Product development process modeling (PDPM) is one of the key techniques for product development (PD). The main aim of PDPM is to provide a product design chain (PDC) for PD. To increase the efficiency of PDPM, a project-driven e-design system is proposed in this paper. There are two modules in the system: task decomposition and product design chain construction. Additionally, key techniques for enabling the system are discussed. Finally, an example of steering oil pump design project is studied to demonstrate the system.
