The ability to effectively deliver new values to the market; innovation, is a challenge on global scale for companies today.
The research at PDRL aims at targeting early development stages of product development by use of a model based engineering approach with simulation at the core.
The research is particularly oriented towards early development, and questions of how to best identify, communicate, utilize, and re-use knowledge about, for example, user needs and product usage, are of high interest together with aspects of team based innovation, value creation and engineering optimisation.
Creating the ability to run simulation driven design of new sustainable solutions by using a model based approach is a key in order to support global product development where sustainable lifecycle solutions; product-service systems is the goal.
The applied research efforts provide new work procedures, methods and tools as well as new insights that support and enable product development improvements for our partners, while the research at the same time is disseminated in the proper academic channels to ensure quality control.
Below are our main research areas within mechanical engineering.
