Marchezan, A. and Andreassa, M., "A Software Proposal based on Design Axiomatic Applied into Automobile Advanced Engineering," SAE Technical Paper 2013-36-0267, 2013, doi:10.4271/2013-36-0267.
The largest automobile companies have several corporate, regulatory and customer requirements to integrate into engineering of development . These information need to be split in technical team called disciplines as electrical, chassis, powertrain, etc. The advanced engineering team is responsible to conduct this process with general purpose of facilitating the managing and tracking of creation and execution of the total vehicle/system.However, the interrelation, complexity and lack of engineer's know-how of these systems have been creating innumerous issues into development, launch, manufactory and quality. Insufficient dedicated tools, requirement definitions and poor initial programs formulation are some reasons of these issues.It means that the ability applied in advanced engineering principles and analytical techniques in an automotive engineering context have to be improved.The design axiomatic is a powerful theory applied into vehicle system and component level to understand the engineering design process, at both, the conceptual and detail levels and to reduce the gap among information systems.This paper shows an example of the simple software based on design axiomatic where it shows the critical gaps among the technical teams (disciplines) that must be tracked during a more robust and reliable development.
