    Where to start
  • 3. Document Versus Item
    Drawings
    Traditional representations of physical items
    Drawing trees = product structure?
    Good framework for 2D drafting
  • 4. Document Versus Item
    Drawings
    Traditional representations of physical items
    Drawing trees = product structure?
    Good framework for 2D drafting
    Items
    Concept introduced with databases and MRP/ERP
    Item = collection of data that describes a physical entity
    Item structure now independent from document structure
  • 5. Document Versus Item
    Documentisthe product record
    vs.
    Documentis part ofthe product record
  • 6. Making the Change
    When changing…
    from Document-centric
    to Item-centric
    What are the Challenges?
    What are the Benefits?
  • 7. Challenges of the Change
    Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:
    Item revision
    Drawing revision
    3D model revision
  • 8. Challenges of the Change
    Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:
    Product structure duplication
    Structure is created during CAD design
    Time is wasted to re-enter it into MRP/ERP as items
  • 9. Challenges of the Change
    Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:
    Product structure duplication
    Giving up control
    Creating/managing structure in 3D CAD means Engineering controls product structure
    Items could be viewed/manipulated by all groups
  • 10. Challenges of the Change
    Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:
    Product structure duplication
    Giving up control
    Possible to create impossible designs
    Items don’t have geometry to check FFF
  • 11. Challenges of Change
    Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:
    Product structure duplication
    Giving up control
    Possible to create impossible designs
    Doc. Cntrl. is easy, Configuration Mgmt. is hard
    CM has a bad name – it is perceived as complex
    Doc. Ctrl. has a bad name – it is perceived as mundane
  • 12. Benefits of the Change
    Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD
  • 13. Benefits of the Change
    Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD
    Don’t interrupt business processes to correct spelling errors on drawings and documents
  • 14. Benefits of the Change
    Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD
    Don’t interrupt business processes to correct spelling errors on drawings and documents
    Stop worrying about revision/PN bubble-up in CAD
  • 15. Benefits of the Change
    Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD
    Don’t interrupt business processes to correct spelling errors on drawings and documents
    Stop worrying about revision/PN bubble-up in CAD
    Communicate across disciplines (electrical/mechanical) early in the design process
  • 16. Benefits of the Change
    Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD
    Don’t interrupt business processes to correct spelling errors on drawings and documents
    Stop worrying about revision/PN bubble-up in CAD
    Communicate across disciplines (electrical/mechanical) early in the design process
    Collaborate with partners without CAD interoperability worries
  • 17. Benefits of the Change
    Quit “classifying” everything during the design phase
  • 18. Benefits of the Change
    Quit “classifying” everything during the design phase
    Take down the fences between CAD, PDM, and ERP and let everyone share data
  • 19. Benefits of the Change
    Quit “classifying” everything during the design phase
    Take down the fences between CAD, PDM, and ERP and let everyone share data
    Add BOM components that don’t have geometry – and feel good about it
  • 20. Benefits of the Change
    Quit “classifying” everything during the design phase
    Take down the fences between CAD, PDM, and ERP and let everyone share data
    Add BOM components that don’t have geometry – and feel good about it
    Stop confusing a document’s status with an item’s maturity (and free yourself from a 20 person drawing release process)
  • 21. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge
    Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity
  • 22. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge
    Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity
    CM got a bad name in the Defense industry
  • 23. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge
    Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity
    CM got a bad name in the Defense industry
    Going from Documents to Items is a big change
  • 24. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge
    Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity
    CM got a bad name in the Defense industry
    Going from Documents to Items is a big change
    Culture change will always hurt
  • 25. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge
    Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity
    CM got a bad name in the Defense industry
    Going from Documents to Items is a big change
    Culture change will always hurt
    Follow the leaders:
    CMII
    EIA-649
    MIL-STD-973A
  • 26. Scenario Preview
    Time
    Items
    Documents
  • 27. Scenario
    Engineer with a new idea creates a 3D model
    Item created as “temporary” while the concept is reviewed
  • 28. Scenario
    Specifying drawing created
    Item set as “pending” and given part number
  • 29. Scenario
    Specifying drawing approved
    Pending item promoted to state “released”
  • 30. Scenario
    Problems found during tooling development
    New revision needed for item
    Item rev A made “inactive”
    Old drawing made obsolete
    New 3D and 2D prepared
  • 31. Scenario
    Specifying drawing reviewed and approved
    Item rev B promoted from “pending” to “released”
  • 32. Scenario
    Tooling completed
    Item rev B promoted from “released” to “active”
    Production begins
  • 33. Scenario
    Item redesign initiated for cost savings program
    New revision needed (rev C)
    New 3D and 2D prepared
  • 34. Scenario
    New 2D drawing approved
    Item rev C promoted from “pending” directly to “active”
    2 revisions of the item in production at one time
  • 35. Scenario
    Item rev B demoted to “released” after inventory depleted
