Data-driven design in concept development: systematic review and missed opportunities

Abstract The paper presents a systematic literature review investigating definitions, uses, and application of data-driven design in the concept development process. The analysis shows a predominance of the use of text mining techniques on social media and online reviews to identify customers’ needs, not exploiting the opportunity granted by the increased accessibility of IoT in cyber-physical systems.

Design of Product–Service Systems: Toward an Updated Discourse

Abstract The engineering rationale, composed of established logic for the design and development of products, has been confronted by a shift to a circular economy. Digitalization (e.g., Industry 4.0) enables transformation, but it also increases relational complexities in scope and number. In Product–Service Systems (PSSs), the combination of manufactured goods and services should be delivered […]

BTH PDRL at the DESIGN’20 online conference

The pandemic situation put an effective hold on the physical venue in Dubrovnik where the 16th International DESIGN conference was planned before the summer. Now the biannual DESIGN event organised by the Design Society were forced into an online version instead. Being a main forum to exchange experiences and lessons learned about engineering design from […]

PREDICT | 2020-

The purpose of PREDICT is to achieve increased accuracy in failure predictions by developing advanced material models, calibration techniques and effective finite element simulations, which can enable unambiguous and reliable formability predictions. Specially, simulation failure predictions of phenomena such as non-linear strain paths, effect of strain rate, anisotropy and presence of edge cracks will be […]

Applied simulation and internet of things for reduced waste during sheet metal forming

Together with Volvo Cars (Olofström), Telenor Connexion and Blue Science Part as coordinator, a research and application project has been carried out within the “Test arena Blekinge” with the aim of transforming theory into practically applicable knowledge in Industry 4.0. Industrial digitalisation has been going on since the 1990s, and with the development of the […]
