1. Introduction

Qinghai measuring and cutting tools Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Qinghai measuring and cutting tools) is located in Xining Economic and Technological Development Zone, Qinghai Province, China. It is a high-tech enterprise in Qinghai Province, the earliest manufacturer in China's measuring and cutting tools industry, and has grown into the largest micrometer production company in China. It covers an area of nearly 50000 square meters, has modern production plants and excellent office environment, has nearly 1000 sets of advanced processing and testing equipment, and produces micrometers with the most complete varieties and specifications and the best quality. In addition to micrometers, the company also produces calipers, gauges, gauges, cutting tools and other products, and has built a new modern enterprise with initial scale

with the rapid development of information technology today, enterprise leaders are keenly aware that without a good grasp of information technology, it will be difficult to stand in a favorable position in the market. On the other hand, with the continuous development and expansion of the enterprise, the drawings, product data, resources and experience of the enterprise are constantly increasing and enriched. It is increasingly difficult to meet the needs of the market and modern management by relying on the original simple CAD and workshop level manual information management mode. Although enterprises have successfully implemented some application systems and significantly improved the efficiency of enterprise resources in supply, production, marketing, cost and other links, there is still an urgent need for a design data management and control platform in information construction, integrating various application systems, so that the data formed by various departments of the enterprise can be shared, the design and management business processes can be optimized, and effectively controlled to improve work efficiency

2. Determination of the project

because the design data resource management of Qinghai Liangren is managed and maintained manually, which is not convenient for query and utilization, and hinders the sharing and collaborative work of enterprise design resources, it is very necessary to establish a unified enterprise information management platform, establish a unified product database, and a complete technical document management system, so that the product data is in an effective and orderly management, Provide convenient tools for relevant personnel to query, browse, borrow and output reports, and provide accurate, consistent and complete product technical data for subsequent process, production, supply, quality control, finance, sales and other departments. Products are used in construction engineering, all aluminum household, industrial materials, aerospace materials and other fields

therefore, under the direct leadership of Qinghai Provincial Department of science and technology, Qinghai Provincial Productivity Promotion Center organized relevant well-known domestic information technology service software suppliers to conduct a detailed analysis and Research on the current situation of Qinghai Liangren management. According to the characteristics of enterprise management and the needs of information technology management, it proposed to implement product data management (PDM) system to solve the dilemma of Qinghai Liangren design data management, Qinghai Liangren is determined as a typical demonstration enterprise of "drawing rejection + account rejection table" in the "Qinghai manufacturing informatization technology demonstration project"

with the strong support of the leaders of Qinghai Liangren, after a comprehensive evaluation of the company strength, software product function characteristics and after-sales service of several relevant domestic software suppliers and service providers, and after a detailed and thorough type selection investigation and analysis, it was finally decided to choose the xtpdm system of Beijing Exeter information technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Beijing Exeter) as the enterprise's design data information management platform

Beijing Exeter has the honor to exchange and share the work experience and achievements obtained in the enterprise's information construction for many years with Qinghai Liangren, so as to contribute to the construction of enterprise information system

3. Main problems faced by the enterprise

after the cooperative relationship was determined, the implementation personnel carried out a detailed and comprehensive investigation in the enterprise, and found that the main problems faced by the enterprise include the following aspects:

1. The design data management of the enterprise is managed and maintained manually, and the documents that need to be archived are copied and stored by the designers on the ERP database server, and the data are organized and stored in the form of folders, It is not convenient for query and utilization, and is not conducive to the actual work needs such as the query, summary and change of electronic drawings, which hinders the sharing and collaborative work of enterprise design resources

2. The material data required in the ERP system is entered into the ERP system by manually maintaining Excel files. The inheritance and accuracy of the data are difficult to be guaranteed, and the workload of designers is increased

3. Although the drawing application conforms to the standard and is suitable for the actual application of enterprises, it is not standardized and cannot meet the requirements of data integration

4. Frequent product design changes are easy to cause inconsistencies between electronic drawings and paper drawings, which is not conducive to the management of drawing versions and cannot ensure the accuracy, consistency, effectiveness and traceability of data

4. Implement objectives and plans step by step

in order to ensure the real-time, traceability and relevance of enterprise data, ensure the uniqueness and integrity of data in all links, realize the global sharing of data in one place, reduce repeated work, improve efficiency, avoid errors, and clarify customer needs, Exeter company has built a unified enterprise information management platform for enterprises. Through scientific information management, Improve design efficiency

according to the above determined objectives, a step-by-step implementation plan is formulated as follows:

