Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Advanced computer aided design (PPU080), Computer aided industrial design (CAID) (PPU010) or similar

Aim

The purpose of the course of is to provide an overview of how IT tools are used to create and manage products throughout their lifecycles, from identification of customers need to product retirement. In particular, the course focuses on the advanced use of CAD and PDM systems to rationalize the product development process.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

¿ Describe the state-of-the art and important trends in the area of IT support for product realization
¿ Evaluate company-specific needs for and design potential IT support solutions for the company¿s product lifecycle management processes
¿ Describe fundamental mathematical and computer science methods used in modern PLM systems
¿ Describe the functionality of CAD, CAM, CAPP, PDM and knowledge-based engineering (KBE) systems
¿ Create parameterized, rule-based solid models of parts and assemblies
¿ Use CAD, PDM and KBE systems as tools in an integrated product development process
¿ Adapt CAD, PDM and KBE systems to solve a specific task in cooperation with other enterprise IT systems
¿ Use methods for information and process modelling as tools when developing adapted PLM solutions
¿ Plan the development and implementation of a PLM solution

Content

¿ Industrial needs for IT support for product realization
¿ Functionalities of state-of-the-art CAD, CAM, CAPP, PDM systems
¿ Information modeling using UML and STEP
¿ Product data management
¿ Process modeling (Use cases, IDEF0, DSM)
¿ Software engineering
¿ Product structures
¿ Knowledge engineering, specifically parametric and rule-based geometry modeling
¿ PLM strategy, trends and implementation

Organisation

The course is organized around a series of lectures and a project work.

Literature

SmartTeam Use and Administration - Learn How to Use and Customize SmarTeam Database and Functionalities, Wingquist Laboratory, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, 2010.

Examination

For completion of the course the students must have at least a ¿passed¿ grade on two ¿duggor¿ (short written exams), on the project work and attended the compulsory guest lectures. The final grade depends on the results from both the duggor (30 %) and from the project work (70 %).
