An information model that is capturing product and manufacturing system design, as well as the idea of concurrent engineering, is emphasized in this paper. First, a case product is decomposed along with its manufacturing system, according to the Theory of Domains. Here, the manufacturing system is regarded as a technical system that is equivalent to a product. Thereafter, the generalization of the case study is conducted by creation of an UML (Unified Modeling Language) information model. The UML-model is containing some general couplings between products and manufacturing systems. This formalized map of the area of product and manufacturing systems development is also harmonized with the international STEP AP214 standard.
