Abstract (english): 
In this publication, a study is conducted in the context of cross-departmental and cross-disciplinary product development. The focus is on the industry observable requirements and implementations of cross-departmental and cross-disciplinary perspectives. By interviewing industry experts from a broad spectrum of industries, a reflection of regarded requirements, prioritized challenges and current implementations is created. As result a current status regarding team compositions in product development, as well as emerging and challenges and relevant requirements will be identified. By analyzing the team composition, it can be shown that cross-departmental and cross-disciplinary collaboration already exists in many structures is elaborated. Thus, it can be deduced that the challenges to cross-departmental and cross-disciplinary collaboration are relevant in practice. These challenges are evaluated and prioritized according to relevance by the industry experts in this publication, which facilitates a systematically consideration in further research of challenges in product development. As a third component of the study, changes in the previous considerations of requirements towards idealized considerations across departments and disciplines are presented. The results showed that the relevance of the integration of requirements is increasing and to what extent the distribution of direct and indirect requirements can develop.
