Production Platform Development Through the Four Loops of Concern

Abstract

Managing product variety is still an issue in the industry, and one that
gets a lot of attention. Among several ways to address this issue, is the development of platforms. Platforms, for instance coupled with the use of reconfigurable manufacturing systems, can potentially enable manufacturers to deal with a more dynamic market, an increase in variation and decrease in product lifecycle. The development of these platforms and systems is often difficult to begin, and even more so to finish. This paper presents a method for developing and co-developing product and production system platforms, using concepts from the field of software architecture development. Development and implementation of the method were carried out through case studies in two Danish companies. The method is an iterative approach consisting of four loops with four steps each. It facilitates the utilisation of concepts and tools from software architecture development during the platform development process.
