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 the design, so to identify sustainable […]

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 of a real working environment.

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 a three-stage reverse engineering role-play […]

Interest in research

We typically do research in order to make an impact; better products, less material use, less environmental impact, higher value, lower cost etc. The solution space is wide and the knowledge generated is big. Still, it is interesting, and fun, to once-and-a-while have a look at how the articles are being downloaded or viewed. So, […]

Beslutsstödsmiljö för produktutveckling

En liten glimt in i den beslutsstödsmiljö för produktutvecklande företag som utvecklas inom forskningsprojektet “model driven development and decision support” tillsammans med våra forskningspartners. Förmåga att redan i konceptfasen, innan man bygger produkterna, kunna förstå kostnad, värde samt miljöpotential mm över hela livscykeln skapar enorma möjligheter att prova olika scenarios och lösningar. Videovägg och touchscreen […]

PSS cost engineering: A model-based approach for concept design

ABSTRACT Manufacturing companies are increasingly moving toward delivering combinations of products and services to provide higher value to their customers. The development of such Product Service Systems (PSS) escalates in complexity when several products developed by different suppliers need to be integrated into a unique system. For first tier suppliers, it is a great challenge […]
