You can use the Integrated Product and Process Engineering (iPPE) component to collect all the data for an entire product life cycle in one integrated model. Use. The Integrated Product and Process Engineering component (iPPE) lets you collect, in an integrated model, all product lifecycle data specifically for.

Are ippf any other iple for the creation of process structure, line design. Create Access variants for Access node: For example, for car manufacturing different process are involved like Stamping, Welding, Painting, Engine Assembly, Inspection etc.

You maintain the data in a functional structure, which you fill with more data at later stages in the product development, thus representing the whole product life cycle.

In variants tab we need to mention the different component variants available for Structural Node. Manage changes to routing data Engineering Change Management You can use a change number when you change a mode. Now we have done our Product design the Product structure Hierarchy will look like below —. If we need to retrieve the data, what are the tables or function modules to be used.

The process structure is particularly suited for planning routings on production lines with takts where the materials are always processed in the same manner. Hi Arshad, Really nice explanation, ipe sure yet how it will work for us yet.

The iPPE process structure exclusively supports repetitive manufacturing with takt-based production lines. Once the product is designed we can handover this product for manufacturing. It is not necessary to assign precise materials or dap, for example, at this stage. The complete iPPE model includes not just the process structure, but also the product structure for BOMsand line design.


You can represent a complete production model because Integrated Product and Process Engineering allows you to keep the master data for BOMs, routings, and line design in one model. Assigning Material to Class: In the filter we enter the Configurable Economy car material and Plant, Usage details. When you do not use ECM, there is exactly one valid status for each object in the system.

The components that you want to assign to the activities in the process structure must be maintained in the product variant structure. You can assign documents, such as technical drawings, texts, and so on, in a process structure, if the documents are edited in the Document Management System.

Individual activities cannot be used more than once, that is, you cannot use the same individual activity in different routing headers or grouping activities. It contains details about the design of Product and its different components.

Line balancing is based on the duration that you define for the activities in a process structure. You can use iPPE to document data, and later re-use and update it, from early phases of the research and development process for a product. In this case, you can only manage product data but no process data. We will explore how a uppe can be designed using iPPE Workbench. For more information about the above components, see Variant ConfigurationClassificationand Change Management.

April 27, at 6: Summary The above document just describes how a multivariant product can be designed in iPPE workbench. It is particularly suited to products with many variants. You can ippf processing times and transfer these times to Integrated Product and Process Engineering. Creating Multi-Level Process Structures. CA Document Management System. Is the configuration profile same for Production and Engineering?

It is particularly suited to repetitive manufacturing. Assign documents CA Document Management System You can assign documents, such as technical drawings, texts, and so on, in a process structure, if the documents are edited in the Document Management System.


We will design a Car which essentially comes in two variants Economy and Luxury. Once you have assigned the values these values will appear in the filter.

Former Member March 27, at 9: Now we need to choose the Classification View also to enter the Class name for the Material. Configuration profile is assigned to Configurable material via transaction CU Create components of the Car: The process structure is connected to Product Cost Controlling.

The process structure is the basis for line balancing in line design. We need to save this filter for future reuse and once we refresh the Navigation tree only those nodes for Economy car and component variants of Economy car will be displayed in the tree as below. Now we have our Classification data available, we need to assign this Class data to Material so that the material inherits all the Characteristics.

This is just the basics of iPPE. When we store or create a filter. This module is basically used in design phase of the Product. First we need to model these components as Characteristics with its expected values. Calculate costs for production activities. This Class can be reused across Materials which inherit all these Characteristics.

The car has essentially three components for simplicity — Engine, Chassis, Wheels. Once we click the ippw, it will take to the value assignment of Characteristics. The components have different variants like below —.
