Conception intégrée et gestion d'informations techniques: application à l'ingénierie du produit et de sa séquence d'assemblage

Abstract : In today's competitive market, companies from the automotive and aeronautic industries are required to effectively enable concurrent engineering (CE) and product lifecycle management (PLM) strategies in order to maintain their business drivers and competitiveness edges - such as productivity, efficiency, and flexibility - especially at the beginning of product lifecycle process. Within this context, a particular industrial requirement is needed for the integration of lifecycle considerations at different life aspects from the early product development process with the related support of data-information-knowledge management systems. It is therefore important to provide a decision making support as soon as possible, in order to produce a better, assembly friendly, product. This research is in the fields of integrated design and information management with a particular focus on product structure engineering and assembly sequence planning. The latter has been developed by setting up a multi-view model entitled MUlti-View Assembly Oriented (MUVOA) to map concepts in the area of product and assembly process for the definition, the propagation, and the traceability of product and process information along the product life cycle. A set of interrelated views (functional, behavioral, structural, geometric, technological and contextual) has been defined according to profiles (role, concern, concepts, business process, etc.) of the stakeholders involved in assembly oriented design issues, namely the product architect, the assembly planner, the designer and the process expert. Based on the MUVOA model, a framework called Proactive ASsembly Oriented DEsign (PASODE) has been proposed in order to define an optimal assembly sequence in the early product development process, and used to define a skeleton-based assembly context in product geometric view. Thus, the proposed PASODE framework includes three approaches, which are: the approach based on the ASDA algorithm (Assembly Sequence Definition Algorithm), dedicated to the definition/planning of assembly sequences in the preliminary product development process; the SKL-ACD approach (SKeLeton-based Assembly Context Definition), dedicated to the definition of a skeleton-based assembly context; and the PRM approach (Product Relationships Management), for the management of product relationships at various abstraction levels in the context of PLM. The proposed MUVOA model and PASODE framework have been implemented in a new application called PEGASUS at the interface of PLM systems such as PDM (Product Data Management), MPM (Manufacturing Process Management) and CAD (Computer Aided Design) systems. The computer implementation is based on the Model View – ViewModel method and C# programming language that enables us to achieve three industrial applications to demonstrate the three proposed approaches. Among the use cases, we have introduced a case study of a Catalytic converters and Diesel Particulate Filter in collaboration with Faurecia ECT from automotive industry, the design of fuselage section of an aircraft in collaboration with EADS IW from aeronautic industry, and the design of a pneumatic drill for the enterprise MABI.
