Operational Excellence in Engineering
While an increasing number of production processes are automated within the context of Industry 4.0, engineering processes, relevant for innovation and competitive advantages, still include activities which are primarily performed by humans. Which process management organizes such engineering processes in a reproducible, comparable, and complete form? How to comprehensive design the activities for employees? How to build a reusable process architecture which allows for practical and standard-compliant execution by humans? We answer these questions with a specific example for integration of process management (Method Park Stages) and workflow tools (IBM RTC, Jira) and demonstrate which steps can be reasonably automated in creative engineering processes, too.
