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…

Iterative value models generation in the engineering design process

Iterative value models generation in the engineering design process

Abstract Value models are increasingly discussed today as a means to frontload conceptual design activities in engineering design, with the final goal of reducing cost and rework associated with sub-optimal decisions made from a system perspective. However, there is no shared agreement in the research community about what a value…

Reverse Engineered Design Automation: Applying Knowledge Based Engineering Techniques to a Case of Automotive Fixtures Design Configuration

Reverse Engineered Design Automation: Applying Knowledge Based Engineering Techniques to a Case of Automotive Fixtures Design Configuration

Abstract In the production of automotive body components, fixtures are an important part of the ongoing work on geometrical assurance. The fixture is uniquely defined for each component, and the design and configuration of these are time-consuming and takes a lot of effort. The objective with this paper is to…

Key factors for STPs facilitating the establishment of an innovation-advising organization network to support SMEs in developing Industry 4.0 products/services

Key factors for STPs facilitating the establishment of an innovation-advising organization network to support SMEs in developing Industry 4.0 products/services

ABSTRACT This study explores the role of science and technology parks (STPs) as facilitators in the creation of an innovation-advising organization network (IAON) within the health, social welfare, and medical technology sector (health-tech). The background to this study is that more and more products using Industry 4.0 technology, i.e., robotics,…

How STPs can support the implementation of Industry 4.0-products in the health-tech sector

How STPs can support the implementation of Industry 4.0-products in the health-tech sector

ABSTRACT This study explores what role science and technology parks (STP) can play when aiming to increase knowledge regarding the implementation of products for the health, social welfare, and medical technology sector (health-tech), including Industry 4.0 technology-based products (products), on a national level in Sweden. Such products, have problems reaching…

WORK INTEGRATION SOCIAL ENTERPRISES: A TESTBED FOR CHALLENGE-BASED LEARNING?

WORK INTEGRATION SOCIAL ENTERPRISES: A TESTBED FOR CHALLENGE-BASED LEARNING?

ABSTRACT Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISE) are a particular enterprise form permeated by a so-called ‘double business idea’. Besides the commercial imperative of providing product and services, WISE offer employment and training opportunities for individuals considered less able to compete in mainstream labour markets. The paper argues that this multiple…

Modeling ‘ilities’ in early Product-Service Systems design

Modeling ‘ilities’ in early Product-Service Systems design

ABSTRACT Product-Service Systems, like all complex systems, are vulnerable to unpredictable environmental changes that can seriously undermine their ability to continuously deliver value to customers. The long-term consequences of volatile markets, unanticipated technologies, and unpredictable changes in society must be captured, modeled and communicated to decision makers since the earliest stages of…

Life cycle simulation to support cross-disciplinary decision making in early PSS design

Life cycle simulation to support cross-disciplinary decision making in early PSS design

ABSTRACT The development of early-stage simulation capabilities is a critical step in the quest for ‘frontloading’ early stage PSS design activities, reducing the cost and risk for rework associated with sub-optimal decisions. This paper describes how life cycle simulations, based on a Discrete Event approach, can be applied to support cross-disciplinary decision…

Key guidelines for designing integrated solutions to support development of marginalised societies

Key guidelines for designing integrated solutions to support development of marginalised societies

ABSTRACT Marginalised societies face a wide range of deprivations and constraints at individual, institutional, economic, and technological levels. To satisfy unmet or underserved needs of poor people living in these societies, it is essential to address all the relevant constraints in the target context through the design of integrated solutions.…

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

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…

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

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”…

Design and Poverty: A Review of Contexts, Roles of Poor People, and Methods

Design and Poverty: A Review of Contexts, Roles of Poor People, and Methods

ABSTRACT Design is essential to fulfil unmet or under-served needs of resource-poor societies, supporting their social and human development. A great deal of design research has been undertaken in such low resource settings, and is discussed under different names, such as ‘community development engineering’, ‘humanitarian engineering’, ‘appropriate technology’, ‘design for…

A Reverse Engineering Role-Play to Teach Systems Engineering Methods

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…

Most Influential Qualities in Creating Satisfaction Among the Users of Health Information Systems: Study in Seven European Union Countries

Most Influential Qualities in Creating Satisfaction Among the Users of Health Information Systems: Study in Seven European Union Countries

ABSTRACT Background: Several models suggest how the qualities of a product or service influence user satisfaction. Models such as the Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI), Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), and Delone and McLean Information Systems Success demonstrate those relations and have been used in the context of health information systems. Objective: This study…
