Contribution à l'intégration d'un environnement collaboratif en conception amont de produits.

Abstract : Few software tools are currently available to assist the early stages of mechanical product design (Mougenot, 2008), particularly as a collaborative structure to support the activity of project designers. Yet, almost 80% of the future expenses in the project are decided in these stages alone (Michaels and Wood, 1989). In this context, our research proposes a model as a basis to define a collaborative environment for the early stages of the design process, intended for deployment in businesses. Our research rests on an experimental protocol, based on interviews carried out on end users working within businesses. This approach allowed us to describe work in the early stages of the design process, in a variety of industrial domains, and to show that the development and optimization of a collaborative work environment dedicated to the early stages of design mainly relies on image-type Intermediate Representations (IRs). We show that identifying and digitizing these IRs are necessary prerequisites to define this work environment, and that some profession-specific constraints can also be supported by these IRs. The model that stems from this work allows us to formulate specifications to develop a software tool to assist the development of collaborative work environments, integrated in a PLM environment for mechanical design.
