Increasing Innovation by Sharing Knowledge in Teamcenter

Man oh MAN! When you design 1,000 engines per year – each of which has about 50,000 parts and 130 variants – you have a lot of knowledge to manage. Christian Rasmussen, project manager at MAN Diesel A/S, presented this morning on his company’s product configuration built on Teamcenter to manage the engineering workflow. In the video clip he describes the complexity of its 2-stroke diesel engines the company designs as well as the main challenge Teamcenter product configuation addressed.

The goals of the project were:
– to increase quality and speed by automating processes
– make knowledge more accessible
– convert tacit knowledge into explicit
– increase innovation through sharing knowledge

With decentralized workforces, it is increasingly critical to centralize knowledge.
