|Title: ||Design and implementation of a PLM system for Chalmers Formula Student|
|Authors: ||Karlsson, Rikard|
|Abstract: ||Complex products typically consist of many different parts which need to interact nd function
together. In the modern world, the development and verification of arts, sub-assemblies
and entire products are done to a large extent with the help f computers. This in turn generates
a lot of digital documentation and information which needs to be stored and controlled throughout
the life cycle of a product. In rder to keep track of the information, a Product Lifecycle
Management, or PLM, system can be used.
The study which has been carried out has investigated the current digital documen- ation structure
of Chalmers Formula Student, CFS, with the aim of identifying possible areas of
improvement and whether the implementation of a specific PLM system could be beneficial for
their continued development efforts. Information bout PLM and the aspects related to
it has been gathered through a literature eview and served as a basis for the study.
Information about the current doc- mentation structure was gathered through interviews
with current and previous embers of the CFS team. In an effort to extend the number of
viewpoints of PLM,
n additional round of interviews were held with professors and engineers with var- ous experience
with PLM system.
Based on the theoretical framework and the held interviews, it became apparent hat
there were potential improvements to be made mainly regarding the aspects f knowledge
transfer and finding needed documentation concerning changes made uring the development efforts.
The main underlying reasoning was mentioned s lack of time to document properly,
last minute changes made without proper pdating and a difficulty of navigating the folder
structure. The investigation and evaluation of the benefits of a PLM system resulted in the
suggestion of a gradual mplementation, starting with the PLM system being used to manage
ided Design, CAD, files.|
