ONTOGENY AND TRANSFORMATION OF PRODUCT MODELS – ANALYSIS BASED ON DEVELOPMENT PROJECT DOCUMENTATION
The synchronization of activities still comprises a major difficulty for the management of simultaneous engineering processes. Aiming at intensifying the consideration of product-related cycles in process planning, the temporal dynamic behavior of product models (PM) is being addressed in this paper. An analysis of established process models reveals the deficiency of dynamic aspects of the representation of PM. A development project has been conducted serving as data basis for the currently ongoing analysis of the used PM. The potentials of this analysis are outlined by initial results.
