      Leader of the User Centred Product Design research group.

      Research interest

      Dan Högberg's research is about making user-centred information, e.g. ergonomics knowledge, relevant and easily available to product designers and engineers. These roles often need design methods and tools that facilitates the consideration of user aspects, along with other product/system requirements, in the complex time and budget constrained product realisation process. Central in Dan's research is digital human modelling (DHM) and how such technology can contribute in supporting designers and engineers to consider ergonomics/human factors proactively at virtual stages of the design process. Dan also conducts research in how sensors integrated into textiles can be used to evaluate ergonomics, including how the collected data can improve simulations in the virtual world.

      Dan is leader of the User Centred Product Design (UCPD) research group at University of Skövde. UCPD is one of several research groups within the research specialisation Virtual Engineering at the School of Engineering Science. The group's research is to a large extent carried out in close cooperation with industrial partners. UCPD has currently four focus areas: digital human modelling, anthropometry, industrial information design, and applications of smart textiles.

      Ongoing projects

      Virtual Factories of the Future

      Virtual factories with knowledge-driven optimization (VF-KDO) is an eight-year research profile that is being coordinated by the University of Skövde. Research within this profile aims to help strengthen the competitiveness of Swedish industry.

      October 2018 - September 2026 Virtual Engineering

      PLENUM

      The ongoing electrification of the automotive industry will initially lack competence, it is new knowledge that is required to take the automotive industry to the next phase. According to the EC, the loss of skills within the battery cell plants is estimated to be up to 800,000 people until 2025. And even the industry would have enough people, the factories are not yet built, which makes it impossible to train the person on site.
