In this paper the fundamentals of product configuration methods, technologies and systems in the product design and sales activities are presented. Based on the industrial paradigm "Factory is a product" it is shown, how the methods and functionalities of product configuration and engineering are migrated to an innovative approach aiming at configuring and engineering the factories and their corresponding manufacturing processes. Therefore a motivation scenario and the architecture have been conceived, consisting of the actual state-of-the-art digital tools for factory, equipment and process planning. This architecture has been enhanced to build-up the dynamic configuration knowledge through an automated workflow, using both automated simulation and optimisation tools.
