Platform Strategies from a PLM Perspective - Theory and Practice for the Aerospace Industry
Paper in proceedings, 2012

The fierce competition of today pushes companies to be more effective in developing, producing and delivering their products. Reusing knowledge, often through adopting platform based development, is recognized as a necessity to be able to compete. This paper analyzes platform approaches from a Product Lifecycle Management perspective and how well they cover the aerospace industry’s needs. A literature study gathers several different platform strategies and maps them to what is needed to be able to cover the product from cradle to grave. As a first step towards bridge the gaps, a case study at an aerospace supplier is performed, resulting in a PLM architecture for developing, configuring and verifying a Turbine Rear Structure.
