Models for Value-driven engineering design

ABSTRACT Nowadays, it is a great challenge to understand what models shall be used to iteratively translate customer desires into terms that are meaningful for engineering design decision-making. This paper proposes a framework illustrating the iterative evolution of model-based enablers for value during conceptual system design. The framework is developed from the analysis of four […]

A virtual turbine module demonstrator for aircraft engines

Aircraft engines are complex systems built by modules and components whose perfect coordination grants the safety and the performances of any aircraft. Bringing innovation in such a system is a complex and critical task that needs to be enabled by the right methods and technologies. The capability of virtually testing new ideas instead of recurring […]

International Conference on Engineering Design 2015

ICED was back to Italy this summer, 34 years after it kicked off in Rome in 1981. PDRL was well represented with 6 papers, covering a range of topics under the common denominator of supporting innovation and engineering activities “in real life”. See below for more info on our contributions to ICED’15.   MODEL BASED DECISION […]

Expanding Value Driven Design to meet Lean Product Service Development

ABSTRACT The paper presents a discussion about gaps and opportunities for cross-pollination between Value Driven Design and Lean Product Service Development to promote the use of value-driven method and tools since the preliminary design stages. In particular the paper discusses how methods and tools developed in Value Driven Design have the potential to be applied […]
