KK-stiftelsen satsar vidare på forskning!

December 19, 2018

Reading Time: < 1 minute För att öka svensk industris konkurrenskraft och för att utveckla framtidens hållbara produkt-tjänstesystem satsade BTH år 2013 på en forskningsmiljö kring innovativ produktutveckling. Satsningen kunde göras tack vare medel från KK-stiftelsen och ett antal samarbetsföretag.Nu har KK-stiftelsen beviljat en 3-årig fortsättning på profilen “model driven development and decision support” som leds av Professor Tobias Larsson.

Beslutsstödsmiljö för produktutveckling

December 17, 2018

Reading Time: < 1 minute En liten glimt in i den beslutsstödsmiljö för produktutvecklande företag som utvecklas inom forskningsprojektet “model driven development and decision support” tillsammans med våra forskningspartners. Förmåga att redan i konceptfasen, innan man bygger produkterna, kunna förstå kostnad, värde samt miljöpotential mm över hela livscykeln skapar enorma möjligheter att prova olika scenarios och lösningar.
