Questions related to Product Design and Development
As we know in this pandemic, everything seems quite hard to control. I hope the researches could discuss and share their thoughts for researching at this time. Especially related in Industrial Engineering.
Research strategies in many institutions require to carefully investigating the future trends in disciplines. Other plans such as hiring researchers, establishing new labs, … are based on the how we look to the future of research and our understanding what others working in. I hope that researchers discuss this important issue and exchange the related experiences and knowledge.
The focus would be to potentially use DSM to explore the dependencies and interactions between subsystems, where a subsystem may have several technology options available for Product Design/Development (PD).
I am at Department of Industrial Product Design and we have studying on technology effect on product and designer. If you have any field similar to us we can connect and do some survey or project together.
Am currently looking for new research areas in the Engineering management field, at the moment am considering lean and green engineering, but would appreciate any additions or new area of opening.
Our research is something like what we had when our Forefathers were involved in developing the products that we have in our corporate methods for acquiring ways and means that foster the development of something that must become a thing that will be novel, such as, that invented by Alan Mathison Turing. We will begin our research in the manner of Turing who did solve the Enigma problem, associated with mechanical components of the Enigma Machine.
Unfortunately, we must protect our resources where there is some doubt regarding how we can obtain the types of services that will enable all of us to benefit from our developments in this genre of novelty.
Writing my thesis on "Right Brained" Project Management. Currently reading "Good to Great" by Jim Collins and "Unmanaging" by Theodore Taptiklis. I'm very intrigued by the "Hedgehog Concept." Will include many Daniel H. Pink books, Malcolm Gladwell, "Freakonomics and more! I have been interviewing many project managers. I hope to create a product, system, and service!
The product may be a "Play book" the system may be a "call managing system" like heat call manager or "salesforce" "efficy" Not sure yet. The service will be a PM with a heavy focus on "CRS."
There may be some mention of differences between Waterfall and Agile PM Methodologies.
Wondering about Enterprise Performance Perspectives (such as postulated by BSC), each Perspective reveals an expectation expressed by stakeholders and managers, and it also may regard such as an "aggregation" of Performance Indicators(PI).
1. Please, what is your point of view about different expectations about PI values, in several Perspectives, keeping in mind the same organization and collect moment?
2. This situation would not be a conflicting aspect, revealing a conflict in Perspectives's Definition previously ?
For instance, in this hypothetical scenario:
- Perspective-A, with PI-1 expected LOW;
- Perspective-B, with PI-1 too, but expected HIGH;
- Perspective-C, with PI-1 too, but expected not present.
There is a short explanation in media about these 4 levels yet the meaning is still ambiguous; Is there any reference or introduction of the quattro in product design?
For me, I am studying on China products attitude, and will develop a scale, but there are some questions about EFA and CFA. so I need to study some related files. please recommend related information！ thanks！
As digital techniques, methods, process play a vital in production technology for creating a product, virtual product creation helps to digitalized the complete product creation process.
I have two different commercial products- one a viscous fluid, and the other a structured semi-solid but their fingerprint on rheology is very similar, is this possible?
Can oscillatory tests (amplitude sweeps and frequency sweeps) be used to differentiate between two commercial products? Can these tests be used to conclude that a product in development is the same as a commercial product by using rheology? Thanks in advance
I am doing a research on Lead User Method case studies. And I found the term "Stakeholder Theory" appears to be in similar to the Lead User Method.
I wonder whether if we can assume they are in similarity in term of the input and outcome, but the process is different?
- I want to know specifically of problems in a tabloid chair for left-handed users and I want to know what are the solutions that have been done to overcome this problem for the tabloid chair for those left-handed users. The new design of tabloid chair for left-handed
the concept of morphological analysis is central to language studies, how can we use it with respect to the design of new types of products and communications, overcoming the classic approach of structuralism semiotics
I am associated with a research work related to product-line strategies of fast-moving consumer goods in Nepal and South Asia. I will appreciate your support in advising good works in this topic.
The Samsung SUR 40 is a multitouch device. It is mounted on a table and supports various kinds of interactions. We are planning to develop an application for product service design for this device. The problem is that most of the applications for this system are aiming at promotion of products not of their development.
I am curious on what measurements have been used for evaluating the quality of new product ideas. Feasibility, novelty and customer benefit are often used as dimensions for measuring the quality of a new product idea, but there should be more.
Links for literature is appreciated!
I want to perform reverse engineer on a compiled and running *.apk file, but could not find the right way to do it, can anyone help me to guide.
I am working on a design method based on CBR and TRIZ, and I want to improve the efficiency of cases searching, then what should I do?
There is a wide range of social media/Web 2.0 tools available on the market. Social media tools seem to be more promising in product design and development contexts in order to keep pace with ever changing trends and styles. Where do you use (or see major benefits of) these tools?
During the different stages of npd decisions on outsourcing are made based on level of availability of data at that stage. With reference to data i.e. standard data, evaluation and detailed data (differentiated by Pahl et al. 2007, p. 133) how is decision-making differentiated at strategic, tactical and operational level
In this session, it is required to invoke an important issue from my point of view. This issue is the utilization efficiency of the products. Is the utilization efficiency systematically taken into consideration in the conception, design and manufacturing phases of a product?
I give examples. the private car and the water tap. I believe in their present form, they have very low utilization efficiency. I think many products must be reconcepted and redesigned to increase the utilization efficiency and save our depleted and limited resources.
Well-fitted garments are significant for the comfort of a human being. Adequate fitting requirements are ensured by appropriate garment pattern design and specific physical and mechanical properties of textiles. This is especially important for people with paraplegia state, which is characterized by the immobility of lower body limbs. The movements of people with paraplegia are limited to movements that can be carried out in a sitting position in a wheelchair. Therefore, their clothes need to be adapted in a way that they provide comfort when wearing garments and that they do not cause additional health problems. We are looking for experiences related to the development of parametric body models in a sitting position to be used for construction and visualisation of different types of garments.
Since few years the work on Fully Depleted SOI (FDSOI) device technology have been interestingly increased due to few Semiconductor Companies believed to have a reliable and cost-effective production with FDSOI in compare with FinFETs/bulk-CMOS (e.g. ST-Mircoelectronics co. in conjunction with CMP is already in production phase of FDSOI tech.).
1. So, if anyone could suggest the freely available predictive technology model (PTM) and/or Product Design Kit (PDK) either charge or surface potential based ; will be highly appreciable.
2. Is it even possible to have "charge-based" SOI/PD-SOI/FD-SOI technology models. Or all the companies are using "surface potential - based" such as PSP based models.
In human factors and ergonomics, for example, identified trends include usability, universal design, user-centered design, collaborative design, trans-cultural design, customer-centered design and experience-based design. Within these trends / categories many methods can be classified.
Engineers often like to use "best practices" (data, information, knowledge, wisdom) during product development. Some of the data/information come from their experiences working on the job. Others (best practices) are derived from analytical, functional, logical or physical phenomena.
There is a difference between invention (educational research leading to new knowledge) and innovation (application of the knowledge for socio-economic benefit). I want to build a development model/process that brings these two worlds together.
The often repeated and cited claim is that 80% of a product's environmental impact over its life cycle is determined during the design phase (with the connected assumption that that 80% is within the power of the designer to control). But where did this claim originate, and what is the actual empirical evidence, both for the percentage of the impact determined by decisions in the design phase, and for the percentage that is actually within the power of a designer to influence?
