Abstract:For a competitive (re)design; planning and usage of Industrial Product-Service System (IPS²); knowledge about the usage patterns of the customer; the IPS² system behavior and the remaining lifetime of products is needed. The data from the operation phase is the source to discover this knowledge. With the help of software agent technology product- and process data can be made locally available - data which are spatially and temporally distributed along the life cycles of IPS² in different media and formats. In a next step it will be processed with the help of data mining algorithms in an appropriate form to knowledge; as required by the application. The Virtual Life Cycle Unit (VLCU) is a concept for such an information system. It is an information technology network; which appears to humans or machines as a single unit to support the supply chain and communication processes in the complete IPS² life cycle.

In this paper the technology; data acquiring and communication concepts of the VLCU in the IPS² life phases is being discussed and presented.
