An extended parametric information model is presented in order to integrate product data based on parameters and constraints for design process reasons. Constraints represent parametric relations between CAx models and allow to share data across design teams and activities. A collaborative design system, which is called Constraint Linking Bridge (Colibri), was implemented in order to assist engineers exchanging product data and working on engineering information in a cooperative way. A use case shows the application of the software for the development of an integrated wheel suspension.
