In order to master the constraints of an effective life cycle management, all kinds of data and information concerning the actual machine behavior need to be available. Latest developments in information and communication technologies allow a "look inside" the machine to visualize its actual status. This paper will establish a performance controlling system, including a fleet management system, to gain competitive advantages in manufacturing by focusing on the entire product life cycle.
