Abstract [en]

The company Gestamp HardTech AB has founded the Hot Stamping technology and perform manufacturing of automotive components in Luleå, Sweden. The specialised Tooling Division has a long experience and apply the latest technology when developing the Hot Stamping Tools for manufacturing of the components. High Speed Machining, Try-Out pressing and five-axis processing integrated with CAD/CAM and CAE are examples of modern functions within the company. This report describes the thesis in the education of the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Luleå University of Technology, Sweden. The topic is a methodological development of the Product Lifecycle Management-system Siemens Teamcenter with focus on Product Data Management. The product data that manages are drawings and manufacturing documentation, Bill of Materials and assembly instructions. The information comes from Computer Aided Design files (CAD) and this report describes how these areas can become integrated and how the information then can become represented and available for users. The purpose is to improve the way of working and give answer on how the company can apply and work with the interface in relation to the components that are manufactured as well as included in the product development.Chapter 2 to 6 constitutes the main part of the thesis work where an introduction is written and then goes on to the sections about the theory and method. The method applied is a form of mind-mapping based on Application Guides that through the branches sorts out the ingoing functions within the interface Teamcenter. The method is applied to be able to find out how the functions should be related to be able to answer the question. As a complement to the study questionnaires have sent out to the employees at the CAM Engineering Division and Tooling Division and an interview has been implemented at the Division of Technology at the Norrbotten County Council. The interview was about the Version Management systems applied in the daily work with the purpose of extending the perspectives and approaches to the benefit of the thesis work.As the PLM-system is very wide, it was clear at an early stage that several solution paths are applicable. A weighting method has been applied to the solution paths that are possible and that involve several of the thesis results. Chapter 5 is the empirical section divided into analyse, results and conclusions where each subsection from the method section follows as subheadings. The results that are described can be divided into three parts. There are two different requirements in order to implement the generating of various types of reports and formats. Partly there is a requirement to adapt the Data Model through the standalone interface Business Modeler IDE (BMIDE). Then the objects are defined in the Teamcenter interface and thereafter being able to implement queries on specific objects related to a Hot Stamping Tool project. In that way files can become exported and imported to be able to work with the information in a self-generating way.With continued work with the interface is collaboration between several people recommended. The reason is that the interface requires a wide knowledge and experience in both programming and product development. This is because there is a difference between using the interface of the product development and adapts the system to how to use it.
