30 credits - MBD (Model Based Definition) for purchasing an external suppliers
Scania faces many exciting challenges in terms of digitisation within our integrated product realization process. The development of working methods as a model-based product description (drawing-less) enables more efficient working methods with shorter lead times and reduced quality shortage costs and supports a simulation-based product development and collaboration externally.
Today we have waste of double work. We collaborate and develop our products internally with models in 3D but continue to create CAD drawings to buy parts, collaborate internally and externally. Drawings have historically been used for far more than 200 years to describe our products, but with modern methods and computers we currently use primarily 3D internally at R&D - but we still continue to also create documents and 2D drawings with administrative updating as a result and with a risk of errors with diverging data (Drawing vs 3D). Today most parts cannot be described without 3D and manufacturing preparation can be made more efficient with 3D and enhance possibilities of early cross-functional interactions.
Scania CV AB is one of the world's leading manufacturers of heavy vehicles and engines for industrial and marine use. Scania has a constant need to streamline its processes and methods in order to be continuously competitive and profitable.
Degree project is an excellent way to get closer contact with Scania and build relationships and knowledge for the future. Many of today's employees started the Scania career with their degree project.
- clarify the current situation, business benefits, opportunities/limitations and to propose and highlight various possible solution options - both for purchasing different roles and our suppliers/manufacturers
- describe the necessary change activities with a introduction of a model-based approach and clarify how we can utilise the benefits in the area - what can we gain from the supplier collaboration, co-invention, quality, commercial, cost, time and time-to-market
- start an inventory to understand a number of external suppliers opportunities and maturity to work without drawings
