Recent advances in web technologies have led to the concept of collaborative product design and development. This includes geographically separated teams, co-located over wide area networks for the marketing, design and manufacturing. In this paper a practice of implementing a nonnetworked knowledge-based system for product development over a networked environment. The integration enabled designers to collaborate in the product design process rather than just relaying on the knowledge stored in their own systems. This integration gives the product development more flexibility and provides early collaboration between the different product design phases.
