Introducing value driven design in engineering education: teaching the use of value models in preliminary design

ABSTRACT Methods and approaches for teaching engineering disciplines are evolving to adapt to the needs of companies and society. Engineering Design is one of the areas most influenced by such changes and constantly striving to develop more effective and efficient strategies to prepare the soon-to-be engineers to face the challenges of a real working environment.

Multi-Criteria Decision Making for Sustainability and Value Assessment in Early PSS Design

Sustainability is a key innovation capability in the organization, yet it is difficult to “mix and match” sustainability targets with more traditional objectives—such as quality, time, cost, and performances—when designing and developing new products. Our latest paper titled “Multi-Criteria Decision Making for Sustainability and Value Assessment in Early PSS Design” proposes a model to guide […]

A Reverse Engineering Role-Play to Teach Systems Engineering Methods

ABSTRACT Students engaged in systems engineering education typically lack experience and understanding of the multidisciplinary complexity of systems engineering projects. Consequently, students struggle to understand the value, rationale, and usefulness of established systems engineering methods, often perceiving them as banal or trivial. The paper presents a learning activity based on a three-stage reverse engineering role-play […]

Interest in research

We typically do research in order to make an impact; better products, less material use, less environmental impact, higher value, lower cost etc. The solution space is wide and the knowledge generated is big. Still, it is interesting, and fun, to once-and-a-while have a look at how the articles are being downloaded or viewed. So, […]

Seminarie: Modelldriven produktutveckling

Sedan 2013 har BTH tillsammans med företagspartners drivit ett forskningsprojekt med fokus på modelldriven utveckling och beslutsstöd fokuserat på att stödja framtagningen av morgondagens hållbara produkt-tjänstelösningar. Projektet avslutas Mars 2019 och resultat börjar finnas tillgängliga. I samarbete med SIG-PM och Produktutvecklingsakademin höll projektet en resultatsession fokuserat på hur ett modellbaserat arbetssätt kan användas vid produktutveckling.
