1 An e-learning platform for Product Data Management Dr.A.S.Deshpande,Gogte Institute of Technology,Belgaum, India
2 What’s Product Data ?Product Data Management (PDM), use of software or other tools to track and control Product data.Technical specs, Manufacture and development data, costs in creation and launch of the product.e-Manufacturing…PDM importance growing.
3 PDM –A central knowledge repository for process and product history.Promotes integration and data exchange among all business users interacting with the product viz. project managers, engineers, sales people, buyers, QA teams etc.Information on products/services-along entire Product Life.
4 PDMProvides a unified perspective & helps integrate business processesThe need to manage, exchange & interpret product data has increased awareness of the role & benefit of PDMThe benefits of reduced costs & shorter times to market have also made PDM popularThere is a clear evolution from CAD data exchange to Product Data exchange
5 PDM & PLMProduct data management (PDM) is the business function often within Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) that is responsible for the creation, management and publication of product data.
6 PDM if used with World Wide Web (www) technology can enable a company to build an open system and make engineering information available throughout its operations.
11 Airbus 3XX, double deck,wide-body jet airliner Worlds largest passenger airliner…Airports had to expand facilities.Maiden flight, April 2005.January 2012, 253 orders…only 69 delivered.
12 Need for Partnerships in Airbus 380 development For the Airbus A380 programme the use of global partners was essential, one reason being to share the burden of the huge $10Bn development costs.The use of suppliers as partners who would invest in the development phase was needed; these partners are known as risk sharing partners (RSP).
17 DMU Why use a Digital Mock-Up? A Digital Mock-Up is a simulation based on numerical and/or digital models that represents partially or globally a product or part of a product (airframe, systems, avionics, …).Why use a Digital Mock-Up?To support the analysis of the product during its different phases (project, feasibility, definition, post EIS).DMU is used to ease design, understanding, validation, modification, information, selling, support & maintenance, ...DMU is used to replace partially or totally the physical mock-up.
18 Obstacles to Data Transfer Multiplicity of incompatible CAD/CAM/CAE toolsProprietary (native) formats for data storageInconsistencies and incompleteness in dataAbsence of neutral standards addressing aboveEver-changing software platformsUnlimited boundaries…e-Domain
