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.

Możliwości rozwiązania

Product Requirements Engineering

The value of requirements isn't in capturing them, but in driving the product development process. Teamcenter allocates requirements to various downstream functions/features/product architectures -- all while generating the reports, documentation, and dashboards to manage the requirements process. You can create, view and edit requirements directly from familiar Microsoft Office applications, including Microsoft Word and Excel. Lifecycle Integrated requirements enables "start integrated, stay integrated" development process across the entire product lifecycle.

Wizualizacja, cyfrowy model i rzeczywistość wirtualna

Funkcje cyfrowego modelu oraz wizualizacji w Teamcenter pozwalają wszystkim osobom zaangażowanym w cykl życia produktu uzyskać dostęp do danych projektowych 2D i 3D w celu podjęcia świadomych decyzji. Oprogramowanie Teamcenter tworzy wirtualne prototypy na podstawie wielu różnych formatów plików MCAD. Można je wykorzystać zamiast tworzenia kosztownych prototypów fizycznych i na ich podstawie wykonywać specjalistyczne analizy, np. badania ergonomii oraz planowanie ścieżek robotów. Funkcje oceny projektów w rzeczywistości wirtualnej (VR) pozwalają zagłębić się w wirtualnym świecie cyfrowego bliźniaka produktu.

Zarządzanie listą materiałową BOM

Nasze rozwiązanie pomoże Ci lepiej poznać swój produkt, dostarczając wspólne źródło danych BOM dla całej organizacji. Bez względu na to, czy chcesz zarządzać listą BOM w podstawowym zakresie, czy potrzebujesz bardziej zaawansowanych funkcji zarządzania i konfiguracji, które zapewniają większą elastyczność i skalowalność, możesz sprostać wymaganiom rynku, a nawet je przewyższyć dzięki bardziej innowacyjnym i różnorodnym produktom.

Zarządzanie projektami mechanicznymi

Oprogramowanie Teamcenter łączy wszystkie dane dotyczące projektowania mechanicznego wspomaganego komputerowo (MCAD) w jednym środowisku zarządzania danymi produktu (PDM), aby poprawić wydajność inżynierii. Niezależnie od tego, czy Twoja firma korzysta z jednego czy kilku narzędzi MCAD, możesz z łatwością odnajdywać stworzone w innych systemach części i złożenia w wybranym środowisku, a następnie je modyfikować i włączać do złożeń multi-CAD lub projektów produktów. Możesz zautomatyzować procesy wprowadzania zmian inżynierskich, walidacji i zatwierdzania, aby skrócić czas trwania cyklu i poprawić jakość produktu.

Zarządzanie zmianą i przepływy informacji

Dzięki oprogramowaniu Teamcenter możesz zmniejszyć nakłady pracy i koszty związane z zarządzaniem i śledzeniem dowolnego procesu PLM. Zarządzając zmianami w różnych dziedzinach, prowadząc proste oceny projektów, a nawet koordynując odpowiedź na problemy z jakością, możesz zagwarantować, że pracownicy zajmą się odpowiednimi zadaniami, skorzystają z poprawnych danych i podejmą właściwe decyzje w dobrym czasie. Wprowadzając zmiany, możesz zapewnić, że wszystkie zaangażowane strony dokładnie rozumieją modyfikację oraz jej wpływ.
