PLM-based approach for Assembly Process Engineering
by Frederic Demoly, Samuel Gomes, Benoit Eynard, Louis Rivest
International Journal of Manufacturing Research (IJMR), Vol. 5, No. 4, 2010

Abstract: The paper presents a methodology in the field of Design for Assembly (DFA) related to the Assembly Process Engineering (APE) and the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). This method has been designed to develop assembly methods into a legacy web-based PLM prototype. It takes into consideration assembly constraints in the early phases of the product development process in compliance with concurrent engineering challenge. A racing car ground-link system from an experimental case study is introduced to illustrate the proposed approach.
