s744 - Architecture Management the Whirlpool Way

Session Description

If Whirlpool’s PLM solution is the “industrial toolkit” enabling them to meet the needs of the enterprise by managing architecture complexity than Systems Engineering is the “heavy duty engine” putting supercharged power into their implementation. Learn how Whirlpool is approaching Architecture Management using PTC’s PLM solution and a Model-Based System Engineering approach. From Integrity Modeler in early architecture development to Windchill for BOM creation and management, and Creo for configurable CAD, Whirlpool is transforming everything about Architecture Management. And, with over 100 years of experience in the consumer appliance industry, this is not a clean sheet operation. Whirlpool must develop and deploy processes and tools that support everything from advanced R&D to existing product lines with legacy infrastructure. Come and hear experiences from their journey in pursuit of managed architectures.

Additional Information
Product Design & Business Process
Product Design & Engineering
Architecture Management is more than creating a BOM; it is the link that allows the communication of the right data at the right time to the right stakeholders throughout the Product Lifecycle.
Architecture Management must balance the needs for innovation and technology advances on new architectures while still maintaining stability in existing architectures.
PLM and Systems Engineering create a valuable framework to enable Architecture Management; the tools and the processes create the digital thread between requirements and design.
