The reduction of the overall manufacturing costs and time-to-market is one of the biggest strategic goals for many companies. Both factors (time and costs) are incurred during the production but mainly determined during the design phase.
At the example of bimetallic corrosion the information exchange along the Product Development Process (PDP) is shown. Therefore this paper presents a concept and a prototype for detecting bimetallic corrosion in a CAD-System and describes a general way for storing information in a neutral data format, e.g. in a PDM/PLM-System. Thus the data could be used not only by designers but also by other departments, e.g. process planning.
Thereby this concept generates (nearly) no overhead for the involved departments. Though it still offers a real value added by presenting the information in a prepared and consumable way. This way the approach can scale down the “wall” still existing between product development and process planning.
