Product Realization Process Modeling: A Study of Requirements, Methods and Research Issues

Published

Author(s)

Kevin W. Lyons

Abstract

This report presents a bottom up view of the requirements, industry practices, and research questions which should drive new methods and computer tools for process modeling of product realization. It does not prescribe, or even discuss in detail, formal language specifications for modeling product realization processes. Comprehensive, enterprise-level models of the diverse human and machine task interactions necessary to build an electro-mechanical product are still premature. Instead, we have tried to address a wide range of industry-relevant modeling issues to help focus discussion on future research direction.
