Building A Catalog Of Power Copies S2010

  1. 1. Building a Catalog of Power Copies Ray Anderson – Airbus Americas
  2. 2. Agenda <ul><li>Please turn off cell phone ringers </li></ul><ul><li>Define ‘Power Copy’ </li></ul><ul><li>Creation of Geometry – Do’s and Don’ts </li></ul><ul><li>Creation of Power Copy </li></ul><ul><li>Define ‘Catalog’ </li></ul><ul><li>Creation of Catalog </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of Catalog </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of Power Copy </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of Help Doc’s </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation of Knowledge Management </li></ul><ul><li>Maintenance </li></ul>
  3. 3. Define ‘Power Copy’ <ul><li>A Power Copy is geometry that is defined in such a way that it can be pasted into another file while simultaneously replacing some of it’s base level geometry with new geometry in the recipient file. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Simple example </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Create a sketch in a recipient file </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Paste a Pad, replacing it’s original rectangular sketch with the recipient circular sketch </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Results in a new pad profile </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Creation of Geometry <ul><li>DO </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Isolate all Input geometry (positional independence) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relate all implemented geometry (logical dependency) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relate all implemented parameters (parametric dependency) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relate all implemented rules/reactions/checks (cleanliness) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Set up Subject Matter Experts to own Knowledge (maintenance) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use Catalogs (simplifies User access and maintenance) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Map your Use Case(s) and match Inputs (eases instantiation) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DON’T </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Implement geometry related to Global Axis (locks location) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Implement Global Axis (locks instance location) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Depend on CAD to host all geometric knowledge (lacks verbosity) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Duplicate similar Power Copies (induces repetitive revisions) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Expect your KBE Group to be the Domain Experts (Enlist SME’s) </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Creation of Power Copy <ul><li>Use a single file to host multiple versions </li></ul><ul><li>Name Power Copies Descriptively </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Y-Bar – Widely understood in Stringer Design Process </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Name Inputs Descriptively </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Datums, Surfaces, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Name Outputs Descriptively </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For downstream processes </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Organize Input Sequence </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Logical Instantiation Flow </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Define ‘Catalog’ <ul><li>A Catia Catalog is a pseudo-database interface that allows a User or Administrator to define Keyword based collections of geometry. </li></ul>Admin Interface User Interface
  7. 7. Creation of Catalog <ul><li>Chapter </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Design Domain = Wingbox </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sub-Chapter </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Geometry type = Stringer </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Family </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Function = Extrusion, Section, End </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Components </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Geometry = Y-Bar, Y-Bar_Exact, BSTRAP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Geometry = I, T, C, J </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Geometry = Top_Root_Joint… </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Creating a Catalog in Batch (DS Help Doc extraction) <ul><li>V5 Help Search “Creating a Catalog in Batch Mode” </li></ul><ul><li>Create a CSV file </li></ul><ul><li>Create a VBScript </li></ul>Caution: In the Tools+Options+General+Macros Dialogue: If the CclTypeLib library is not in the list click on the Add file... button and retrieve the library from <install path>intel_acodein.
  9. 9. Implementing a Catalog <ul><li>Set Favorites Path </li></ul><ul><li>Secure Contents </li></ul><ul><li>Broadcast Existence </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Email, User Meetings, Intranet </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Broadcast Updates </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Email, User Meetings, Intranet </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Demonstrate Utilization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>User Meetings, Viewlets, VB Help </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Document Structure </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Export to CSV </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Implementing a Power Copy <ul><li>Open the Catalog and CATPart </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Add Chapter </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Add Family </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Add Component </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Select External Feature </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Part and Catalog must be open </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Link From Session to Catalog </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple Versions/One CATPart </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple Use Cases </li></ul><ul><li>Similar Geometries in one file </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Y-Bar </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Y-Bar_Exact </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Implementing Multi-Version PC <ul><li>More than one PC can exist per CATPart </li></ul><ul><li>Add to the Catalog as before </li></ul><ul><li>Advantages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fewer CATParts to manage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Share geometry, logic, parameters, naming, maintenance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less disk space required </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Instant ‘parallel’ updates/revisions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Commonality for User Efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Common Help Doc.
