  • Abstract To compete in the global market, product platform development (PPD) plays a crucial role in developing multiple products. While this new approach benefits the manufacturer to target broader market more efficiently, a great amount of information and variety of expertise regarding the lifecycle of the product platform need to be shared and integrated along the PPD project implementation. In addition, as an emerging trend, PPD is often demands collaboration across business partners that are distributed geographically and organizationally.
    Considering PPD as a knowledge sharing process with intensive cooperative communication in a distributed computing environment, this study proposes an information system to facilitate the project manager to control the PPD project and the design team to perform various tasks regarding the product platform’s lifecycle. To develop the information system, object-oriented methodology (OOM) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) are adopted and integrated in an analytical framework. Focusing on the PPD scenarios, OOM is to identify and classify businesses objects, and SOA is to prototype the information system. A case on electronic reading device development will be depicted to demonstrate proposed information system.
