The topic of the paper is information models that are the basis for product configuration in the automotive industry. The subject is examined from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. In an empirical study, the product configuration information model of an automotive firm is mapped out and issues perceived as challenging by the firm identified. A comparison of the theoretical configuration models and practical models is presented. We identify areas in which the theoretical models offer more expressiveness that the automotive firm currently utilizes. However, we also observe that many of the firm’s issues with configuration have much do with the product’s design, and processes and methods for working with the information model, not just its information structure.
