Towards a Platform Approach Supporting the Interface Between Technology - and Product Development
2016 (English)In: Proceedings of the DESIGN 2016 14th International Design Conference, Dubrovnik, May 16-19, 2016. / [ed] Marjanović, D., Štorga, M., Pavković, N., Bojčetić, N., Škec, S., The Design Society, 2016, 1987-1996 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The separation of technology development (TD) and product development (PD) is adding to the challenge that suppliers face. They are to conduct long term TD and at the same time tailor products when the order arrives. This paper proposes a platform approach in order to describe some conceptual knowledge. An example from the automotive business where early simulations of concepts are performed during TD is presented. The focus is on how these simulations can support the transfer of knowledge from TD to PD and how they are to be described in order to communicate the technology’s ability to adapt.
