Abstract
The automotive industry in Europe has been forced to develop new solutions for the vehicles in order to fulfill the emission standards set by the European Commission according to European Emission Standards (Euro). The latest, Euro 6, involves new demands on continuous audits of emissions during a vehicles lifecycle. The standards are legislated and without approval a manufacturer may lose its license.
Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to produce and recommend a solution for an industrialized method to implement PEMS measurements within the production. This should involve a technical concept solution, method for the handling of data and work descriptions as well as the distribution of responsibility. Complemented with process... (More)
The automotive industry in Europe has been forced to develop new solutions for the vehicles in order to fulfill the emission standards set by the European Commission according to European Emission Standards (Euro). The latest, Euro 6, involves new demands on continuous audits of emissions during a vehicles lifecycle. The standards are legislated and without approval a manufacturer may lose its license.
Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to produce and recommend a solution for an industrialized method to implement PEMS measurements within the production. This should involve a technical concept solution, method for the handling of data and work descriptions as well as the distribution of responsibility. Complemented with process descriptions and if possible a financial estimation of the project.
The analysis should eventuate in a recommendation of potential implementation. A procedure for measuring the emissions within area of the production line and include:
A technical method for testing and handling relevant information.
Process ownership responsibilities.
Method and process description for testing and deviation handling.
Estimation of investment cost related to the testing.
Method: To minimize the risk of influence the work will be divided into different phases. The first phase includes process mapping and descriptions to increase the understanding and visualize the differences between the processes. In extension the processes will be compared in matter of maturity in order to evaluate the potential to find a feasible flow. The evaluation will be followed by a conceptual assessment for different PEMS-solutions, which are developed in parallel.
The final phase will be to estimate the investment cost of the compiled solution.
Conclusion: According to Scania´s demands as well as technical requirements for a realistic approach for PEMS measurements has grounded in a conceptual method. The future concept is based on an external trailer solution where the interfaces for connection have been minimized to reduce time and complexity of usage. A feasible work process has been developed suitable for implementation as a coordinated flow parallel performed with the internal audit process. (Less)
