Knowledge enabled engineering: applied to car body design [Elektronisk resurs]
2006 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

To stay competitive in a global market companies push to make their product development process more efficient with respect to added customer value, shorter time to market, efficient knowledge and technology transfer. To achieve this they depend on the choice of work procedures, suitable processes, methods, available knowledge and experiences, CAE tools and appropriate competence to manage the mentioned for concept creation and concept realization.This licentiate thesis presents a new method how to capture, store and reuse information and knowledge. It also includes discussions about which new technologies that are needed for Functional Product Development and a demonstrator that shows how downstream knowledge can be captured and realized in a computer application ready to use for designers in the early phases of the product development process. Focus for the method and demonstrator lies in the conceptual phase, since designers have most or best opportunities to change the design in this early phase. A change of the design later in the project will become more expensive and difficult and it might even be impossible to compensate or correct the shortcomings of a poor design concept.The new method and demonstrator are results of case studies made at Volvo Cars Corporation in Gothenburg, discussions and work shops together with the ProViking partner companies Volvo Cars Corporation, Volvo Aero, Sandvik Coromant and Hägglunds Drives.

Abstract [en]

With an increasing number of and also more complex demands on today’s automobiles the need for fast and accurate simulations to support the Engineering Design (ED) process is getting more important. The demands that are put on the automotive designs are often contradictory i.e. weight against stiffness, and no one optimal set of solutions can be found, rather a trade-off situation. At Volvo Cars Corporation, known all over the world for their safety policy, the advancement to more high strength materials is causing new problems for the engineers. As widely known, a steel material that has been exposed to plastic deformation will suffer hardening in those areas. The work in this paper, exemplified in a deployed demonstrator, show that it is possible to combine forming and crashworthiness simulations in an automated way to make advanced simulation accessible to more people in the product development process. The Knowledge Enabled Engineering (KEE) demonstrator combines forming and crashworthiness simulations for dealing with the constant trade-off in ED.

Abstract [en]

The concept of functional products affects the business as a whole. The hardware will be offered to customers as one part incorporated in a total offer. The offer as a whole compromise services related to and/or designed into that hardware. The product development level will be affected, this emerging development process is called Functional Product Development (FPD). Computer tools to support decisions in engineering design are commonly used by design teams. Today, these tools are considered to be internal and support engineering specific knowledge. However, FPD insists on collaboration between companies to achieve additional knowledge. The purpose in this paper is to discuss new demands on computer tools to support decisions in FPD.

Abstract [en]

Today's automotive industry produces more new car models in a shorter time than ever before. Every car model comes in many different versions regarding number of doors, engine, transmission etc while being built on a platform strategy. This leads to a lot of different knowledge and information that needs to be tracked for the different components in addition to other information e.g. what function does design features have, why is this radius not smaller etc. Volvo Car Corporation (VCC) is in need of an effective method to save and present all this knowledge and information today. This paper describes a new method, to gather and save knowledge and information about car body parts also called body-inwhite, which was implemented in a demonstrator and tested and evaluated on VCC.
