Project #02

This project have been a successful tentative to quickly replace and existing and popular vehicle, building it up to an existing small platform a very styling and fashion car using many common systems. The project plan has been drastically contracted respect to the standard and many different stile proposals have been meticulously analysed.

Product description:

This project have been a successful tentative to quickly replace and existing and popular vehicle, building it up to an existing small platform a very styling and fashion car using many common systems. The project plan has been drastically contracted respect to the standard and many different stile proposals have been meticulously analysed.

Objective:

Product development from the Style support up to the 60% of part detailing:

  • Front bumper (100% developed)
  • Rear bumper
  • Front end
  • Side doors
  • Bonnet
  • Tail gate
  • BIW
  • Fender

Key activities:

  • Micro project management
  • Style feasibility
  • Resident liaison engineer in Customer’s premises
  • Style verification for manufacturability
  • Homologation verifications
  • Packaging definition
  • Ergonomics definition
  • Typical sections
  • Design concepts
  • Welding feasibility and Assembly sequence proposal in agreement with assembly team direction
  • Supplier interaction for main part manufacturability and performances

Output:

  • CAS surfaces feasibility studies
  • 3D data and 2D drawings of parts and assemblies and studies
  • Clash and clearance Analysis (DMU
  • BOM and load sequences proposal
  • Main reference system proposal
  • Modification management

KPI’s:

  • Process duration – March 2008 – November 2008

MGRD added value and achievement:

  • Proactive response during feasibility studies to reach model feasibility trough technical surface creation.
  • Efficient iteration with tooling expert to reach the feasibility of very complex geometry resulting from stile intent.
