The customer needed to integrate a complex assembly with multiple interfaces to other components and (concurrent) engineering teams. The requirements for this sequence and tooling included multiple use cases, a cleanroom environment and limited space.
The involvement of TBRM in solving this problem started with the concept design through to the documentation and integration of the tooling. After integration we provided support to prepare the project for serial production.
TBRM split the problem into four different sequence steps, to simplify documentation, realization, and use. We continued to design a full integration sequence to fit all the use cases and other requirements. In the end we delivered a full set of technical documentation for the tooling to satisfy the sequence steps that we had designed. In total we designed, documented, and managed approximately 900 parts and assemblies.
TBRM worked in close cooperation with the customer and other suppliers to ensure alignment between all interfaces. When faced with particularly complex issues, we made use of our Protoshop to produce Functional Models (FuMo’s) and prototypes to ensure that the design will satisfy all requirements. After all parts were manufactured, we provided integration support (Factory Acceptance) and optimized designs as needed to prepare the tooling for serial production.
