To be able to use the experience data from previous design processes in the current situation, similarity matching and weighting is used. Exponential smoothing is used to calculate the time according to the weights. A network graph method, based on PERT serves as a basis of the graphical and mathematical representation.
15.-17.09.2010 The series of bi-annual Workshops on Integrated Product Development (IPD) is organised by the Chair of Information Technologies in Mechanical Engineering at the Otto-von-Guericke University, Magdeburg, Germany (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sándor Vajna). The IPD Workshops are events endorsed by the Design Society. According to the IPD philosphy, the 8th IPD workshop in 2010 again provides many issues to discuss in the field of product development: - Human aspects of IPD: Education and Training;...
