On the concept of "integration"

Abstract
There are a number of interpretations of the concept

“integration” in Product Development (PD). Different

sources tend to use different terminologies for

describing the same phenomenon of integration, or

use the same term for different purposes. This paper

strives to capture the essence of the concept of

“integration” within a product development project

by looking for what is integrated and how integration

is established. As the intent purpose is to contribute

There are a number of interpretations of the concept

“integration” in Product Development (PD). Different

sources tend to use different terminologies for

describing the same phenomenon of integration, or

use the same term for different purposes. This paper

strives to capture the essence of the concept of

“integration” within a product development project

by looking for what is integrated and how integration

is established. As the intent purpose is to contribute

to a better understanding of the concept, an

extensive literature review is performed. On the basis

of current thinking, recommendations for competitive

integrated product development are explored.

A conceptual framework for the concept of integration

in product development is also provided in order

to indicate a sense of future direction. True integration

is founded upon the bridging of knowledge,

and the literature on product development needs to be

further systematized for the structuring of *Integration

mechanisms (*Im) that establish such integration.

With a holistic view of *Im, true performance

of IPD can be measured. (Less)
