In times of globalization the importance of cross-company collaboration has significantly increased. An appropriate example is the automotive industry where Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) need to collaborate with several globally distributed suppliers to develop innovative high-tech cars. In this case, sharing information with the collaboration partner is a complex and risky process for the company but nevertheless an essential factor for development projects to be successful. Knowledge is the most important resource in today’s economy, especially in specific branches [I]. However, the damage caused by industrial espionage and product piracy has continually increased [2]. Thus, the protection of IP (intellectual property) during data exchange within the product development process is challenging and highly depends on trust between the collaboration partners. Usually, rights management in data exchange is mainly based on user groups and roles as well as by objects and projects. This classification does not meet the requirements of rights management in this paper. A new approach is introduced to manage data exchange rights by trust and reputation in product development collaboration.
