Abstract: AbstractWith the increasing use of plastic components in the product assembly, the product development process also involves the concurrent participation of the plastic injection mold design and fabrication at the early product design stage. This collaboration is typically cross-enterprise and cross-domain in nature. This thesis presents a systematic management framework to support collaboration among distributed injection mold design and manufacturing companies. This system framework includes process modeling and re-engineering by deploying the tool of design structure matrix (DSM) to identify the essential information transfer requirements or a??technical structurea?? in plastic part design and pertinent activities in the injection mold design; a process simulation that is based on the analysis of information loop at the upfront stage; and the system implementation with a case study. This framework aims to facilitate the rationalization and automation in mold project, and improve the efficiency and quality in injection mold fabrication.
