You will be contacted by the course provider to book the date (from Feb. 2021) for the course when you have registered to it. This is a wake up call for communication. The course gives you tools to be well prepared for communicating your research to non experts. We use an interview and camera to test your skills. This knowledge is useful in all communication, such as trying to convince financiers and/or companies about your project. But also for preparing presentations, interviews in media or teaching. To get a professional message bank in a concrete research project we recommend the advanced course - step two.
Courses for PhD Candidates and professionals in the area of product and production development.
You book the date (from Feb. 2021) for the course when you have registered to it. Take the chance to sharpen your communication skills to be more convincing and successful in trying to reach different target groups, especially non-experts, with your research.
The big difference from PM1 is that you will get help from the course leader, as a professional communications coach, with the preparations to make a good performance.
A communication eye opener! It is both necessary and important for researchers in academia and industry to know how to explain complicated research to non-experts.
The course aims to increase awareness regarding sustainability by addressing a life-cycle perspective of sustainability in general and in specifics from three aspects, social, environmental and economic viewpoints within the core research area of each participant. Performing effective sustainability research will lead to sustainable development!
The course aims to introduce principles of multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO). Theory will be presented by means of examples to demonstrate its application so that practitioners can learn how to apply them on their own problems.
Manual work affects virtually all times used in industry, even if machines are producing the goods, people are needed to keep the machines running. The importance of these manual activities is often neglected, for example set-up time is often regarded as a constant for a specific machine regardless product type changed to or from.
The course aims to provide a theoretical reference base for conducting research in product development.
The course is centred around the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook and is run as a study circle and will give an introduction to the area of systems engineering.
This course aims at facilitating the participant to learn the interplays between different areas relevant to Circular Economy - business model, governmental policy, product/service design, user behaviour, and supply chain management. The course will also support the participant to carry out and reflect upon his/her research with a transdisciplinary approach.
This much appreciated course will in theory and practice develop the participant’s skill in analyzing and comparing product development and production systems in different countries. Participants will visit Swedish as well as International companies and on a theoretical base, analyse and discuss product development and production from a global perspective.
Research methodology in product realisation is a research supportive course that aims to give students a comprehensive knowledge of various kind of research methods, and in-depth knowledge of the methods that are relevant for the individual student.
The aim of the course is to prepare doctoral students researching and working on topics in the engineering design area to conduct research work of high scientific quality.
This course is for you who want to explore the possibilities within the field of metrology and surface characterisation at different stages of development - testing, manufacturing, operation... Practical applications from your own field forms the basis for included course projects.
The course provides insight into production challenges and innovative production solutions at a large number of manufacturing companies that serve as inspiration and live cases (e.g. SSAB, Sandvik, Gnosjö companies).
The aim of the course is to guide participants through the journal publication process with their own contribution.
The course is targeted at professionals and doctoral students who want to attain a deeper understanding of machining processes. Through better understanding of today’s forefront of machining research the participants will be better suited to both implement and contribute to the continued development of the field of machining processes.
This course gives the participants an overview of and a common knowledge base in the areas of research of Produktion2030, with an emphasis on industrial product development and production. Teachers are recruited from participating academic institutions and collaborating industrial partners for each run of the course.
The course aims to provide knowledge about modern technologies in production systems. Different technologies are introduced from the production’s perspective with real-life examples and case studies.
The course aims to give knowledge of how virtual tools can be used as a mean to successfully realize industrial human-robot collaboration. The course also aims to give the participants knowledge in how a human-robot development project can be undertaken, considering critical aspects such as efficiency, safety and ergonomics.
The aim of the course is to increase participants understanding of key concepts, and to develop their competence and skills in how to perform qualitative analysis. The participants will develop an ability to judge and evaluate the choice of analytical method applied to an adequate set of empirical data. Furthermore, the course aims at increasing the participants’ understanding of the premises for publishing results based on qualitative data analysis in scientific journals.
The course aims to provide a basic understanding for how modelling, simulation and optimization can be employed to support the engineering product development process.
The course aims to increase awareness regarding industrial maintenance and its importance for the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry. The course address a broad perspective of industrial maintenance, focusing on production equipment.
In the course, product platforms are studied from both theoretical and practical perspectives. This includes fundamental concepts together with current research and industrial practise in the area. Different support for planning, developing and analysing product platform design are introduced and practised. The impact on business processes of different platform strategies are discussed as well as their use in different sectors and applications.
This course puts the concept of optimal design on a rigorous foundation and demonstrates the intimate relationship between the mathematical model that describes a design and the solution methods that optimize it.
Societal and industrial activities call for a need to relate research and practice on Engineering Product Development to the pressing issues of sustainable development. In this course, we will address how various sustainability aspects relate to Engineering Product Development and focus on why, how and when sustainability needs to be integrated and implemented in the product development activities.
