In Product Service System (PSS) development, understanding the customer use of goods is vital, since the product per se is not sold but rather the performance it brings to the purchaser in terms of added value. Moving away from offering just a product or service to become a provider of “integrated solutions” implies inevitable changes in the way knowledge is managed and shared in a cross company environment. The main aim of this paper is, on one hand, to provide examples of how PSS raise the demand of such cross-functional knowledge sharing; on the other hand it points out a set of requirements for the successful development of Knowledge Enabled Engineering systems supporting a PSS paradigm in a Virtual Enterprise context

Keywords: Product-Service Systems, Knowledge Enabled Engineering, Virtual Enterprise
