Product Lifecycle Interoperability

Three Key Ingredients For Cross-PDM Interoperability

Business Process Management (BPM), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), and PDM/PLM
information standards are now at a point where cross PDM interoperability is a
viable option. How these can come together in a symbiotic way to foster
heterogeneous PDM interoperability solutions will be presented. Concept definition,
how they connect together from a logical systems architecture perspective, benefits,
and risks associated with implementing Cross-PDM Interoperability will be discussed.
Fredrick Bsharah, Ford Motor Company

Simple, Automated and Controlled Engineering Data Exchange for Buyers

To automate CAD, data processing and communication to and from suppliers, Bentley
Motors and Red Bull Racing have deployed new translation software. This case study
will reference the situation prior to deployment, the target, and current "as is"
situation post deployment. ROI calculations and benefits achieved by Bentley, Red
Bull Racing and their suppliers will be discussed.
Martyn Davies, Autoweb

An Appeal for Non-Proprietary Interface Standards for Design to Process Planning

Widely implemented non-proprietary interface standards (NPIS) could eliminate
incompatibilities between CAD and manufacturing process planning (PP). Efforts
required from users and suppliers for successful NPIS will be discussed including a
report on progress defining NPIS for CAD to PP for inspection process and planning
as well as several organizations working on them.
John Horst, NIST

Collaboration Management

Geometry is Easier to Comprehend than Language

CAD geometry data is neither as nuanced nor ambiguous as human language since it is
a mathematical expression to begin with. By way of comparison, current artificial
intelligence algorithms interpret human language at about 40% of human
effectiveness. This presentation discusses the feasibility of applying AI techniques
to "smartify" dumb geometry.
Steven Thomas, Boeing

Realizing Cost Savings with STEP-Based Data Exchange for the Humvee

Results from a pilot project conducted by the US Army to validate and demonstrate
the use of STEP standards for PDM interoperability will be presented. Conducted on
the Army's Humvee vehicle with AM General Corporation, the pilot showed that product
structures, metadata and associated content files such as Unigraphics 3D models can
be exchanged between Teamcenter Engineering and Windchill PDMLink. The problem
statement, solution requirements, implementation approach, results and conclusions
as well as potential cost savings will be discussed.
Raj Iyer, US Army Tank Automotive R&D Center

Solving the IP Paradox: How to Enable Global Business without Jeopardizing IP

As the circles of product design partners widen, global business requires more
frequent, more detailed communication about products. Protecting the design know-how
and securing the competitive edge is one of the top business directives. Therefore,
there is a growing need to build a process for managing, controlling and revealing
enough product intelligence that allows streamline design and manufacturing process,
while making sure IP is not jeopardized. Defining the strategy and technological
solution to achieve the fine balance will be discussed.

Panel: Light-Weight 3D Formats - Ask The Vendors

Moderator: David Prawel, Longview Advisors
The new generation of light-weight 3D file formats is upon us - Acrobat 3D, DWF, JT,
3D XML, XVL - and they're poised to add real value in supply chain and downstream
interoperability and collaboration. This panel is a rare opportunity to participate
in an interactive discussion with the vendors of these important formats. The
moderator will ask a few initial questions, and then the panelists will take
questions from the audience. This is your chance to ask the tough questions, and
take major steps in working out your interoperability and collaboration strategies.
