BUSINESS CASE


PLM has the capability to enable significant improvement to a companys business throughout all stages of a product from concept to retirement. Benefits from this influential technology are often stated in reduced time to market, lower development, build and operating costs, and a superior quality that collectively provides high competition. Although these output goals are essential, the real value of PLM is the improvements that it brings in supporting the achievement of these so called outputs. The list opposite highlights a number of areas where PLM can enable improvement in the way a company operates. Collectively, the individual improvements can add up to better time to market, less cost and better overall quality. Having many years experience focusing on this challenge across different companies, Prismar offers a study for its customers that will provide the following:

  • Assessment of the main company processes which PLM will be impacted by the introduction of PLM.
  • Identify potential opportunities for improvement
  • Project how much improvement can be gained by using PLM
  • Define a priority ranking of opportunity value versus time to implement.

POTENTIAL WEAKNESSES

  • Product defects in the field
  • Percentage of reused design
  • Time to find existing design data
  • Amount of internal defects or rework
  • Control over multiple ECOs
  • Making sure everyone affected knows the state of ECOs
  • Late information to Purchasing on long lead items
  • Poor visibility of the design state at a phase gate reviews
  • Phase re-work
  • Difficulty in knowing where used when a change is to be made
  • Not knowing the full impact on other parts of the BOM when making a change
  • Taking too long to find out the state of the design programme
  • Poor visibility of progress across multiple design sites Improvement actions
  • Not knowing which improvement actions will make the biggest positive impact
  • Unclear about which improvement actions can be done early

REVERSE ENGINEERING

During the development and design process, your team may need the specifications from an existing part or a product. Reverse engineering makes this possible – extracting data and design information from an object or product with the intent of reproducing itin a new design. Not only does this process allow for a quick reconstruction of a product for which you may not have the original design files.

SERVICES WE PROVIDE

Prismar follows a three step process:

  • You provide the physical components or parts for our team’s review
  • We perform a laser scan of the component and extract cloud point data to our systems
  • Using this data, our team generates a 2D or 3D CAD model for use in product enhancement. This may include failure analysis, reproduction, general study, inspection, or application for a new product or design

Alternatively, the customer may use a local company to perform the laser scan and sends the results to Prismar to carry out step 3 for you.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS

WE WORK WITH THE FOLLOWING SOFTWARE

For laser scanning, we use:

  1. FARO® Laser ScanArm V2 with 7-axis ScanArm. Scanning ability of up to 19,200 points per second and accuracy of up to .002″ (50μm)
  2. Renishaw® Cyclone scanner with accuracy of up to 50 microns
  3. Software: RapidForm® and Geomagic®, with NURBS and IGES / STEP (ISO 10303) compatibility
  4. Ability to automatically align point cloud data created through multiple scans, removal of stray data points, and removal of redundant data
  5. Ability to scan Class A surfaces
