To support life cycle management for an increasing number of artefacts in a global economy, new functions must be implemented on top of the global information networks such as the worldwide web, extranets and intranets connecting databases and (product) data management systems. The artefactual wheel-work is a framework for systematizing the requirements for ubiquitous artefact life support services. This paper: (1) summarizes global trends in industry leading to an increased demand for life-cycle modelling; (2) introduces the so-called artefactual wheel-work as a framework for systematizing life-cycle related models and techniques; and (3) derives generic requirements for product life-cycle support services in a global information infrastructure
