Abstract

Although testing is a value adding activity and improves confidence in design, lengthy physical testing in one phase can delay the product development process, because testing and design processes are closely intertwined. This study identifies that, due to long procurement times and lengthy physical tests, companies may have no choice but to redesign tasks before testing results are available in order to meet product delivery deadlines. This increases uncertainties therefore reduces confidence in design. This research proposes a model of integrated virtual and physical testing to support the testing and subsequent redesign phases of product development.

Special Interest Group (SIG)Modelling and Management of Engineering Processes

Modelling and Management of Engineering ProcessesThe MMEP Special Interest Group aims to support industry in understanding, modelling and running design processes by bringing together a community of design researchers and interacting with industry by identifying research challenges in MMEP and working together to resolve them. The SIG investigates strategies, approaches, methods, and tools for modelling, building up, optimising and managing design processes of complex engineering products. The SIG members work closely with industry and the...
