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

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…

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

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…

Success factors when implementing innovation teams

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).…

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

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…

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

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…

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

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…

Measuring Experiential Learning: An Approach Based on Lessons Learned Mapping

Measuring Experiential Learning: An Approach Based on Lessons Learned Mapping

Abstract: Fostering ‘experiential learning’ in real-life situations is a critical task for engineering educators when creating constructively aligned learning activities. The paper proposes an approach to measure the students’ perception of learning in Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate activities conducted outside the classroom. The approach is based on the opportunity of gathering and analyzing…

Integration of value and sustainability assessment in design space exploration by machine learning: an aerospace application

Integration of value and sustainability assessment in design space exploration by machine learning: an aerospace application

Abstract: The use of decision-making models in the early stages of the development of complex products and technologies is a well-established practice in industry. Engineers rely on well-established statistical and mathematical models to explore the feasible design space and make early decisions on future design configurations. At the same time,…

A hybrid data- and model-based approach to process monitoring and control in sheet metal forming

A hybrid data- and model-based approach to process monitoring and control in sheet metal forming

Abstract The ability to predict and control the outcome of the sheet metal forming process demands holistic knowledge of the product/process parameter influences and their contribution in shaping the output product quality. Recent improvements in the ability to harvest in-line production data and the increased capability to understand complex process…

Resource-Limited Societies, Integrated Design Solutions, and Stakeholder Input

Resource-Limited Societies, Integrated Design Solutions, and Stakeholder Input

Abstract Poverty is a multidimensional issue, characterized by deprivations and constraints at the individual, institutional, economic, and technological level. To satisfy the unmet or underserved needs of people living in poverty, the relevant constraints in the target context must be addressed via integrated design solutions. Although previous studies in this…

Supporting Early Stage Set-Based Concurrent Engineering with Value Driven Design

Supporting Early Stage Set-Based Concurrent Engineering with Value Driven Design

Abstract Set-Based Concurrent Engineering is commonly adopted to drive the development of complex products and systems. However, its application requires design information about a future product that is often not mature enough in the early design stages, and that it is not encompassing a service and lifecycle- oriented perspective. There…

Value Driven Design revisited: emerging modelling concepts and applications

Value Driven Design revisited: emerging modelling concepts and applications

Abstract Extended product warranties, leasing, and pay-per-use schemes are few examples of how manufacturing companies are shifting their focus from selling products to offering “solutions”, combining products and services to maximise customer value. The idea of optimising a system towards the best ‘value’ is both "intuitive and sensible", and processes…

STPs’ role as facilitators when innovation-advising organizations develop a common quality-assured innovation advising process

STPs’ role as facilitators when innovation-advising organizations develop a common quality-assured innovation advising process

Abstract This study explores science and technology parks’ (STP) role as facilitators when an innovation advising organization network (IAON) within the health, social welfare, and medical technology sector (health-tech) develops a quality-assured innovation advising process (QAIP). The background is that more and more products using Industry 4.0 technology are being…

Problems when creating innovation teams

Problems when creating innovation teams

Abstract This research explores problems occurring when practitioners use a research-based methodology regarding how to create high-performing innovation teams, namely the CIT-process, which has not been used by practitioners before. The CIT-process is recommended to be used prior to the ideation phase, which otherwise is considered to be the first…

A modified johnson-cook model for ferritic-pearlitic steel in dynamic strain aging regime

A modified johnson-cook model for ferritic-pearlitic steel in dynamic strain aging regime

Abstract In this study, the flow stress behavior of ferritic-pearlitic steel (C45E steel) is investigated through isothermal compression testing at different strain rates (1 s-1, 5 s-1, and 60 s-1) and temperatures ranging from 200 to 700 °C. The stress-strain curves obtained from experimental testing were post-processed to obtain true…
