Modern production conditions require the application of the concept of distributing production. This approach means coordinative production in a number of small and middle size companies. Multiplex products, consisting of a number of parts, components, and modules are assembled in one function unit in one company, but they may not be manufactured in one place. Huge factory and production complex, which existed in our country, comprised all phases of product lifecycle, from the development of a concept solution to the assembly. Technology of product manufacturing, resource logistics, quality control, product testing and verification of product function characteristics all represented activities performed by specified departments. Designing and technology documentation was created on the basis of information given by the above mentioned departments. Today companies are specialized in partial technology processes. Hundreds, sometimes thousands of collaborative processes depend on workers interactions and communication in the product assembly phase. With an intensive coordination, all the manufacturing phases of one product design and technology documentation are produced, in digital form, on CAx workstation. The Product Lifecycle Management can be achieved by using specialized software solutions. Some of the solutions for the Product Lifecycle Management offer integrated portfolio for engineering design and production of products and services, which enables companies to create their own digital e-business projects.
