Software (SW) is an increasingly important part of many types of products. Companies designing and producing mechanical and hardware products have problems integrating the mechanics and hardware design process with the software design process. The different requirements for the information used and the use of separate information systems makes information management a difficult task. Therefore, many companies are facing a strong need to integrate both the processes and the information systems. This paper describes the processes and discusses their information need. An integration is proposed, from a process, information and tool perspective.
