Improving manufacturing aspects and design methods for product portfolios
Keywords and Phrases
Product portfolios; Repository based search methods
"A strong need has emerged in the design industry, for an improved method of coding artifact information along with providing an effective and robust search method for matching specific functional information with customer needs. The new code is a representation of a subset of the information currently established in the UMR design repository...and is an evolution of past Group Technology Coding Schemes. The code is broken down into five elements: Component, Material, Manufacturing, Function, and Flow. The new GT code provides for a more complex coding scheme due to improved technology and allows for several arrangements based on needs and industry. The methodology and coding scheme described represents the initial conceptual design for a search algorithm"--Abstract, leaf iv.
