Taking the LEAP

Information technology is critical to the future of manufacturing. The EU LinkedDesign project aims to help manufacturers harness and use information.

Taking the LEAP

• Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the main concepts of the LinkedDesign approach and the main elements of LEAP.

• Chapter 2, "LEAP data and knowledge integration infrastructure," by Eric Peukert and Christian Wartner, introduces LEAP's data and knowledge integration infrastructure.

• Chapter 3, "LEAP semantics," by Soumaya El Kadiri, Ana Milicic, Kostas Pardalis and Eric Peukert, proposes the LEAP semantic model, based on the design of an upper ontology describing the LEAP domain and its specialization to three industrial use cases: Volkswagen, COMAU and Aker Solutions.

• Chapter 4, "LEAP product and manufacturing design support system," by Daniele Cerri and Sergio Terzi, presents the development of the so-called "LEAP model for design support" and the life-cycle costing (LCC) and life-cycle assessment (LCA) methodologies as they have been used in the COMAU use case.

• Chapter 5, "LEAP Collaboration System," by Kjetil Kristensen, John Krogstie, Dirk Ahlers and Mahsa Mehrpoor, presents the models, concepts, elements and technology components that—when combined and structured in a meaningful way to teams of end users—enable companies to execute split location engineering projects in a way that represents a competitive advantage.

• Chapter 6, "LEAP Interoperability standards," by Kary Främling, Andrea Buda, Sylvain Kubler, Jacopo Cassina, Eva Coscia, Simone Parrotta, Sergio Terzi and Daniele Cerri, presents interoperability standards developed for this purpose, published by The Open Group: Open Messaging Interface (O-MI) and Open Data Format (O-DF). This chapter describes the design principles and provides a description of the standards, including implementation principles and examples of real-life implementations.

• Chapter 7, "LEAP Virtual Obeya," by Monica Rossi, Matteo Cocco, SergioTerzi, Kjetil Kristensen, Simone Parrotta, John Krogstie and Dirk Ahlers, presents the LEAP Virtual Obeya, a flexible concept that incorporates lean thinking and enables new visual project-management approaches in teams engaged in specific processes, such as innovation and engineering design. It offers enhanced support for specific tasks, including problem solving, decision making, co-editing, and issue or task management.

• Chapter 8, "LEAP use cases," by Ana Milicic, Soumaya El Kadiri, Fernando Perales, Simone Parotta and Geir Iversen, describes several LinkedDesign use cases and explains how the LEAP platform is being exploited for given tasks.