Step 1: formulate existing data collation specifications suitable for enterprises, enter existing product resources into xtpdm product database, realize the effective management of existing product resources of enterprises, and solve the problem of low reuse rate of product resources caused by decentralized management

step 2: formulate standardized, standard and integrated drawing styles and drawing specifications to solve the problem that the existing CAD drawings of enterprises cannot meet the requirements of data integration

step 3: realize change control and version management to ensure the accuracy, consistency, effectiveness and traceability of data

step 4: realize the management of various drawings, details and documents generated in the process of product development and design change management in PDM system to ensure the accuracy and integrity of design data; At the same time, it can transmit accurate and complete data information for ERP system

5. Implementation benefit analysis

according to the implementation plan, Exeter started detailed and specific implementation work for this company's implementation personnel together with the implementation team members in the enterprise. After the happy cooperation between the two sides, the following product data management bottlenecks were solved for the enterprise in just 40 working days:

1. The problem of difficult management of enterprise product structure was solved

xtpdm organizes engineering data with product structure as the core, The hierarchical relationship of enterprise product data is clearly visible under a clear product structure view. At the same time, it provides query, modification and data organization based on product structure, which plays a "compendium" role in the management of enterprise product data

according to the product characteristics of Qinghai Liangren, a series of product data management scheme based on product structure is provided to manage product drawings, schedules and related documents. The management method of xtpdm for product document data is shown in Figure 1 below. Through the warehousing operation of document documents in various formats, the document is automatically expanded to form a product structure tree, and then the product data is analyzed, shared, queried and browsed, and the product report is output. At the same time, the product data can be shared with other application departments

2. It solves the retrieval problem of enterprise product data

xtpdm provides a variety of query methods, which can be queried not only according to the attributes of drawings, but also according to the mutual relationship of product structure. Through an effective safety management system, the needs of technicians for enterprise data can be met to the greatest extent within the scope of safety, that is, "accurate people can get accurate information and accurate versions at the right time"

in xtpdm, you can find the stored parts and documents according to the part attributes, such as drawing number, name, material, specification, designer, time and other information. Support fuzzy search and precise search, as shown in Figure 2 below

figure document search

the component results of the query can be directly related to the node of the product structure tree to visually see its location in the structure tree, as well as complete attributes, documents, etc

for convenience, xtpdm also provides a query view, directly input the drawing number, instantly display the list of all qualified parts, and automatically expand the product structure tree. In xtpdm, click a part to view all its technical data in the PDM system, including design documents, process documents, engineering change orders, part attributes, detailed attributes, etc., making xtpdm a management platform for all technical data. You can browse drawings directly in xtpdm without installing CAD software on this machine, as shown in Figure 3 below

3. Solve the problem of extracting enterprise engineering information

with the continuous deepening of "drawing board project", CAD software (two-dimensional and three-dimensional) has become the main tool for enterprises to define products. How the engineering information contained in CAD files enters the production organization department is one of the key links to improve production efficiency. PDM and CAD series products are closely integrated, providing a tool for extracting engineering information from CAD software

4. Strengthen the management of enterprise common parts and standard parts

how to improve the borrowing rate of parts in products, and turn parts with high borrowing rate into enterprise standard parts or general parts, improve design efficiency and reduce production costs are issues of great concern to enterprises. Generally, in the manual state, it is difficult to manage enterprise standard parts and borrowed parts. The fundamental reason is that there is no effective data query and retrieval means. Through the enterprise general parts and standard parts management tools provided in xtpdm, Qinghai Liangren converts the original common parts with high utilization rate into enterprise standard parts or general parts to help enterprises realize the classification management of parts, as shown in Figure 4 below

ordinary parts are converted into enterprise standard parts or general parts

5. Through borrowing analysis: check the borrowing of product parts

according to the habits of general enterprises, when some parts are borrowed several times, they can be upgraded to enterprise standard parts. Qinghai Liangren uses the statistics function of parts borrowing times provided by xtpdm system to regularly count which parts have been borrowed more than the specified times, as shown in Figure 5 below

product borrowing analysis

the above figure shows the borrowing analysis interface of a product. You can see which parts of the product are borrowed from other products and what the borrowing rate is. Figure 6 below shows the statistical query of parts borrowing

6. Provide accurate data for subsequent ERP systems through product data analysis

for ERP systems, whether the data is accurate or not is the basis for whether the system can be put into operation. Therefore, the xtpdm system is used to accurately control the data to the front, and the data integrity, consistency, accuracy and other inspection functions are carried out according to the product structure tree. The contents are as follows:

· drawing consistency inspection: check whether the drawing title and detailed data are consistent

· integrity analysis: check whether there is a lack of drawings under the product structure tree

· relevance analysis: check whether redundant drawings are archived

· accuracy analysis: check whether the product structure tree, component attribute data and ERP basic database data are consistent
