ICED 15
Special Interest Group (SIG)

Modelling and Management of Engineering Processes

Interest: Research

Agenda

Engineering processes are the "glue" that hold the activities within product development and design together. Engineering processes structure these tasks appropriately and ensure the correct and timely use of the appropriate approaches & procedures, methods, data, and tools in order to improve the design process, improve products and services, and properly document product development, processes and the products themselves. It is the aim of this group to contribute to a smart and smooth definition, application, and navigation of Engineering Processes within the scope described above.

Focus

Strategies, approaches, methods, and tools for modelling of, building up, for optimising of, and for managing dynamically engineering processes will be investigated within this SIG.

Within the next meetings of the SIG it is planned to discuss and improve the research agenda and MMEP research roadmap. We want to identify topics which are currently not adressed.
All members are encouraged to engage in this process and to shape this SIG.

Mode of operation

Goals for the near future
- enlarge our literature data-base providing an overview about most relevant literature in our area (using Mendeley)
- create an overview ("blackboard") about ongoing research projects in our SIG, and active researchers
- platform for exchange of MSc and PhD-students between members
- publish review papers

Mid-term goals
- Active exchange between industrial and academic members

Interaction via:
- e-mail
- LinkedIn discussion group "MMEP"
- MMEP Workshops and conferences
- web-seminars

Deliverables and benefits for our members:
- networking (personal meetings, internships, etc.)
- overview about ongoing research projects in our area
- visibility of your work in the right context
- focussed feedback on your work
- joint publications
- joint research proposals
- events
- web-seminars presenting research highlights from the Design Society's main conferences
- exchange between industry and academia
