From concept to components XMTD Business case study
Volvo Cars Body Components is the Competence Center within Volvo Car Corporation for forming and joining of automotive body components in metallic materials as well as analysis and prematching of the complete body-in-white. We are an integrated part of the Volvo Car Corporation processes.
XMTD Mission Scenario
Support the Automotive Process “From Concept to Component Development” with global automated application with eXchange Management of Technical Data mechanisms to decrease business Marginal Cost with focus on

Example of how to calculate potential savings on improvements in XMTD transmission on OEM and Tier 1 level
ESTIMATED Saving cost components ENGDAT V3 SEK Annual Savings: 1 % of Global Supplier Choise Savings 2 184 000 SEK/Year 1 h/transfer Leadtime savings “From Concept to Component” 1 680 000 SEK/Year Changing from 80% of ENGDAT ISDN and 80% of Physical Media to https 900 000 SEK/Year TOTAL: 4 764 000 SEK/Year Changeover (One-time) Costs: Rewriting from ISDN to https ( shared 50% by Volvo Truck) 470 400 SEK TOTAL CHANGEOVER COST: 470 400 SEK
General Conclusion: Most OEM:s and suppliers will save some of the marginal XMTD Cost already the first year by using ENGDAT V3 exchanges with their suppliers Annual Savings: 4 764 000 SEK One-time Changeover Costs: 470 400 SEK Ford requires the payback period to be one year or less. Since 470 400 < 4 764 000 , Ford estimates recover all of its investment in one-time costs in less than one year. Therefore we estimate Ford will agree to finance the conversion of the Volvo Cars User Interface for XMTD from ENGDAT v2 to ENGDAT v3.
Soft Reasons for ENGDAT V3
ENGDAT V3 will provide web-based functionality that improves on ENGDAT V1 / 2 while preserving the data content that the partners expect .
ENGDAT V3 provides the ENGDAT metadata needed by Volvo's XMTD user interface .
Volvo customers today using ENGDAT V1 / 2 will soon require ENGDAT v3 , so Volvo must be able to provide this format .
