Abstract

Product development of complex products and their corresponding production systems continue to provide challenges in industry as well as interesting and challenging research questions. Recent research in the area has provided an integrated product and production system modeling framework supporting cross-functional collaboration and concurrency. An industrial challenge of ensuring complete sets of parts for manufacturing of different product variants is examined. The work includes a framing of the concepts of completeness, consistency, and compatibility. Based on this framing a case study is conducted exploring the possibilities and implications involved in using the modeling framework to include supporting functionality.

Keywords: SYSTEMS THEORY; PRODUCT MODEL; PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
