Article
Although companies systematically strive for a full digitalisation of their products and their processes, the design phase shows that the quality of models is very unequal. Indeed, detailed design benefits from much more sophisticated methods and tools than the specification and architecture activities. Although, we should note the recent paradigm...
Article
The design of large-scale engineered systems relies on the extensive use of models. Although there are few papers that study design review practices, we did not find any on model-based design reviews. Thus, we undertook a survey to collect current practices and challenges. We found that reviews are mainly synchronous co-located or remote meetings t...

Purpose The paper presents the processing pipeline of an assembly immersive simulation application which can manage the interaction between the virtual scene and user using stereoscopic display and haptic devices. A new set of elements are integrated in a Collaborative Virtual Environment (CVE) and validated using an approach based on subjective an...
Article
The uncertainty associated with patients’ demands and operators’ availabilities is the main complexity factor in planning health care activities. Thus, activity replanning is required to react to the variations and to guarantee a good service quality. A particularly complex replanning activity is required in Home Care (HC) services,where any variat...

Conference Paper
Home Care (HC) refers to nurse visits and other services provided at patients' homes rather than in hospitals or other health facilities. Planning human resources in HC is a complex activity, which includes several tasks and requires considering uncertain future patients' demands. We focus on the daily rescheduling of nurse visits in HC, for which...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The current study concerns the Assembly/Disassembly (A/D) process. Despite the latest improvements, the creation of a fully realistic VE is still challenging because of the complexity of the physical processes involved and the current limitations of the available VR technology. In this context, the main purpose of this research is to improve the A/...
Conference Paper
Actors involved in synchronous collaboration activities usually need to exchange information in order to make decisions. Collaboration is often expected, because of the need to discuss multiple views about the same system for negotiating the decision. Indeed, this is a complete cognitive, information and communication issue. In the home care contex...
Conference Paper
Manufacturing companies invested a lot in Product Life Management (PLM) system to save their competitiveness by a better management of their internal processes. The most deployed systems are Product Data Management tools. By deploying such systems they try to formalize complex behaviour of the company. But PLM systems did not solve complexity and n...

Manufacturing company must take up the gauntlet for ever changing customer demand. Taking the right decision for adapting its production system requires to analyse several aspects bound to different points of view, to consider all possible solutions and to coordinate experts interactions. In this paper we propose a well organized collaborative proc...
Article
Collaborative design of manufactured products is based on expertise sharing and decision making. It is a cognitive process where expert information must be communicated to collaborators for efficient decisions. CAD tools remain widely dedicated to single user and do not ease the collaboration process. With new arising technology including 3D device...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Product life management refers to every method or tools which participate to the collaboration of actors involved along the product life. The main topic concerns the organization of this cycle by mastering the evolution between its various phases. Collaboration is a main bottleneck since every phase will involve different experts. The main issue in...
Article
The development of information technologies, the increasing complexity of the information to be handled and analysed along with the increasing capacities in scientific and engineering simulations call for the development of increasingly powerful visualisation tools and methods. By integrating existing facilities, VISIONAIR is aimed at creating a wo...

This paper proposes an environment to ease the integration of Virtual reality and/or Augmented Reality into PLM applications. The use of the newest technologies remains a hard process in the real world applications since every scenario leads to a new specific development. We propose to integrate the final user who is usually a design or manufacturi...
Article
Full-text available
Best practice for collaborative design demands good interaction between its collaborators. The capacity to share common knowledge about design models at hand is a basic requirement. With current advancing technologies gathering collective knowledge is more straightforward, as the dialog between experts can be supported better. The potential for 3D...
Article
Product development became an increasingly collaborative and distributed activity. Collaborative design process gathers experts from different backgrounds and areas for a common objective about product development. An effective exchange support is expected to share and integrate design knowledge avoiding conflicts between designers. The management...
Article
The process of product development usually starts by the definition of requirements. Designers translate the initial requirements into function then into technical solutions. To integrate final users into this process is a complex task especially when non technical criteria are used to define the process (ergonomics, sensitive feelings, etc). In th...
Article
Product development was deeply modified by globalisation. New practises to ease remote collaborative work are expected. Many methods and tools were developed for this objective in a fragmented vision depending of the usage contexts. The computer supported cooperative work (CSCW) community defined tools dedicated to generic collaboration without spe...
Article
Product design development needs collaboration between different designers. A product is co-modelled by a team of designers at geographically distributed locations using a set of heterogeneous business tools such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) systems. However, existing collaborative environment support only a...
Article
The increasing competition and complexity of product design require the collaboration of experts with different skills and from many disciplines who often work in a distributed environment and do not use the same description for the same object. Every expert having his own formalisms and tools, integration and collaboration of the expert tools has...

Article
We describe a new geometric algorithm to map surfaces into a plane convex area. The mapping transformation is bijective; it redefines the whole surface as a unique bi-parametric patch. Thus this mapping provides a global parametrization of the surface. The surfaces are issued from industrial CAD software; they are usually described by a large numbe...
