This paper presents a method for managing and modeling a product family as a configurable product. The method enables efficient management of a large number of product variants. The modeling is based on a recently proposed conceptualization of configuration domain, which is a synthesis and extension of the main approaches to configuration. The concepts of(More)
According the present thinking, a function based platform approach is most virtuous for configurable products. Although there are successful cases of utilising this type of platform in industry, success has often been only temporary. This is due that challenges set by long-term platform life cycle management has not been addressed adequately. Dynamic(More)
Geomagnetically induced currents (GICs) in technological conductor systems on the ground are a manifestation of space weather. The basic mechanism of the phenomenon is well understood. Ionospheric currents varying rapidly in time and space are the main cause of large GICs. The most significant events are characterised by a high global geomagnetic activity,(More)
This paper studies the specific Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) capabilities needed for the transformation of Engineered to Order (ETO) manufacturing towards Configure to Order business strategy. The material for the research comes from a project conducted with public private partnership. The four industrial companies that we studied engineer and/or(More)
[1] On 4 April 2000, a coronal mass ejection (CME) took place close to the western limb of the Sun. The shock front of the CME hit the Earth’s magnetosphere on 6 April. A strong interplanetary southward BZ event in the sheath region caused a magnetic storm that was the second strongest in the year 2000 if quantified by the peak of the Dst index. We have(More)
