Integrated product development in virtual enterprises supported by web-based applications Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • The era of information age and globalization has created a situation of increased international competition. In this scenario the tasks of design and manufacturing are execllted by different facilities usually at different geographically locations and the information has to be passed among the different phases of product development. In order to support better all the Product Life Cycle activities, modeling tools and computer applications have been created. On this research project Web-based applications have been developed between UC-Berkeley and ITESM to demonstrate how virtual collaborative product development can be achieved in Virtual Enterprises. A case study is presented to demonstrate how collaborative design for High Tech Products can be undertaken. ¬© 2004 by Springer Science+Business Media New York.
