    Abstract

    Currently, companies face the unprecedented challenges of the global marketplace, collaborative environments and the entire product lifecycle. There are new requirements for product representations, including: platform/application independence, support for the product lifecycle, rapidly sharing information between geographically distributed applications and users, and protection of commercial security. To meet these, some lightweight representations have been developed and applied in different industries. This paper highlights some limitations in the current applications, and presents a framework of lightweight representations for the product lifecycle. In the proposed framework, a markup method is applied to the whole product lifecycle. The approach is demonstrated with an industrial case study.
