Global manufacturing business requires a platform to support dispersed partners working together to bid for a contract. The bidding process usually involves rapid product definition in order to prepare the technical proposal that gives a competitive advantage. This paper presents our findings from the Viewbid Project of the IMS Globeman'21 Consortium, in which a web-based bidding workbench was developed and a proof-of-concept system has also been implemented.
