Title: ANALYSIS OF PRODUCT AND PROCESS DESIGN ACCORDING TO INDUSTRIAL V 4.0 PERSPECTIVE. As we are living in the era of the Industrial 4.0, which is characterized by the digitization of manufacturing, the engineers need to think forward for using digital tools and technology for the future growth and incremental increase in this Industrial Evolution. In this Industrial Evolution 4.0, the need for New Product Development is drastically increasing to make high-quality products more prolific. The companies are reverting swiftly to satisfy the customers’ demands and try to understand customers’ expectation and their mental framework about the new products. The manufacturers’ loyalty towards the customer also improves the market share. So, the Analysis of Product and Process Design plays a vital role in New Product Development. In the analysis of a product, the role of the designer is to create new products following a systematic approach starting from conceptualization and evaluation of ideas to execution of new products with digital tools. Thus, the designers must be able to communicate, visualize, analyze, 3D modeling products and produce tangible, and viable products suitable for the era of 4.0 Industrial world. Moreover, the digital thread is not only beneficial for analysis of the product and process design but also accommodating or permissive for managing the full product lifecycle starting from idea generation through product and process design, product development and finally to Disposal, wherein the Product lifecycle management (PLM) comes in. In this Industrial Revolution 4.0, all the data, processes, decisions and results at each stage of the product lifecycle need to be feed into the PLM Platform for obtaining better operational performance. PLM platform helps in accessing, tracking, and storing all the relevant and required data. Recording the changes and the services provided all to be maintained as the support for maintaining, connecting and exchanging of information in between departments by various Bill of Material’s (BOM’s), Engineering Bill of Materials (EBOM’S), Manufacturing Bill of Materials (MBOM’s). Furthermore, the rapid- advancement in technologies allows the engineers to design and manufacture products that often cannot be made by using traditional manufacturing methods, whereas Additive manufacturing which includes 3D printing technologies can be implemented. In addition to that, the product and process designers have more challenges in designing. To have won over a position, Designers can use 3D printing technologies by shortening the prototyping process. It enables the designers in stimulating new design and also able to experiment with new product development processes before releasing the product into the production phase. To throw a better insight and understanding, this project gives an overall idea of Product Lifecycle Management and how the Industrial 4.0 impact on NPD process. The Project also explains how to design and analyze the products and processes for increasingly smart manufacturing facilities.
