  • 2. Introduction Product Lifecycle Management is a key enabler in achieving operational efficiency and plays a pivotal role in achieving economical and fast-to-market solutions. Powertrain Organization partners with Global Supplier base to design, assemble and manufacture products, globally and to delivers to the Ford vehicle teams across the world. Implementation of a PLM solution, which helps grapple with the challenges by managing a multi-CAD, multi-PIM environment, broad-based visualization, regimented workflows and BOM authoring to maximize its collaboration success in a global environment. This presentation shares the insights of Powertrain’s tactical and strategic efforts to support global collaboration. 2 Unraveling Data Sharing Challenges to Improve Collaboration at Global Ford Powertrain

  • 9. Business challenges (Contd.) Powertrain suppliers are located in geographically disparate locations (Europe, India, China) NA * Suppliers are connected to the Tce sites which are in their proximity. For eg. suppliers in Germany are Europe connected to Tce in Merkenich / Cologne depending on their proximity to these sites. New PLM tools seem to be bringing the suppliers closer to the OEMs ….. but need reasonable amount of process changes for seamless data sharing 9 Unraveling Data Sharing Challenges to Improve Collaboration at Global Ford Powertrain

  • 11. Technical Challenges Suppliers located in Europe, China, India are connected to the Tce sites in their proximity Vehicle teams of other brands, needing data from FNA powertrains are connected to Tce sites in their geography. Data that these teams need from other sites need to be imported or replicated at their sites in a timely fashion. Manually importing large assemblies is a tedious task and is also subject to latency issues due to data traffic. Data from suppliers need to be staged Supplier data has to be tessellated Data translation from OOTB NX to Ideas so that it can be shared with the vehicle teams that are using C3PNG. 11 Unraveling Data Sharing Challenges to Improve Collaboration at Global Ford Powertrain
  • 12. Addressing the challenges Main Objective: Return on Assets Approach Productization approach, by standardizing operations on the portfolio of tools available Rearrangement of the configuration of physical assets and processes in the value chain Drivers Maximize value creation and minimize costs increase the utilization of the fixed cost components (PLM systems, hardware) Improve dividends (returns) from the capital already invested in the PLM solution 12 Unraveling Data Sharing Challenges to Improve Collaboration at Global Ford Powertrain
  • 13. Tactical and Strategic measures Tactical measures (Interim) Automated data transfer processes to better utilize the systems (fixed cost components) and minimized manual data pull and push (variable cost components) to improve data flow with suppliers and other CBGs for the interim and also to to be positioned to scale up to cater to the data demands until a strategic solution is launched Strategic measure (for the future) ‘Synergy’ Project 13 Unraveling Data Sharing Challenges to Improve Collaboration at Global Ford Powertrain

  • 25. Benefits to Ford Suppliers 1. Provides local data management solution Unlimited Comprehensive Multi-CAD capable Latest generation 2. Enables asynchronous data transfer work flow enhanced with JT (Data Manager/Release Analyst Role) 3. Provides platform for supplier internal PLM processes and workflows 4. Greatly reduce costs related to bandwidth for OEM connectivity. 25 Unraveling Data Sharing Challenges to Improve Collaboration at Global Ford Powertrain
  • 26. Benefits to Ford 1. No need to upgrade to a new release. 2. Eliminates load on the ETS server to tessellate supplier data 3. Jt reduces the disk space required for supplier data 4. Greatly reduces the time a supplier needs to go from source to productively supporting the program 5. Throughput increase as supplier data no longer needs to be: Staged Translated, Cleaned and Re-validated prior to delivery 6. Decreases the scope/risk involved with each C3PNG upgrade 7. Broadens the supplier market with more entrants in both infrastructure and geography 26 Unraveling Data Sharing Challenges to Improve Collaboration at Global Ford Powertrain
  • 27. Results improved collaboration and increased utilization of the fixed cost components (PLM systems, hardware) and Shortened time needed to collaborate data between suppliers and the powertrain programs shorter setup times to prepare data that has to be shared along the value chain Improved operational efficiency and increased throughput with out the need for huge resource requirements. Utilization of down time by making sure these automated processes are scheduled during low load on the servers (physical assets) Reduced operational complexity from automation of the data transfer (using data sync and data lists) Increased flexibility while lowered costs. Directly affects profits by controlling the cost side of the equation Taken together it shows the management team's decision to improve return by optimizing the logistics and the collaboration processes. 27 Unraveling Data Sharing Challenges to Improve Collaboration at Global Ford Powertrain
