The extension of time-to-market and time-to-production of new products is a result of waste in engineering processes. Responsible for this waste is the typically fragmented procedure for the engineering of products in companies across different functional units and across companies along the value chain, requiring input from experts from a variety of disciplines using different methods and tools. This leads to sub-optimal decisions, and unused knowledge as well as experiences. To tackle the resulting challenges a solution consisting of a platform, specific modules and an ontology is presented. The ontology serves as an interoperable model and integrating element for the platform. Second main element are modules to realize tools to assist in product and process development, analysis, virtual testing, and optimization based on heuristic methods and simulation. Third building block of the solution is an open engineering platform laid on existing tools and libraries.
