Early phases of design process still lacks of the computer support, although it has been recognised as an important part of design process. Paper introduces an approach towards a feature-based product model incorporating representation scheme for capturing product semantics handled in the conceptual design phase. Features are then the information carriers that allow modelling the relationships between requirements of a product, its functional descriptions and physical solutions. They will also bring this information to the downstream applications and will allow, for instance, to keep track of the consistency between the concept, the design, and the manufacturing of a product.
