Product Lifecycle Management in an Open Industry Framework

Abstract : The basic concept of “an Open Industry Framework” is proposed. Current industry framework is closed and industries are making their efforts to produce best quality products in their own particular field. This is because current industries developed on the basis of their inventions. But quickly increasing diversification and frequent and extensive changes are calling for an open framework. In this new framework, industries operate on the basis of Parallel Distributed Processing model. They process multiple tasks in parallel among different types of industries. To achieve such a goal, modular production is called for but current ones are not fully integrated between design and manufacturing. We have to develop a module system which integrates design and manufacturing and which can be shared across industries. When such a system is developed, industries will be divided into two groups. One is subsystem suppliers and the other is system integrators. The subsystem here works in the same way as Lego pieces. Such a framework will enable to distribute production activities to local factories according to their capabilities so that it will increase local employment and their buying power. And we do not have to carry heavy final product over a long distance. Thus, an Open Industry Framework will reduce time to market, cost and energy consumption considerably and industries can be more flexible and adaptive and can satisfy the basic needs of customers.
