Stanford ME310 project wraps up with EXPE – Online

ReGlove, a circular solution for recycling and remanufacturing Personal Protective Equipment in the form of single-use gloves made from a special form of Polyvinyl alcohol. The solutions consist of machines that are designed to facilitate the loop from cleaning and sterilizing used material to a remanufacturing plant, where the material, in liquid form, is molded […]

The Model-Driven Decision Arena: Augmented Decision-Making for Product-Service Systems Design

Abstract The shift towards Product-Service Systems (PSS) stresses the need to embed new and unique capabilities in Decision Support Systems, with the aim of helping the engineering team in handling the pool of information and knowledge available during decision events. Emerging from a multiple case study in the Swedish manufacturing industry, this paper describes the […]

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 […]

Digital produktutveckling för en hållbar framtid

Det enda vi har runt oss som inte är medvetet utvecklat är naturen – allt annat är utvecklat av människans hand. Produktutveckling är den medvetna processen att skapa de ting vi använder oss av i vår vardag. Bilar, flygplan, mjölkkartonger, allt är produktutvecklat. Professor Tobias Larsson forskar inom produktutveckling och leder profilen kring modelldriven produkt-tjänsteutveckling […]

Formula Infinity – Ingenjörskonst är för viktigt för att inte spelas

Formula Infinity är ett lärosätesövergripande tvärvetenskapligt projekt, unikt i sitt slag genom sin koppling till esport och ungdomskultur. Visionen är att skapa ett pedagogiskt bilspel där man virtuellt bygger och tävlar med egna racerbilar och lär sig teknik. BTH PDRL medverkar i framtagandet av “Formula Infinity” tillsammans med 10 andra högskolor i Sverige. Formula Infinity […]

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 […]

Tjejer testar CAD under inspirationsdagen inom teknik

I samarbete med Womengineering (http://womengineer.org/) bjöd BTH in unga tjejer till ”Introduce a Girl to Engineering” (IGE) -dagen (http://www.igeday.com/) där vi visade våra tekniska utbildningar och skapade ett gränssnitt mot att vara ingenjör, genom att tjejer som är nyfikna på teknik fick träffa studenter och lärare samt även fick chansen att testa på ingenjörsarbete. Sofie […]
