Session Title: Real-Time Engineering Metrics
Presenter: Shane Turner, Gulfstream Corporation
Date: December 6, 2011
Time: 11:00 am EST
PLM systems capture a significant amount of data that can be used to provide extensive real-time metrics to support the product development lifecycle.
The challenge is to use this information to provide predictive metrics and reporting in specialized formats at the right frequency (i.e. daily, weekly, ad-hoc) to all data consumers. This information needs to be highly accurate and easily updated. The presentation covers various methodologies and speficic techniques to enable real-time engineering metrics.
The presentation agenda:
- Engineering Data
- PLM Data Availability
- Real Data vs. People Data
- Reporting Methods
- Manual Updates vs. Live Data
- Data Pool – Full Data Pool vs. Selective Criteria
- Data Post-Processing
- Types of Reporting
- Program Level Data & Metrics
- Team Level Data & Metrics
- Predictive Metrics
- Right Time / Right Model Metrics
- User Level Tools
- QPS & Ad-Hoc Reporting
- Technical Reporting Methods
- Report Automation Techniques
- Final Formatting & Distribution
- Lessons Learned
Turner graduated from RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) with a BSME and then worked in manufacturing engineering, quality engineering, and product engineering. After compleing an MBA from Wake Forest University, he began working extensively with PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) deployments.
Turner gegan working with Gulfstream supporting the final phase SmarTeam PLM implmentation. Early in the G650 program was appointed as the PDT (Product Development Team) Lead for Data Management. As the PDT lead responsiblities included management of the check, document control, standard parts, scheduling / planning / metrics, user support / configuration management, and technical assistant teams. In mid-2010 became a principal engineer for data management.
