    Aim of our research is to develop support for better human-machine system design. The fundamental idea of th support is based on virtual engineering based knowledge transfer within a product life, between designers and other stakeholders. This paper proposes a holistic practical framework model which describes needed elements to conduct the knowledge transfer, i.e. PLM model and enabling embodiments of the model. Examples of the model usage are described in the paper as well. The practical model is based on case studies, therefore it's validity is restricted to similar type of settings. In future, goal is to generalize the model and establish a link to design theory. Elements of the model and industrial benefits will be detailed in future as well.
