This paper presents a systematic approach, from domain investigation and functional requirement analysis, through modelling to implementation, to development of a collaborative data management framework that makes use of object-oriented techniques. The framework can support information sharing and team data management in concurrent product and process development by providing functions for project configuration, personal product and process item management, and team library management. Establishing this framework involves: I identification of functional requirements for computer-aided engineering data management through the investigation of a concurrent product delivery process with emphasis on product and process development; ii use of system engineering and objectoriented modelling techniques for development of the proposed framework. A product structure and a project configuration are devised for the development of an object model, and a functional model. They are used together as the basic construct of the collaborative team data management framework.
