In the domain of machine engineering the reuse of de sign data is an important but complex instrument to im prove quality and shorten development time. The success ful reuse of design data requires both, a machine engineer ing specific methodology and the support by appropriate information system technology. In this paper we introduce a machine engineering methodology that is based on sev eral reuse stages. Our approach to support the methodol ogy with an appropriate information system uses a simple graph based information model where reuse stages are re flected as layers. We also show how reuse is represented in the model.
