Abstract
The lifecycles of products and factories are strongly related but typically considered separately. Therefore, the potentials of an holistic approach for the optimization and alignment of the lifecycles are not exploited. In the approach introduced in this paper, the different life cycles will be aligned by the development of a Reference Model that provides a detailed overview of all relevant domain specific and inter-domain interdependencies. This life cycle-oriented model enables the alignment of product design, process development, factory planning as well as production planning and factory operation. This approach envisions that all stakeholders in these activities will be supported by service-based software components, systems or digital tools without creating a single overloaded, hardly manageable system. These are called Engineering Apps (eApps). Their realization will support the achievement of higher process robustness and accuracy to provide the manufacturing customers with higher and more stable product and service quality.
