Abstract [en]

Design methods have been studied by researchers for decades. Academia considers their impact on industry to be insufficient. The objective of this research is to understand the use and impact of design methods in the context of a specific company, Volvo Car Corporation (VCC), by describing the behaviour of engineers in relation to methods, to assist in the future development of design methods and tools. We mainly concentrate on concept selection methods because of their relevance in this company. The data presented is the result of qualitative research carried out during 4 years at VCC, where the authors were located as researchers. The research shows that many methods are employed besides those with an academic name, that some in-company methods used contain improvements to methods researched by academia, that some modifications to academic methods lead to unreliable results, and that there is a lack of objectivity in method modification. For these reasons, the authors suggest further research on understanding the principles of successful and unreliable modification of concept selection methods

Abstract [en]

Drawing from experiences in automotive and aerospace development, the authors argue that it is time to radically progress our current understanding of how creativity could be introduced in organizations where factors like legal demands and contractual agreements severely restrict ‘outside-the-box' thinking, and where well-known creativity enablers such as trust, shared goals, and shared culture are becoming increasingly difficult to accomplish.

Abstract [en]

The development of complex mechanical structures such as a car body is an iterative process, alternating between design and analysis. Traditionally, these are made in different departments, making the loops between design and analysis slow and costly. This paper presents a method with accompanying software for the design engineer/draftsman to do preliminary mechanical analysis himself, which not only makes design loops shorter but also means they can be made in parallel. This speeds up the development process, while at the same time allowing exploration of more alternative solutions

Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to discuss how Knowledge Enabled Engineering, when combined with simulation methods is a development step for product development processes, engineering design methods and evaluation support systems. The paper opens the discussion on how these approaches, i.e. work methods, simulation support and Knowledge Enabled Engineering (KEE) methods affects best practice in engineering design (ED) by adding synthesis support to the already existing analysis support. In the presented work the authors discuss the actual state of industrial applications, with challenges and opportunities, at Volvo Car Corporation, automotive manufacturer, and Volvo Aero Corporation, jet engine component manufacturer, both operating in Sweden.

Abstract [en]

This thesis deals with the development of complex mechanical structures, from concept to detail design, as applied to car bodies. Efforts have been made to clarify how computer tools and analysis methods are used in product development in industry today. It has been found that the design and the analysis activities are separated, leading to product development that is simulation-verified rather than simulation-driven. This calls for better integration of computer support and analysis in the development process. Based on the above findings, a framework for car bodies is proposed, extending from concept to detail design. A property based model (PBM)/concept model, consisting of the following three sub- systems: beams, joints and panels, has been made to break down the requirements to sub-system level according to the design areas of the design engineers. Analysis tools have been developed and implemented, tailor-made according to the requirements at sub-system level. It has been shown that by providing design engineers with requirements according to their design area, and with corresponding analysis tools, it is possible for the design engineer to do preliminary analysis on their design in parallel with their normal design activity, leaving complete-vehicle a posteori simulation to the analysis experts. This increases the use of simulation in product development so that more solution alternatives are evaluated, leading to better design. The findings are corroborated by industrial studies, both at pilot level and full-scale. The implementation of simulation-driven design by designers is ongoing and increasing in projects at VCC. The implementation of the framework and tools has resulted in depended knowledge regarding interaction with industry and a contribution regarding how improvement of product development can be made.
