Abstract
Product development has to increasingly handle challenges such as highly competitive market scenarios and rapidly changing customer demands. The Industry 4.0 paradigm has brought about a new range of methods and technologies which can support industry in dealing with these challenges. This paper contributes a digital manufacturing model which aims to support industry to bridge the gap with this advanced digital technologies and foster integrated product development. This digital model achieves this aim by providing a means to illustrate how these technologies can be employed during the different phases of the factory life cycle. The digital manufacturing model also illustrates the soft and meta-skills which need to be developed in order to support digitisation of product development activities. A number of use cases are presented which explore how Industry 4.0 technologies can be implemented within an integrated product development environment.
