The process from identifying an innovative idea or a market need to making the right product available to customers is a time-consuming, costly and complex process. How can you ensure that the process is effective?
There are many answers to this question, but one key aspect is good cooperation between those involved in product development and those involved in production adaptation of products, so that the final product can be manufactured efficiently and to the right quality.
How can computer tools and digitalisation support this? And how could new ways of working and new technologies be implemented in your company?
Courses in this domain focus on approaches, tools and methods for production adaptation of products, and how this can be supported by digitalisation.
One example is a course on how companies can move towards a more model-based approach, where the computer models created early on in the product development process play a key role as information carriers. A set of either parallel or subsequent activities within the company and within the product life cycle, such as concept design, engineering, simulation, production adaptation, production, aftermarket and reuse.
