The objective of Manutelligence platform is to manage manufacturing intelligence; all data, information and knowledge related to the Product Service (PS) and its lifecycle. The platform is based on two existing platforms and some analysis tools (for example LCA and LCC). It was developed according to the needs of four use cases in different industrial fields (automotive, ship, smart house, 3D-printing). The chapter describes the four-phase methodology to define the common aggregated requirements for the platform. The phases include requirement elicitation, structuration and organization, analysis and refinement and validation. In the elicitation phase the requirements were identified from the use cases, in the structuration and refinement phases they were further consolidated, categorized and processed towards aggregated requirements and in the validation phase the resulting aggregated requirements were compared to the original use case requirements. The chapter also shows the main results of each phase.
