Ha13c - Supporting Collaborative Product Development through Automated Interpretation of Artifacts

Last modified Jun 4, 2013


Organizations are increasingly challenged by the complexity of products and changing requirements through globalized competition. As a reaction, organizations require novel solutions for the development, marketing, and production of new products and services. Often small and medium-sized enterprises cannot develop an idea to the final product completely on their own due to their limited resources. Hence, they collaborate with partners to develop highly innovative and knowledge-intensive products. Collaboration models describe in detail how this goal can be achieved. These models can be supported by an implemented and executable version thereof. This paper describes an implementation of a collaboration model from the European research project SmartNets using an automated interpretation of artifacts. We explain the collaboration model, describe the implementation and evaluate our proposed solution by means of an example from one of the projects industrial networks.
