Abstract [en]

This paper deals with the complexity of providing support for electrical and electronics development in a global product lifecycle management (PLM) system. State-of-practice based on a case study performed in the automotive industry is reported on. A new approach named shifting lead is presented. Applied in IT/IS introduction projects this approach allows user groups or departments with dominating need to take lead in customization and pre-study projects. By balancing disciplinary needs this way a means to obtain process mapping, adapted IT/IS functionality and improved efficiency in the PLM system is obtained. Shifting lead is suggested as a way to create PLM support scalable to a majority of users. The approach is further elaborated to incorporate system integration approaches towards the emerging enterprise PLM system.

Abstract [en]

Due to different engineering background and limited technical prerequisites, trade-offs are needed when managing information in complex product development. The challenges faced with information management for complex product development are as much of organizational as technical character.

Information management has in this thesis been analyzed from both a technical and organizational dimension in order to obtain an integrated view and holistic understanding. The technical dimension focuses on information management systems, such as product lifecycle management systems. An information management system in itself does not solve problems in an organization; it manages at its best all types of business data while storing and retrieving information. In order to succeed, information management needs to be aligned with different needs and with a variety of domain-specific work procedures. The organizational dimension includes organizational structures, work procedures, and the designer and management perspectives on needs and benefits with information management.

Perceived benefits with integrated information management are identified as support for SE, work procedure mapping, use of disciplinary support tools, and data integrity and availability. Five technical and organizational key success factors for efficient information management are presented; usability, integration of information, motivation, information structure and organizational support. It is concluded that structured information, management support and motivation among designers are more important than customization of information management systems in order to achieve integrated information management.
