Network-based Modeling and Analysis in Design - Call for a Thematic Collection of Articles for the Design Science Journal

Published:

Network-based Modeling and Analysis in Design -  Call for a Thematic Collection of Articles  for the Design Science Journal Network-based modeling and analysis is an emerging approach in addressing complex relations in product and system designs and their interaction with broader product ecosystems. Networks are effective in modeling the interconnectivity and interdependency among individual entities in a complex system, either artifacts such as physical components or humans such as users and designers. This thematic collection aims to explore the use of network-based approaches for design from multiple perspectives,...

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...

MMEP workshop - Application and adaptation of design methods in industry

Published:

Wednesday, 21 September 2016 - Thursday, 22 September 2016, KIT Karlsruhe, DE Our next workshop will be hosted by KIT on the 21st and 22nd of September in Karlsruhe. We will pick up the topic of application and adaptation of design methods in industry, which we already addressed during DESING’16 in Cavtat. The feedback from workshop participants from industry and academia encouraged us to continue working on this topic. Prof. Albers and his group from KIT in Karlsruhe have put a very interesting program together for us with a day of industry presentation and a second day of discussion amongst the academic contributors. We are picking up on two debates that take place in the moment: the role of methods in the design processes and the...
