A smart performance measurement approach for collaborative design in Industry 4.0

A smart performance measurement approach for collaborative design in Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, focuses on intelligent and smart manufacturing. This paper investigates a smart Design Performance Measurement (DPM) approach, which can be utilised to support performance measurement implementation during a collaborative design process. Firstly, we develop a smart product design framework with Industry 4.0 enabling technologies to support key design stages in an iterative fashion. Secondly, based on this framework, we propose a smart design performance measurement approach to potentially support a smart product design project management via its performance management. Thirdly, we adapt our existing DPM, for a traditional design environment into a smart design environment at its early stage to test its feasibility. This approach features integration of a flexible performance measurement setup, a multi-feedback DPM mechanism and a multiple DPM results presentation which allows the DPM approach to produce flexible and customised operations by connecting DPM with the stage-based design objectives, balancing DPM feedbacks through interoperability between collaborative design team members and providing real-time DPM results to guide design activities. An empirical industrial evaluation case study indicates that the proposed DPM approach can support design team members in improving their collaborative design performance.

Abstract

Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, focuses on intelligent and smart manufacturing. This paper investigates a smart Design Performance Measurement (DPM) approach, which can be utilised to support performance measurement implementation during a collaborative design process. Firstly, we develop a smart product design framework with Industry 4.0 enabling technologies to support key design stages in an iterative fashion. Secondly, based on this framework, we propose a smart design performance measurement approach to potentially support a smart product design project management via its performance management. Thirdly, we adapt our existing DPM, for a traditional design environment into a smart design environment at its early stage to test its feasibility. This approach features integration of a flexible performance measurement setup, a multi-feedback DPM mechanism and a multiple DPM results presentation which allows the DPM approach to produce flexible and customised operations by connecting DPM with the stage-based design objectives, balancing DPM feedbacks through interoperability between collaborative design team members and providing real-time DPM results to guide design activities. An empirical industrial evaluation case study indicates that the proposed DPM approach can support design team members in improving their collaborative design performance.
