41108 Integrated Product Development for Industry 4.0



Product development creates a new technical product/system to fulfil specific needs and requirements. The resulting product design directly affects the entire product life cycle, such as manufacturing, maintenance and recycling. Thus, product development cannot happen in isolation but has to be part of an integrated product life cycle spanning approach. In this respect, Advanced Manufacturing creates new challenges but also offers new opportunities for such an integrated approach. Students learn to apply an integrated product development methodology, which allows them to systematically develop new technical products. A key focus is on identifying relevant socio-technical needs and requirements across the entire product life cycle. Student develop a product to deepen their learning experience.
