  1. 1. Interdisciplinary integration in complex product development : managerial implications of embedding software in manufactured goods

    Author : Niklas Adamsson; Margareta E. B. Norell Bergendahl; Martin Törngren; Annika Zika-Viktorsson; Pär Åhlström; KTH; []
    Keywords : Complex product development; interdisciplinary integration; technology fusion; systems engineering; new product development; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Incorporating electronics and software systems into manufactured goods is becoming very common in manufacturing companies. New technical functions, increased flexibility, and compensation for mechanical design weaknesses are some key drivers of this technological change in our everyday products. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechatronics engineering : New requirements on cross-functional integration

    Author : Niklas Adamsson; Margareta Norell Bergendahl; Eva Lovén; KTH; []
    Keywords : Mechatronics engineering; product development; multidisciplinary teamwork; organizational integration; cooperation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Several industrial sectors experience an increased reliance on mechatronic systems as electronics and software are being embedded into the traditional mechanical systems of these industries. Important challenges within mechatronics engineering comes from management of multi-disciplinary development project teams and the highly complex scope of problems, which in turn require extensive coordination and integration, both in terms of technical and organisational matters.

  3. 3. Two facets of Innovation in Engineering Education : The interplay of Student Learning and Curricula Design

    Author : Anders Berglund; Sofia Ritzén; Martin Edin Grimheden; Margareta Norell Bergendahl; William Ion; KTH; []
    Keywords : Engineering education; innovation; design; learning elements; student; change; Ingenjörsutbildning; innovation; design; lärandeelement; student; förändring;

    Abstract : This thesis covers two main perspectives ofinnovation; first, innovation is regarded as an outcome-related mechanism wherelearning is expressed through artefact presentations at the end of adevelopment process; second, innovation comprises a change mechanism in theprocess of student learning, influencing educators to reconsider new methods andpractices. Building on qualitative data from engineering design courses, theaim has been to explore how learning elements in engineering educationinfluence students during early-phase innovation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Decision making in innovation : understanding selection and prioritizaiton of development projects

    Author : Ernesto Gutiérrez; Margareta Norell Bergendahl; KTH; []
    Keywords : decision making; innovation; product development; project selection; project portfolio management; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis has its origin in empirical evidence. Some Swedish companies claimed that despite having plenty of proposals for developing new products, they experienced problems when choosing from all those alternatives. READ MORE

  5. 5. User Consideration in Early Stages of Product Development : Theories and Methods

    Author : Jenny Janhager; Margareta Norell Bergendahl; MariAnne Karlsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering design; Man-machine interaction; product development method; scenario technique; technical process; user; Konstruktionsteknik; Construction engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Traditional design theories have focused on technical functions and more or less disregard a product’s user involvement. The existing methods of ergonomic designare mostly intended for analysis activities. There is a need for new dynamic methods that focus on user-product interactions. READ MORE
