THE DIGITAL MATURITY MAP - MOTIVATION FOR AN EDM BASED VALIDATION METHOD
Throughout the assembly process chain in the automotive industry digital methods such as DMU or tools of the digital factory are used. Despite these improvements, it remains challenging to define a balanced validation process: How to cope with different requirements in a cross-domain scenario? How to allow the stakeholders their own, appropriate view of data and information? A holistic view of maturity and coverage is essential. Based on some fundamental definitions, this contribution introduces a maturity map as a new approach to specify requirements for an CAx/EDM concept, aiming at a seamless digital validation strategie in cross-domain environments.
