Sustainability requires localization of manufacturing sites, especially in developing countries – even when products are previously designed globally. However, the establishment of manufacturing/production locations in these countries poses crucial challenges for companies that do not yet have facilities or experience in developing countries. For this reason, production transfer planning based on verifiable facts is essential. Therefore, we present a framework to develop production transfer requirements based on the methodic proceedings of requirements engineering – discovery, classification, prioritization and specification. We focus on the identification of stakeholders within the transfer processes. In addition, the classification of the requirements, their correlation, and prioritization are included. The application is conducted exemplarily as part of the aCar mobility project, which plans the transfer of an electric vehicle to developing countries. In conclusion, we present a framework to support production transfer planning and show applicability executing the framework on a current project.
