ASME Journal of Mechanical Design Special Issue: Data-Driven Design (D3)

Published:

With the arrival of Cyber-Physical Systems or Internet of Things (IoT) era, the massive human- and machine-generated data can create unprecedented challenges and at the same time unmatched opportunities in advancing the theory, methods, tools and practice of Data-Driven Design (D3) for products, systems and services. By exploiting such huge, versatile and highly contextualized through-life data, design engineers can harness their organization’s competitive edge by uncovering patterns, novel insights and knowledge for D3. The aim of this special issue is to bring together original and archival articles that present significant contributions in advancing the D3 field. Examples of D3 topics of interest include (but are not limited to): ·...

Job Posting - Postdoctoral Researcher in Transdisciplinary Engineering Design Processes, University of Alberta, Canada

Published:

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the transdisciplinary research area of “Engineering Design Processes for Engineering Undergraduate/Graduate Education”. Background Today’s engineers need to master complex design spaces and are called upon to work in transdisciplinary teams in order to develop efficient solutions to interdisciplinary problems. Despite this new reality, engineering design curricula remain siloed to the various engineering disciplines and focused on teaching subject specific problem resolution approaches. As a result, engineering students graduating from different disciplines have no common basis from which to think holistically about...
