Project description

Today’s industry is confronted with the complexity of interconnected cyber-physical industrial product-service-consumption-production systems. There is a particular need for interdisciplinary design strategies, methods and best practices to get new insights into the involved transformation processes and digital product architecture. This project want to focus on an integral applied research: in the domain of design of new digital design and production processes; design for personalized, changing and scalable manufacturing systems; and co-creation strategies for iterative and advanced intertwined design-make-evaluation methods.

Special attention is paid to the implementation of these stratgies in the context of the make industry 4.0 in close collaboration with local industry and international research groups.
