This paper details the approach for design a product variants based on the scalable product platforms, called scalable product variants. A short overview of the terms in product variety it is given. Support of design a scalable product variants is tied with the system managing of product structure and geometric information. Product platform model, as a basis for developing scalable product variants, is proposed by two information models. The first information model is focused on the product structure information and it is linked with the information model which is focused on geometric information of product.

Keywords: product platform, scalable product variants, product family
