development period, requires that enterprises come out with a growing number of new developments and to speed up their planning and design activities, so that they can survive on the market. New forms for the time and flow-optimized planning and design of products are inevitable. Co-operative, virtual planning and design will make a decisive contribution to the innovative product development in the next millennium.
