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. […]

Development of a Circularity Impact and Failure Analysis: Obsolescence and Recyclability Integration

Abstract: The application of the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) has been an established practice in systems engineering and engineering design for some decades. The benefit of applying FMEA is to raise engineers’ awareness of potential risks related to a specific design configuration so that corrective actions can be preventively prioritized to avoid potential […]

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 […]
