Abstract [en]

Design-driven innovation focuses on the innovation of product meanings. This innovation is enabled by integrating knowledge on needs, product language and technological development. So far, it has mostly been studied in contexts where the buyer is the assumed end user. There has been little research about design-driven innovation in other contexts, such as business-to-business and public contexts. Here, companies need to create value for multiple stakeholders. In this study, these are defined as users, buyers and influencers. The aim of this study is to explore how companies consider the different stakeholders in the innovation of product meanings. Two companies participated in a case study. The results demonstrate that both companies mainly focus on addressing needs. However, while one case company prioritizes the perspective from the user, the other focuses more on the buyer. The results illustrate the increased complexity that companies need to manage in design-driven innovation in these contexts.

Abstract [en]

The School of Engineering in Jönköping offers four master programs with in total about 100 students, relatively evenly distributed among those four programs. The school has made a thorough revision of all its programs, largely to improve the influence by the principles of CDIO with a start of the new curricula at fall semester 2013. For the master programs this meant that a new joint introductory course for all master students should be set in operation. The aim with this paper is to present the basic rationale behind the course, how it was set in operation and the students’ and teachers’ experiences of the first trial as well as planned modifications for next year’s course. The profile of the research at the school is to advance the knowledge concerning the product realization process in small- and medium sized manufacturing companies and the different master programs support this profile. It was thus decided that the introductory course should demonstrate the same profile by a project performed by the students. Moreover, the course should support the development of a community of master students that know each other regardless of the master program they are following in order to enlarge the opportunities for networking and bringing different experiences together. The course should be appropriate as an introduction course for the four master programs, specializing in industrial design, product development, information engineering or production systems. The course should thus provide understanding also for other stages in the product realization process that are related to but not included in the own education, both regarding the process, the leadership and the research methods used. The design of the course was done by the program managers together with the examining teacher in group dynamics and leadership, thereby involving five teachers. The course examination volume is 9 credits (out of 120 for a whole master program), divided into three parts, the content of the product realization process (3 credits), the group dynamics and leadership development (3 credits) and the research and inquiry methodology knowledge (3 credits). The course was structured and taught by lectures, exercises, seminars and project work. Projects groups were formed including at least one student from each program. The examinations were done by a poster and model exhibition regarding the content of the product realization process, an individual reflective assignment regarding the leadership and group development process during the project and an individual written exam regarding the research and inquiry methodology part. The course is just finished, the exhibition has been held and the teacher group is correcting and grading the exam and the assignments. A plenary oral evaluation has been held where the students confirmed that some goals were reached and some were not. Moreover, the examination results of the course is not fully known yet but will be reported in the paper. The experiences among the teacher group are multifaceted but largely positive and next year’s course is looked forward to.

Abstract [en]

Teachers from two different disciplines, Materials and manufacturing and Industrial design, are brought together to give a course on masters level. Also the students come from different disciplines. They study two different master programs in Product development, Product development and materials engineering and Industrial design. The course is called Materials and design, and it covers both disciplines. Apart from lectures, computer labs and home assignments, a workshop was arranged where the students during one day solved a task related to product development. The students were divided into groups in such a way that a mixture of students from the two programs was obtained. The workshop was held at a company in order to make the work more realistic. Before they started to solve the task, they were given an introduction to the products made by the company and their applications. The main task was then to investigate the products and come up with ideas about what applications there might be in the future. The result was at the end of the day presented to the company. In this paper, the workshop is described, and comments and reflections from the students and the company are summarized. Finally the teachers involved give their opinion about the result and the pedagogic benefits from such a workshop, and also what to think about for the next time. It appeared that the workshop was an eye-opener to the company at the same time as the students had a fair chance to work in a realistic situation and practice how to use their knowledge. Also for the teachers it was a good experience, not only from a pedagogic viewpoint but also on how to arrange this kind of workshops in the future.

Abstract [en]

The way a product or material is experienced by its user could be different depending on the scenario. It is also well known that different materials and surfaces are used for different purposes. When optimizing materials and surface roughness for a certain something with the intention to improve a product, it is important to obtain not only the physical requirements, but also the user experience and expectations. Laws and requirements of the materials and the surface function, but also the conservative way of thinking about materials and colours characterize the design of medical equipment. The purpose of this paper is to link the technical- and customer requirements of current materials and surface textures in medical environments. By focusing on parts of the theory of Kansei Engineering, improvements of the companys' products are possible. The idea is to find correlations between desired experience or «feeling» for a product, -customer requirements, functional requirements, and product geometrical properties -design parameters, to be implemented on new improved products. To be able to find new materials with the same (or better) technical requirements but a higher level of user stimulation, the current material (stainless steel) and its surface (brushed textures) was used as a reference. The usage of focus groups of experts at the manufacturer lead to a selection of twelve possible new materials for investigation in the project. In collaboration with the topical company for this project, three new materials that fulfil the requirements -easy to clean and anti-bacterial came to be in focus for further investigation in regard to a new design of a washer-disinfector for medical equipment using the Kansei based Clean ability approach CAA. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
