Product life-cycle management tools and collaborative tools applied to an automotive case study uri icon


  • Learning engineering nowadays requires acquiring the necessary skills to remain competitive in an increasingly flat world, as well as the ability to deal with practical problems using edge technology. Modern learning techniques attempt to compensate some of the shortcomings suffered by more traditional approaches, by including real-life industrial problems in the academic environment. The main contribution of this paper is to explore a Collaborative Learning Method to achieve the integration of learning techniques, Product Life-Cycle Management (PLM) and collaborative tools to tackle projects for the automotive industry. The method is implemented and validated via a case study on design engineering. © 2008 TEMPUS Publications.
