ARTICLE: INTEGRATED PRODUCT LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT

Why integrated Product Lifecycle Management is of existential significance for digitalisation strategy and what requirements will be set in respect of the modernisation of existing PLM systems

Every one of you is familiar with the highly polished advertising videos in which technology visions suggest the end of complicated development processes. In this, engineering via augmented reality becomes child’s play, the design is optimised in real-time feedback loops in the virtual space and then produced on site using additive manufacturing processes. All of this is framed by artificial intelligence. Who still needs Product Lifecycle Management in that environment?

CASE STUDY: CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT

Configuration Management in accordance with defence industry standards

Construction projects in the security and defence industry are necessarily subject to high standards with regard to operability and usability of the systems to be developed. By building an integrated configuration management system at an early stage, product complexity can be handled in a manageable way and benefits can thus be reaped on a sustainable basis.

ARTICLE: AGILITY WITH MBSE

How MBSE makes product complexity more manageable and brings agility into the development process

Have you ever asked yourself the question of who will still be able to maintain an overview of the increasingly complex systems in your company or in your customers’ businesses in ten years’ time? The answer to this is just as short as it is sobering. Nobody!

CASE STUDY: MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE FOR PRODUCTION DATA

Development of management software for production data in an ongoing billion-euro project

Digitalisation does not work without interfaces. This becomes really clear especially when you try to ensure consistent process chains beyond the boundaries of your own company. Custom applications need to be developed and integrated for highly specific requirements in order to be able to ensure seamless process chains from the supplier through to the customer.

CASE STUDY: EARNED VALUE MANAGEMENT

Earned Value Management as an automated early warning system and management tool

Modern development projects require innovative management methods to enable control of the dimensions of time, costs and performance in a single integrated system. Implemented correctly, this is precisely where earned value management (EVM) can be an effective project management tool.

CASE STUDY: ALFA SHIP & CREW MANAGEMENT

Within the scope of a project tender, Alfa Ship & Crew Management GmbH threw its hat into the ring for the provision of crew and services to carry out test runs in a shipbuilding order. The short time available and the extensive requirements profile made it a challenge to draw up the tender. Methodical guidance with well-founded expertise in the ship newbuilding business was therefore required.

CASE STUDY: REQUIREMENTS MANAGEMENT

Requirements Management even in the early stages of tender preperation

Developing safety-critical systems involves particularly high demands on the system architecture and high degrees of traceability across all levels. Using the right methods ensures that the groundwork is laid for the construction of a comprehensive overall system architecture even in the early stages of the requirements analysis and tender preparation.
