L'âge des low tech : vers une civilisation techniquement soutenable by Philippe Bihouix( )

6 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People often believe that we can overcome the profound environmental and climate crises we face by smart systems, green innovations and more recycling. However, the quest for complex technological solutions, which rely on increasingly exotic and scarce materials, makes this unlikely. A best-seller in France, this English language edition introduces readers to an alternative perspective on how we should be marshalling our resources to preserve the planet and secure our future. Bihouix skilfully goes against the grain to argue that 'high' technology will not solve global problems and envisages a different approach to build a more resilient and sustainable society
CADCAM : from principles to practice by Chris McMahon( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Providing an integrated presentation of the application of computers to product design and manufacture, this book concentrates on the theme that CAD/CAM involves the use of computers to create, manipulate and apply models of engineering products and systems
Advances in integrated design and manufacturing in mechanical engineering by Alan N Bramley( )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a selection of papers related to the fifth edition of book further to the International Conference on Integrated Design and Manufacturing in Mechanical Engineering. This Conference has been organized within the framework of the activities of the AIP-PRIMECA network whose main scientific field is Integrated Design applied to both Mechanical Engineering and Productics. This network isorganized along the lines of a joint project: the evolution, in the field of training of Integrated Design in Mechanics and Productics, in quite close connection with the ever changing industrial needs over the past 20 years. It is in charge of promoting both exchanges of experience and know-how capitalisation. It has a paramount mission to fulfil, be it in the field of initial and continuous education, technological transfer and knowledge dissemination through strong links with research labs. For the second time, in fact, the IDMME Conference has been held abroad and, after Canada in 2000, the United Kingdom, more particularly Bath University, has been retained under the responsibility of Professor Alan Bramley, the Chairman of the Scientific Committee of the conference. The Scientific Committee members have selected all the lectures from com mplete papers, which is the guarantee for the Conference of quite an outstanding scientific level. After that, a new selection hasbeen carried out to retain the best publications, which establish in a book, a state-of-the-art analysis as regards Integrated Design and Manufacturing in the discipline of Mechanical Engineering
Collaborative product design and manufacturing methodologies and applications by W. D Li( )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recently, there have been major innovations and paradigm shifts in product design methodologies and systems. The current R&D trend is the development of collaborative design and manufacturing methodologies and systems. Using a collaborative product development system, designers can participate in global design chains and collaborate with each other and overseas partners to pursue competitive advantages. It also allows designers to work closely with suppliers, manufacturing partners and customers across enterprise firewalls to obtain valuable inputs for their designs. Collaborative Product Design and Manufacturing Methodologies and Applications is an introduction to a wide spectrum of collaborative engineering issues in design and manufacturing. It contains state-of-the-art chapters written by international experts from academia and industry and reflects the most up-to-date R&D work and applications, especially those from the last three to five years. Collaborative Product Design and Manufacturing Methodologies and Applications is an essential reference for academics, upper-level undergraduate and graduate students and practitioners specialising in collaborative design and manufacturing issues, concurrent engineering, Internet-based/intelligent design and manufacturing, CAD/PDM/CAPP/CAM, Internet applications, product lifecycle management, supply chain, etc

Processus d'Intégration des Fournisseurs dans le Développement de Systèmes de Produits-Services by Matthieu Yager( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un système de produits-services est une offre composée de produits et de services dont l'objectif est d'apporter une forte valeur ajoutée aux besoins des clients. Le développement de telles offres requiert de nombreuses compétences, certaines étant maîtrisées par l'entreprise qui initie ce développement, d'autres étant spécifiques à ses fournisseurs. Collaborer avec ces derniers est devenu crucial pour l'entreprise cliente afin de répondre aux besoins d'innovation, d'être plus réactif vis-à-vis de l'évolution des marchés et d'optimiser le tryptique coût, qualité et délai de l'offre finale. De telles collaborations nécessitent d'être soigneusement construites, puis managées, pour que le développement de la nouvelle offre soit un succès. Le projet de recherche présenté dans ce mémoire, mené lors d'une thèse sous contrat CIFRE avec Schneider Electric, contribue à la mise en œuvre d'une collaboration client-fournisseurs performante dans le développement de systèmes de produits-services. L'objectif de ce travail était de formaliser un processus permettant de structurer la collaboration, ceci afin de venir en support aux équipes menant des projets en collaboration avec des fournisseurs. Le résultat porté par ce projet de recherche est un processus de co-développement, intégrant l'approche managériale du développement d'une nouvelle offre, avec la dimension relationnelle qui caractérise la manière dont se vit la collaboration au quotidien. Une recherche de type ingénierique a été menée. Elle s'appuie sur sept études de cas conduites au sein de l'entreprise Schneider Electric et auprès de six autres entreprises issues de secteurs industriels différents tels l'armement, la cosmétique ou encore l'assurance. De nombreux acteurs, intervenant au niveau central dans les entreprises et dans les projets de développement, ont été sollicités aussi bien du côté des entreprises clientes que de celui des fournisseurs. Le processus de co-développement, que nous proposons ici, se fonde sur le cycle de vie de la collaboration et le cycle de vie de l'offre. D'une part, il décrit les activités managériales et leur séquencement, les rôles et responsabilités de chaque fonction impliquée dans le projet et les liens avec les autres processus de l'entreprise. Cette approche, dite top-down, permet de comprendre la collaboration client-fournisseurs dans son ensemble et d'anticiper les activités à mener avec les fournisseurs. D'autre part, cette approche managériale a été enrichie par des illustrations des pratiques collaboratives décrivant les interactions au jour le jour entre les acteurs client et fournisseurs. Cette seconde approche, de type bottom-up, insiste sur la dimension relationnelle au sein du projet. Elle caractérise les interactions entre les participants au quotidien et contribue ainsi à la création de confiance et d'engagement, à l'alignement des efforts, à l'apprentissage mutuel : des éléments nécessaires à la réussite du développement de la nouvelle offre. L'originalité de notre travail réside dans la combinaison de ces deux approches dans l'élaboration d'un même processus, combinaison qui permet de comprendre comment s'effectue au quotidien le co-développement d'un nouveau système de produits-services entre plusieurs entreprises
