Contents of product development knowledge have to be available in a broad range and rank high in quality for teaching, learning and application. Individuality in presenting and high flexibility in use and arrangement are requested. Furthermore, the collaboration of different authors with different background is aimed to create a common competence pool in the range of product development. Therefore an approach to modularization, filing and accessing of various contents of product development knowledge will be applied. Contents of product development knowledge are modularized based on three levels — elements, modules and containers — and they are linked and integrated into the competence pool. Considering the requirements of different users, individual and specific documents can be created out of the modularized contents, e.g., material for a specific lecture. Appropriate modularization is considered as a basis for higher quality and improvement of communication and collaboration.
