The 42-month LinkedDesign project aims through its deliverables (both reports and prototypes) to develop aLinked Engineering and Manufacturing Platform with the following capabilities:

1) Data federation: LEAP federates all relevant information, across trusted sources in the product lifecycle, independent of its format, location and origination time.

2) Context-driven access and analysis of federated information: Besides the unified access to the integrated information, LEAP will provide specific means like sentiment analysis and simulations to analyze the integrated information.

3) User collaboration: LEAP is user centric rather than information centric. To foster collaboration between users across different disciplines, LEAP will use and extend lean engineering principles and implement a collaboration workbench enabling effective internal and external collaboration.

4) Feedback into existing systems: In addition to pulling data from existing data sources and systems, LEAP will provide tight connections to the federated systems (e.g. CAx), in order to push back enriched information to them.
