Article
Many companies have been reorganizing from a sequential to an integrated path known as simultaneous engineering, which aims to reduce development time and costs. The main problem during technology and product development is the integration of the design and manufacturing areas in the product development phase. This paper proposes a model to improve...
Article
The development of mechatronic products is complex because it deals with the interaction between different domains. In a literature review, the absence of a method capable of integrating the functional view of a mechatronic product into a single model was observed. This article aims to develop a functional modeling method to aid the conceptual desi...
Article
Over the past 20 years, undergraduate railway engineering education has been on the rise in Brazil. However, a long period without investments in the sector led to the absence of up-to-date material in Portuguese to back up the teaching of specific courses in the program. To help bring the program up to speed, this work presents the development of...

Selecting the most suited manufacturing process for a specific product, as well as optimizing the design regarding manufacture and assembly, is actions that will directly impact on cost and quality, aiming at finding the best match between the product’s functional requirements and the attributes of the processes, and it should be carried out in the...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents a design procedure based on integration of the solution variants method and axiomatic design as choice criteria during the conceptual design phase. In order to evaluate the design procedure was choice a real problem related to the transmission system of a vertical twin screw head applied to a desktop experimental 3D printer. The...
Article
Full-text available
Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) is used in product design as a systematic analysis tool that aims to identify and evaluate potential failure modes, their causes and effects. However, vital information for FMEA, such as consumer needs and expert opinions, is often uncertain or vague in the product design phase. On the other hand, fuzzy log...

The design of casting components is a complex activity, which is usually based on guidelines scattered in the literature, or based on the designer’s accumulated experience. A single failure in the casting process selection can increase design and production time and, in critical cases, result in a collapse of the manufacturing and assembly of compo...
Article
Product development with a high potential for materials recycling is a way to contribute to the conservation of natural resources. Therefore, issues such as product reuse, remanufacturing and reprocessing must be considered during the product design stage. This paper proposes a diagnostic tool to evaluate product recyclability to be applied during...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, an overview of the history of education in railway and metro engineering in Brazil is presented, including its beginnings, its apogee, its near extinction, and its return at the beginning of the 21st century. The trajectory of the Brazilian professional education began with the implementation of small railway workshops located along...
Article
Modularity has played an important role in providing a variety of products, allowing companies to deliver new technologies and occupy new markets. However, its potential is not fully addressed in the early stages of the product development process. In this paper, we present a method for transforming technology roadmap outputs into a module-based pl...
Article
Full-text available
The Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus Linnaeus) is a plant used as phytotherapic medicine, which is a growing segment in Brazil. Due to the demand increase, the processing method does not meet the market expectations, demonstrating the requirement for new processes and equipment. Currently small agriculturists extract the product using an a...
Article
Full-text available
This paper deals with the definition of interface alternatives during the development of modular products. Interfaces could be seen as the boundary between modules, as well the existing interactions with the surrounding environment and possible users. In order to carry out interface design, a procedure to aid in the conception of interface alternat...
Article
Full-text available
Materials selection in product development is an important task. The wrong choice of material can increase the cost of the product and/or lead to failure in the field. Therefore, during the development of a product, a suitable material must be selected based on product requirements and materials properties. This paper proposes a methodology for mat...
Chapter
Full-text available
This paper describes a design methodology to develop interfaces for modular products. Interface should be understood as the boundary among two or more product modules. Interfaces are essential to guarantee a proper exchange of materials, energies and information among modules also playing an important role in product standardization and module inte...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents an evolutionary concept developed as part of a specific collaborative engineering platform to support the commercialization of engineering services. This concept establishes a pattern for continuously adapting the platform to a variety of situations and specific user needs, product characteristics and industrial sectors. The AEC...
