Moving from Document Management to BOM Management

  1. 1. Moving fromDocument Management toBOM Management<br />2009-05-08<br />Jonathan Scott<br />Principal Consultant, Razorleaf<br />
  2. 2. Agenda<br />Document versus item<br />Challenges of change<br />Benefits of change<br />Scenario<br />Avoiding the bleeding edge<br />ENOVIA SmarTeam Tools<br />Where to start<br />
  3. 3. Document Versus Item<br />Drawings<br />Traditional representations of physical items<br />Drawing trees = product structure?<br />Good framework for 2D drafting<br />
  4. 4. Document Versus Item<br />Drawings<br />Traditional representations of physical items<br />Drawing trees = product structure?<br />Good framework for 2D drafting<br />Items<br />Concept introduced with databases and MRP/ERP<br />Item = collection of data that describes a physical entity<br />Item structure now independent from document structure<br />
  5. 5. Document Versus Item<br />Documentisthe product record<br />vs.<br />Documentis part ofthe product record<br />
  6. 6. Making the Change<br />When changing…<br />from Document-centric<br />to Item-centric<br />What are the Challenges?<br />What are the Benefits?<br />
  7. 7. Challenges of the Change<br />Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:<br />Item revision<br />Drawing revision<br />3D model revision<br />
  8. 8. Challenges of the Change<br />Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:<br />Product structure duplication<br />Structure is created during CAD design<br />Time is wasted to re-enter it into MRP/ERP as items<br />
  9. 9. Challenges of the Change<br />Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:<br />Product structure duplication<br />Giving up control<br />Creating/managing structure in 3D CAD means Engineering controls product structure<br />Items could be viewed/manipulated by all groups<br />
  10. 10. Challenges of the Change<br />Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:<br />Product structure duplication<br />Giving up control<br />Possible to create impossible designs<br />Items don’t have geometry to check FFF<br />
  11. 11. Challenges of Change<br />Keeping 2 (maybe 3+) revisions per physical part:<br />Product structure duplication<br />Giving up control<br />Possible to create impossible designs<br />Doc. Cntrl. is easy, Configuration Mgmt. is hard<br />CM has a bad name – it is perceived as complex<br />Doc. Ctrl. has a bad name – it is perceived as mundane<br />
  12. 12. Benefits of the Change<br />Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD<br />
  13. 13. Benefits of the Change<br />Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD<br />Don’t interrupt business processes to correct spelling errors on drawings and documents<br />
  14. 14. Benefits of the Change<br />Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD<br />Don’t interrupt business processes to correct spelling errors on drawings and documents<br />Stop worrying about revision/PN bubble-up in CAD<br />
  15. 15. Benefits of the Change<br />Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD<br />Don’t interrupt business processes to correct spelling errors on drawings and documents<br />Stop worrying about revision/PN bubble-up in CAD<br />Communicate across disciplines (electrical/mechanical) early in the design process<br />
  16. 16. Benefits of the Change<br />Stop modeling EVERYTHING in CAD<br />Don’t interrupt business processes to correct spelling errors on drawings and documents<br />Stop worrying about revision/PN bubble-up in CAD<br />Communicate across disciplines (electrical/mechanical) early in the design process<br />Collaborate with partners without CAD interoperability worries<br />
  17. 17. Benefits of the Change<br />Quit “classifying” everything during the design phase<br />
  18. 18. Benefits of the Change<br />Quit “classifying” everything during the design phase<br />Take down the fences between CAD, PDM, and ERP and let everyone share data<br />
  19. 19. Benefits of the Change<br />Quit “classifying” everything during the design phase<br />Take down the fences between CAD, PDM, and ERP and let everyone share data<br />Add BOM components that don’t have geometry – and feel good about it<br />
  20. 20. Benefits of the Change<br />Quit “classifying” everything during the design phase<br />Take down the fences between CAD, PDM, and ERP and let everyone share data<br />Add BOM components that don’t have geometry – and feel good about it<br />Stop confusing a document’s status with an item’s maturity (and free yourself from a 20 person drawing release process)<br />
  21. 21. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge<br />Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity<br />
  22. 22. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge<br />Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity<br />CM got a bad name in the Defense industry<br />
  23. 23. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge<br />Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity<br />CM got a bad name in the Defense industry<br />Going from Documents to Items is a big change<br />
  24. 24. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge<br />Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity<br />CM got a bad name in the Defense industry<br />Going from Documents to Items is a big change<br />Culture change will always hurt<br />
  25. 25. Avoiding the Bleeding Edge<br />Good Configuration Management is the heart of item-centricity<br />CM got a bad name in the Defense industry<br />Going from Documents to Items is a big change<br />Culture change will always hurt<br />Follow the leaders:<br />CMII<br />EIA-649<br />MIL-STD-973A<br />

  28. 28. Scenario<br />Specifying drawing created<br />Item set as “pending” and given part number<br />
  29. 29. Scenario<br />Specifying drawing approved<br />Pending item promoted to state “released”<br />
  30. 30. Scenario<br />Problems found during tooling development<br />New revision needed for item<br />Item rev A made “inactive”<br />Old drawing made obsolete<br />New 3D and 2D prepared<br />
  31. 31. Scenario<br />Specifying drawing reviewed and approved<br />Item rev B promoted from “pending” to “released”<br />
  32. 32. Scenario<br />Tooling completed<br />Item rev B promoted from “released” to “active”<br />Production begins<br />
  33. 33. Scenario<br />Item redesign initiated for cost savings program<br />New revision needed (rev C)<br />New 3D and 2D prepared<br />
  34. 34. Scenario<br />New 2D drawing approved<br />Item rev C promoted from “pending” directly to “active”<br />2 revisions of the item in production at one time<br />
  35. 35. Scenario<br />Item rev B demoted to “released” after inventory depleted<br />
