Abstract

It is claimed that the characteristics of practical product family development for configuration are not clear enough for the academia. Therefore, the characteristics are studied with three participative case studies and interviews in seven companies. The industrial cases are being studied from four standpoints (as cases of business, development, modularisation and configuration). The summary of the characteristics is reported and an analysis of the cases is given. The need for relating the business process re-engineering to product family architecture is emphasised.
