Data-driven value assessment of packaging solutions

ABSTRACT Research in Product Service Systems design increasingly focuses on how to develop ‘capabilities’ for assessing the value of solutions already in  a design project fuzzy front end. A datadriven approach shall then guide engineers in the process of identifying what to develop, and not merely to verify if a solution meets (or not) performance requirements. This process […]

Framework for Simulation-Driven Design of Stamping Dies Considering Elastic Die and Press Deformations

ABSTRACT Sheet metal forming (SMF) simulations are used extensively throughout the development phase of industrial stamping dies. In these SMF simulations, the die and press are normally considered as rigid. Previous research has however shown that elastic deformation in these parts has a significant negative impact on process performance. This paper demonstrates methods for counteracting […]

Simulation-driven design, Projects 2017

Modelling and simulation is today a natural part of engineering design in businesses of all types and sizes. However, transition from simulation as primary a tool for verifying solutions that are already decided upon towards use of simulation to stimulate creation of new concepts and provide guidance towards more optimized designs, especially in early development […]

New course: MT2549 Simulation-driven design

This autumn we’ll offer a new course for our master students, Simulation-driven design. In a simulation-driven design (SDD) process, decisions related to the behavior and the performance of the design are significantly supported by computer-based product modelling and simulation. Rather than just verifying solutions that are already decided upon, SDD support dialogues with customers, stimulate […]

Value-driven simulation: thinking together through simulation in early engineering design

ABSTRACT The topic of ‘design for value’ has lately attracted a great deal of attention within the engineering design community. ‘Predicting’ the value of a future solution is however difficult, especially in early design phases. Modelling and simulation is believed to be able to support this challenging task. A simulation process for value-driven engineering design […]

Experimenting the use of Value Models as Boundary Objects in Conceptual PSS Design

ABSTRACT The paper presents the results of experimental activities aiming at investigating the role of ‘value models’ as ‘boundary objects’ that facilitate cross-functional discussions in the PSS conceptual design phase. The experiment featured 6 separate sessions involving a total of 22 students in the final year of three different Master Programmes. In the sessions participants […]
