The importance of technology platforms in diversified companies as networks of unique technologies in diverse applications is increasing. The reason is that technology platforms support diversified companies to handle the conflicting priorities of fulfilling the customer demand for individualized innovations, while generating company-wide technological synergies. Thus, the success of diversified companies can be decisively determined by the implementation of technology platforms. A significant prerequisite for this matter, among others, is a coherent concept for the systematization of the requirements of technology platforms. In practice however, systematizing the requirements of technology platforms is a huge challenge for most of the diversified companies interested in apply ing the concept of technology platforms. The reason is that there is no established opinion in theory how the requirements of technology platforms should be systematically described and how they should be systematically structured. Therefore, the objective of this paper is the development of a model realizing a systematical description and structuring of the requirements of technology platforms in diversified companies.
