Abstract: The development process for a Functional Product (FP) is complex and there is a need to coordinate, monitor, control and share information as well as to communicate properly among the parties involved in the process. This paper proposes a conceptual development process to manage the FP development, including development of hardware, software, service support system and how to manage the operation of an FP. Further, challenges related to the integrated development of FPs are also discussed.
