ViP-RoaM Objectives

Defining a Virtual Product

Creation strategy enabling

European Industry to improve

their product creation

processes to be successful in

international market

Description of necessary RTD

activities for the coming 5-10

years along with a concerted

RTD implementation path

Goal / Vision of the producing industry

„

Goals of the Automotive & Aerospace industry

Reduce time to market

Reduce costs (development & manufacturing & maintenance)

Increase Safety (“Zero Accident Strategy”)

Allow maximum customisation/ individualization of products

Increase “ecological friendliness” (low pollution, low noise,...)

„

Vision on Virtual product creation

Complete virtual car/plane

Near-physical product simulation

Realistic simulation in any situation with complete environment

Customer “designs” the product

Intelligent product model

(6)

ViP-RoaM

Goals / deliverables

ƒ

Strategic roadmap sketching the technical and organisational

milestones for Virtual Product Creation for the next 5-10 years

ƒ

Identification of European and global key players in Virtual

Product Creation

ƒ

State-of-the-art analysis (including landscape of international

organisations, standardisation bodies, consortia, projects,

initiatives, … with respect to Virtual Product Creation)

ƒ

Business implementation paths and integration scenarios

ƒ

Management best practices (lessons learned from iViP, other

projects)

(7)

ViP-RoaM

Areas of investigation

1.

Process integration, Technology deployment

ƒ

Process modeling/ simulation

ƒ

Transition from legacy to new technology

2.

Technological Infrastructure, Standardization

ƒ

Basic SW to support communication, collaboration, data mgmt.

ƒ

Evaluation of existing and upcoming standards (data+interface)

3.

Innovative Applications

ƒ

Identification of new functionality

The ViP-RoaM approach

„

Core team

Identify & summarize existing material

define & implement the roadmapping process (method, experts, moderate

sessions etc.)

generate input for workshops and document results

„

Conduct 3 Workshops with external experts

„

Iterations

identify relevant topics and maybe invite additional experts

experts have time to discuss topics offline inside their company/institute

chance to review and improve temporary results

„

Additional Questionnaire

involve more people

Results:

„

Ca. 60 Participants,

„

EC vision,

„

Automotive vision,

„

Aerospace vision,

„

splitting the auditorium in three

sessions:

beyond DMU,

Digital Master,

Networked Enterprise

„

group-based development of three

visions in every session,

„

3 merged visions,

„

dozens of identified gaps between

today's possibilities and visions,

„

hundreds of problems today,

Content of the 3 parallel sessions

The ViP-RoaM thematic areas (Process, Infrastructure,

Applications) were discussed on the basis of 3 scenarios:

„

Session1:

A digital master as a central element in the integrated design model

of the PLM process (chaired by SIEMENS)

„

Session 2:

Beyond geometrical DMU (chaired by Centro Ricerche FIAT)

„

Session 3:

Digital Master Vision

A

Digital Master

is the collection of models and

processes for the digital representation of product

lifecycles

.

Requirements:

„

Distributed, collaborative

„

Reproducibility

„

Openness

„

Global

„

Flexible

„

Managing risk

„

Human oriented

„

Traceability

„

Scalable

Beyond geometric DMU - ViP in 2020

Stylist, designer, process-planner etc. work in the same environment

which adapts to the context for

-

comprehensive model (flexible, holistic, project oriented)

-

consistent version management,

-

multi-level granularity in different product representations

-

real-time collaboration,

-

support & document different alternatives, selection of the best and

automatic generation of different product representaion and

-

multi-user, multi-site.

The core data model allows the context and view specific access to data

an allows the implementation of new technologies and methodologies.
