On The Development Of New Modeling Concepts For Product Lifecycle Management In Engineering Enterprises
Source: University of Kaiserslautern
Fast changes in today globalized business contexts, stricter becoming product and environmental legislations, and increasing complexity of products and related nowadays flexible engineering processes are some of the drivers for a further consideration of today applied concepts of multidisciplinary Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) which leverages engineering discipline specific Product Data Management (PDM) systems as backbone for an integrated product and process management throughout the entire product lifecycle. This paper outlines concepts for a holistic approach denoted Engineering Networks aiming at coping with the aforementioned challenges. These concepts are the blueprint for the current implementation of Engineering Networks in a research project.
