Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project has been to enable a significantly improved productivity in process and quality planning at Swedish vehicle manufacturers, their subcontractors and other manufacturing companies through application of a model-driven approach. Today, lot of time is spent on creating, managing and maintaining quality assurance documents. When engineers have to devote time to this, their competence is not used in an efficient way. With a model-driven approach less valuable engineering time would have to be spent on document creation and management.
Expected results and effects
By representing product, process and resource data in digital coherent models, the time needed to create and manage quality assurance documents becomes reduced. When less engineering time need to be spent on document creation and maintenance, valuable engineering competence can be used for innovation and process improvements instead of non-value adding document creation and management. A model-driven approach is estimated to increase the productivity in process and quality planning by 20 -40%.
Planned approach and implementation
In order to answer the stated research questions of the project and reach stated objectives, following methods have been used. - Literature studies - Studies of computer applications for process and quality planning - Workshops - Case studies
