It can be summarized that previously many companies have been involved with development projects that aim for demonstrations and prototypes of a modular product family definition. However, without strategic investment in the organization capabilities as well as systematic processes and tools, the demonstrations do not ensure the transformation. This was the situation in some of the case companies that rolled out the first PLM system implementations during the project. Also, the breadth of the market offering may be very limited with a demonstration or proof-of-concept project. The ProMaGNet project consisted of industrial cases on PLM implementation, product design systemization, integrating 3D product models into review practices and product configuration, the analysis and capturing of product portfolio as configuration knowledge in sales and engineering configuration systems, etc. The experiences and capabilities developed in joint industrial case-projects and research tasks are collected in the themes of PLM capabilities.
