Today, manufacturing companies face fierce international competition, where new products have to be developed and produced at an ever increasing pace. Thus, productivity in the product realization process is of uttermost importance. Companies form joint ventures and cooperate with subcontractors and consultants in order to speed up their work. To facilitate such sharing of work tasks, the use of IT tools, such as CAD, CAM, CAE and PDM systems is becoming a necessity.
