Professor

Professor Tobias LarssonProfessor Tobias C. Larsson (TCL), born 1972, got his PhD at Luleå University of Technology in 2001 within the area of simulation driven design within a product development context. The applications were within automotive, and high-speed train sector. Special emphasis was on multi-body dynamics and simulation driven design within a product development context.

The core of today is within Product-Service Systems Innovation where the focus is on developing methods and tools for engineering product development and simulation applications in industrial settings to support development of sustainable product-service systems (PSS) that should create value on the market. PSS puts the focus on the functional aspects of the development and drives the usually separated product and service development teams into a more concurrent way of working to ensure delivery of a life-cycle function. Value modelling and simulation, knowledge management, and innovation performance metrics when developing PSS is of extra interest in the research.

TCL focus product-service system innovation, product development, engineering design and knowledge engineering principles in a design research quest to support the progress towards an "engineered sustainable future".

TCL is currently supervising 12 PhD students and has examined several PhD's (20) and licentiate (21) degrees. He has contributed in over 100 peer-reviewed publications within his research area. TCL has initiated and finalized several research projects. Currently leading the BTH KKS research profile "Model Driven Development and Decision Support". TCL was the main person behind the creation of the Faste Laboratory, a VINN Excellence Centre within product-service systems. He is co-founder of the Design for Wellbeing framework, a joint research project together with Stanford University, USA, and Hosei University, Japan, and have taken part in several European Union projects within aerospace sector (VIVACE 2004-2007, CRESCENDO 2009-2012).

Product-Service Systems
Product Development
Innovation Engineering
Associate Professor

Marco Bertoni has experience from European FP6 and FP7 research projects in the domain of aerospace, working closely with industrial companies in the topics of Product Service System (PSS) design, Value Driven Design (VDD) and enterprise collaboration.

The research objective is to understand how knowledge form the later phases of a system lifecycle (about how the product is manufactured, operated, maintained, upgraded, remanufactured or recycled) can be made available and structured in models to support decision making activities during the preliminary design.

The findings from the research work relate to: 1) the engineering need for visualizing “technical performances” and “in-service” information during preliminary design, 2) decision making models that use value to guide early concept selection activities, and 3) the methodological and technological enablers for value visualization and value-driven decision support.

Assistant Professor

Johan Wall (JWL) is assistant professor and deputy head at the department of Mechanical Engineering.

JWL’s research focus is the field of simulation-driven design. The overarching challenge is how simulation support can be developed, implemented and integrated into the product innovation process and thereby radically changing the economics of experimentation. This change enables a possibility to significantly increase experimentation and thereby improving the organisations ability to make well informed design decisions.

JWL’s teaching efforts includes university courses at basic and advanced level, mainly with analysis focus, such as machine elements, computational engineering, and optimisation.
