Driving factors

Driving Factors

  • Product data is distributed among RDECs, PMs, LCMCs and OEMs

  • Product data formats and systems to manage product data are not standardized – CAD and PDM interoperability issues

  • Data exchange and collaboration among organizations is inefficient and time consuming

  • Fundamental requirement towards a true Army Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) strategy (SALE)

  • Need for integrated product data throughout the product’s lifecycle spanning both engineering and logistics

    • Conceptual models, 2D drawings, 3D solid models, modeling & simulation data, analysis models, test data, repair & maintenance history, IETMs, assembly instructions

  • Need for a single set of logically unified product data

PDE2005


Challenges

Challenges

  • Heterogeneous systems and formats for product data

  • Extended lifecycle

  • Legacy data

  • Systems of systems integration

  • Spiral development

  • Performance Based Logistics (PBL)

  • Contractor Logistics Support (CLS)

  • Parts obsolescence

  • Disposal issues

Standards vs. Point-to-point Solutions

PDE2005


The need for standards

The Need for Standards

  • No guarantee that any of these commercial systems will last as long as the Army’s product lines

  • Version independence and upward compatibility

  • Variety of commercial middleware solutions are available

    • Point to point solutions

    • Expensive to maintain and upgrade

  • DoD mandate for open architecture standards-based systems leveraging best commercial practices

PDE2005


The solution

The Solution

  • Use of international standards ISO 10303 – also known as STEP PDM Schema

  • STEP is a neutral format not just for 2D/3D product data but also for PDM interoperability

  • Specific STEP Application Protocols are already widely used in private industry

  • STEP is well supported by most of the major PDM/ CAD vendors – PTC, SAP, UGS, MatrixOne, Dassault

  • STEP is starting to be standardized for 3D solid models at the DoD (Navy and Air Force have mandated it already)

  • Enormous potential for long term retention and archival of product data

STEP has the potential to save $928 million (2001$) per year by reducing interoperability

problems in the automotive, aerospace, and shipbuilding industries alone

Vision

Vision

  • Federated system of systems approach to product data management

  • Web-based access

  • Product data on demand

  • Product-centric data management

  • Single access and control point

  • Improved real-time data collaboration

  • Implement open data standards and best practices

  • Manage heterogeneous data formats

  • Automate CM/DM functions with workflows

  • Manage product structures/ BOMs

  • Maintain “as-designed”, “as-built”, “as-maintained” BOMs

  • Manage serialized parts

  • Access OEM controlled product data

  • Integration to ERP and logistics systems

Implementation methodology

Implementation Methodology

  • Import PDM Object Model into EPM Model Migrator software

  • Map objects and attributes between PDM and STEP

  • Where one-one mapping is not possible, write code in EXPRESS-X

  • Package software as a translator

  • Web enabled links inside PDM callable by user screen or callable as batch process
