    Modern enterprises have to face the challenge of how to adapt to changing operating procedures within both their supplier and their customer environment. The desire to satisfy these new demands has lead to the development of new business processes that focus on a higher level of expectations as regards customer service orientation and customization. There are several ways in which this can be obtained. In this paper one of the essential means to reach these demands will be described. Research has been carried out at the Centre for Product Modelling at the Technical University of Denmark in order to develop and implement a structured procedure for building product models. In the following focus will be on the adaption of product modelling techniques when dealing with companies in a network. Four different network types will be introduced. They will be used to describe different product model scenarios.
