Abstract [en]

SCANIA does the automobile production based on Modular Approach. A ModularSystem provides a huge variety of specifications to meet varying dramatic needs fordifferent customers. Modular approach with the support of reusable components increasesthe efficiency of designing different products.The main stream product design is performed on CATIA V5 platform with ENOVIAas its PDM vault. But SCANIA uses its own legacy PDM SPECTRA for maintainingthe product structure for modular based product specification.So to design the 3D parts in CATIA, one should import the product structure fromSPECTRA to ENOVIA. But this process includes a conversion from SPECTRA formatto ENOVIA format and currently it is performed using a third party componentnamed ECCO. Now, SCANIA wants to replace ECCO for various reasons with inhousebuild module.This report discusses the background knowledge of the problem, methodology usedin the solution approach, different implementations along with their results and finallyconcluding with future work of solutions.
