Abstract [en]

Today, much emphasis is put on globalization, collaboration, integration, and standardization in the engineering world. While this generally is both necessary and desirable, it does raise one important question: How does a company protect its key competence against imitators, copycats, and plagiarisms? In a project we have studied this question from a product data perspective, i.e., we leave out legal-, commercial-, and IT-aspects. The traditional approach has been to rely on the physical protection of the drawing archive combined with simple security classification on the documents themselves. We found this to be too simplistic, and instead we have developed a more elaborate, but still tentative model to identify the data to be protected. This model starts with product characteristics, e.g., product type, product concept maturity, expected life, and degree of customization. Further, the business strategy, e.g., customer focus vs. technical leadership vs. operational excellence is described. These product and business properties are mapped to the relevant processes and methods within the company, e.g., product development or order handling, as well as to the supporting systems and information structures. Finally, mapping is made to the individual data elements which are to be protected. In this model we do not only identify the data elements themselves, but also the context within which they need protection. This context can thus be a customer order, a development project, or a certain time frame. We illustrate the use of our model with industrial test cases and conclude with a proposal for future work.
