In the recent years, it can be observed that the products are launched by rapidity and short time. The lifecycles of user equipment has been shortened, the flow of information accelerated, the freely available information more widely accessible. One of the conditions of competitiveness for the arisen problems is the rapid and optimal solutions. Using a software or system, which supports the knowledge based design (KBD) the time and costs of the product development phase can be reduced. In this chapter the results of a product design and development process implemented in a PLM system will be presented on a ball screw drive mechanisms focusing on its returning guide.
