Discuss about the IOP Conference Series for Materials Science.
Nissan utilises a program known as V-3P which is value up for product, process and program innovation, which has enabled them to win against their automobile competitors. The V-3P follows two goals which are firstly to bring new vehicles in the market at a faster rate and secondly to make sure that the quality of the product is increased.
The V-3P program is the founded from the Product Lifecycle management technology from Siemens PLM Software (Edge 2016). This software is based on the Know-How-CAD system which means that knowledge is captured and reused by the company and involves the entire team and all the individuals in the company, to make them efficient and innovative, ranging from design engineers to suppliers.
To ensure that the system is implemented properly, daily feedbacks from the team has to be taken to understand the work progress and also to suggest any changes that might be needed in the system.
It is mandatory that the employees produce the products on time and of good quality, but it should also be informed that cost efficient products are made so that the company can incur savings.
Nissan should bring their products quicker into the market with the help of the new software that they have adopted and also ensure that no extra pressure is given to the employees in doing so. Nissan should make full use of the software so that good quality products are delivered into the market.
The company would give proper training sessions about the new software to its employees so that they can understand how to properly use it and hence make good use of it in the improvement process and to bring new and quick innovative products into the market.
Proper follow-up should be done to measure the performance level of the system and the employees using the system. The follow-up and feedbacks from the employees would help in understanding the drawbacks that comes with this system so that it can be rectified for future use. Another way the system can be measured is by noting the number of problems that would be reported by the vehicle users after it has been released in the market.
Nissan will manage the records and information of the system through the software which is Teamcenter (Krastyaninov and Khusainov 2016). This software consists of all the updated information and data about the vehicles which can be derived from a single source. The software Teamcenter helps the company to make the information of the vehicles available to all teams if the company for recordkeeping.
