Role Of The Information And Knowledge In Digital Enterprise Technology
The globalization and its consequences have driven the competition to a new (probably again temporary) peak: the Internet has made not only the (main) information about every product, but also its comparison with its competitors just a few clicks away. Since the customers’ demands for new functionality, high quality, fast delivery, low prices and good service are permanently increasing, for remaining competitive the enterprises have to invest in novel technologies, allowing high quality despite low production costs and good management of their own know-how. Nowadays the know-how and the knowledge around the product development process represent the most important aspects of companies to stay in market. It is essential to speed up product development process with a high quality to get competitive advantages. At present, several methods exist to support the Simultaneous Engineering (SE). The speed and the flexibility of the development process depend on the information, its representation and its transfer. The goal of our new approach is to minimize the waste of time by improving the support for the data transfer of all necessary information between the departments, involved in the development.
