    The main aim of the EXPIDE IST-1999-29105 cluster project is to combine the knowledge gained by many different European funded research projects to create a coherent view about extended products in dynamic enterprises. This paper explains briefly the new term "Extended Product" and describes how a physical product can be extended with intangible functions and services. An introduction to the Observatory of research work in the area is given together with the first observed general trends.
