Compliant Equipment Design

Compliant equipment harvesting

Today’s equipment design is always under time pressure because of the continuously growing product complexity and the increasing demand for customization. Besides, globalization adds more challenges, such as working in distributed teams, with all sorts of suppliers, and being confronted with numerous local regulations that become increasingly stringent. It’s important for heavy equipment manufacturers to stay focused on what ultimately matters most: delivering compliant equipment of consistently high quality that exceeds the industry standard anywhere, every time.

Siemens helps heavy equipment manufacturers build a solid reputation in the market by providing them with all the components they need to achieve compliant equipment design excellence. By deploying those solutions, manufacturers can make sure that throughout the entire process, all stakeholders in equipment design stay continuously focused on the requirements. They can take a systematic approach to verification management, based on a common environment where all data is stored and kept up to date. And they preserve, at any time, a clear view of deliverables, status, risks, and opportunities, and traceability of all decisions across the program.

Manage requirements and confidently achieve compliant equipment

Today is all about emissions. But compliant equipment design is also about aspects like safety, ergonomics, noise, vibrations and more. Unfortunately, around the world, many local variants of regulations apply. For globally operating OEMs, managing those so that their product groups understand and implement them correctly, is challenging. To simplify the problem, it is important that they see the similarities and differences across regions, so that they can translate all regulations into a set that is more concise and easier to work with. This can help, for example, to set up processes for automated design to regulatory requirements. Still, keeping all stakeholders focused on the requirements must be a continuous effort to achieve compliant equipment design. Proper requirement management means they must be captured, shared, and maintained in an integrated repository that participates in standard product lifecycle management services. They must be linked to tasks and resources to drive priorities, for continuous verification and validation, and to study the impact and the risk of change.

Exceed industry standards for compliant equipment by following a systematic verification management approach

Industry standards provide a framework for a common understanding of what appropriate quality or good practice is. To strengthen their reputation and protect their brand, OEMs must adhere to all the methods, processes, requirements, and specifications defined in those standards, and must also be able to proof this. Being a global industrial player as well as a user of the technologies we sell, at Siemens we have embedded vast knowledge of standards and regulations as built-in features in our solutions. With Siemens solutions, OEMs can conduct, for example, ergonomics analysis, visibility studies, and many more during compliant equipment design. Still, it requires a continuous effort to verify if the equipment meets the prescribed standards. Therefore, it is also necessary to deploy a systematic approach to verification and validation, one where all stakeholders can access the same, common up-to-date data set, where they can communicate instantly on information like data, requirements, and status, and where the impact of all decisions can be tracked throughout the entire compliant equipment design cycle.

Be accountable and transparent and provide proof of delivering compliant equipment

The relationship between OEMs and their customers often strongly relies on trust. And with emerging technologies such as autonomous and connected capabilities, this will become even more important as an increasing number of responsibilities will come to the OEMs. In this context, it is crucial for them to be transparent. They must keep track of requirements throughout the lifecycle and document all decisions that are being taken along the way, including changes. They must follow such a systematic and traceable approach to program management so that they are able to provide proof points of good practice for compliant equipment design in case there is a litigation. In fact, it will benefit all stakeholders if program managers, team leaders and designers are connected via a common platform where they share up-to-date information. With execution and planning tied together, everyone has immediate access to what they need for their job. This fosters efficiency, provides a clear view of deliverables, status, risks, and opportunities, and allows traceability of decisions across the program.

Fonctionnalités de la solution

Bill of Materials Management

Teamcenter vous aide à connaître parfaitement votre produit, en fournissant à toute votre organisation une source commune d’informations de nomenclature. Que vous ayez besoin d’une gestion de nomenclatures basique, ou d’une gestion et d’une configuration de nomenclatures plus avancée, flexible et évolutive, vous pouvez répondre aux exigences du marché, voire les dépasser, en proposant des produits plus innovants et plus variés.

Change Management & Workflow

Teamcenter vous permet de réduire les coûts et le travail manuel liés à la gestion et au suivi des processus de gestion du cycle de vie des produits (PLM). De la gestion des modifications dans toutes les disciplines à l’exécution d’une simple révision de conception ou à la coordination d’une réponse à des problèmes de qualité, vous pouvez concentrer les efforts de votre personnel sur les bonnes tâches, en lui fournissant les bonnes données, afin que les bonnes décisions soient prises au bon moment. Lors de l’exécution de modifications, vous pouvez garantir que toutes les parties prenantes comprennent exactement ce qui est modifié et dans quelle mesure elles sont affectées.

Mechanical Design Management

Teamcenter regroupe toutes vos données de conception mécanique assistée par ordinateur (CAOM) dans un environnement de gestion des données produit (PDM) unique pour améliorer la productivité de votre service d’ingénierie. Que votre entreprise utilise un ou plusieurs outils de CAOM, vous pouvez facilement trouver des pièces et des assemblages créés dans d’autres outils dans votre environnement de CAOM favori, puis les modifier et les incorporer dans des assemblages ou des conceptions de produits multi-CAO. Vous pouvez automatiser les processus de modification d’ingénierie, de validation et d’approbation pour réduire la durée des cycles et améliorer la qualité de vos produits.

Product Requirements Engineering

Ce n’est pas la capture des exigences qui fait leur valeur, mais leur rôle dans le processus de développement des produits. Teamcenter® affecte les exigences à différentes fonctions, fonctionnalités et architectures de produits en aval. Parallèlement, il génère des rapports, de la documentation et des tableaux de bord pour permettre de gérer le processus associé aux exigences. Vous pouvez créer, afficher et modifier les exigences directement à partir de vos applications Microsoft Office familières, notamment Microsoft Word et Excel. L’intégration des exigences dans le cycle de vie permet d’utiliser un processus de développement « intégré de bout en bout » pendant tout le cycle de vie des produits.

Visualization, Digital Mockup & Virtual Reality

Les fonctionnalités de maquettage numérique et de visualisation de Teamcenter permettent à tous les intervenants du cycle de vie d’accéder aux produits et de collaborer à leur réalisation en utilisant des données de conception 2D ou 3D. Vous pouvez ainsi prendre en toute connaissance de cause des décisions relatives au produit. À partir de formats de conception mécanique assistée par ordinateur (CAOM) multiples, Teamcenter crée des prototypes virtuels que vous pouvez utiliser – au lieu de fabriquer des prototypes physiques onéreux – pour réaliser des études plus spécialisées ; par exemple, dans les domaines de l’ergonomie et de la planification des chemins. La vérification des conceptions en réalité virtuelle (RV) vous permet de vous immerger dans le monde virtuel du jumeau numérique du produit.
