Raising Value and Sustainability awareness for critical materials: a serious game for the aerospace sector

Abstract Aviation strives today to include environmental and social considerations as drivers for decision making in design. This paper proposes a serious game to raise awareness of the value and cost implications of being ‘sustainability compliant’ when developing aerospace sub-systems and components. After describing the development of the game, from needfinding to prototyping and testing, […]

Success factors when implementing innovation teams

Abstract This research explores the success factors of the research-based process for creating high-performing innovation teams, called the CIT-process. This paper is part of a study through which problems in the implementation of high-performing innovation teams were identified (Johnsson et al., 2019) when being used by innovation management practitioners (practitioners). The CIT-process is a five-step […]

Data analysis method supporting cause and effect studies in product-service system development

Abstract A data analysis method aiming to support cause and effect analysis in design exploration studies is presented. The method clusters and aggregates effects of multiple design variables based on the structural hierarchy of the evaluated system. The resulting dataset is intended as input to a visualization construct based on colour-coding CAD models. The proposed […]

A framework for data-driven design in a product innovation process: data analysis and visualisation for model-based decision making

ABSTRACT: The paper presents a four-layer framework for the application of data-driven design in a product innovation process. The framework builds on the Knowledge Value Stream and on the Product Value Streams of a product innovation process and indicates how data-driven activities shall be structured and organised in relation to the different phases of a […]

Image-Based Localization System

Abstract The position of a vehicle is essential for navigation of the vehicle along the desired path without a human interference. A good positioning system should have both good positioning accuracy and reliability. Global Positioning System (GPS) employed for navigation in a vehicle may lose significant power due to signal attenuation caused by construction buildings […]

Using models as boundary objects in early design negotiations: analysis and implications for decision support systems

Abstract One common strategy to include more downstream lifecycle dimensions in early design is to enrich modelling and simulation techniques embedded in decision support systems. However, downstream dimensions are difficult to trade against more traditional engineering objectives. This research studied through individual interviews how six disciplines use models to negotiate design trade-offs. References to models […]
