While industry vastly undergoes digitalization, knowledge-based engineering becomes a powerful tool, helping enterprises to operate in context of shorter product life cycles and complex value chains. However, there are several challenges to be addressed in order to make knowledge-based engineering a common industry practice. There is a need for affordable tools, trained professionals, and extended use of outcomes of knowledge-based engineering processes beyond design phase of product life cycle. This article describes how web-based system delivering mobile augmented reality experience in browser may leverage results of product design process implemented with knowledge-based engineering tools in order to integrate information, and support its integrity and consistency for different stakeholders along the product life cycle. The approach relies on use of open standards and libraries in order to insure affordability and ease of integration, which is necessary for wider adoption of knowledge-based engineering among small and medium enterprises.
