Market driven process and structure innovation
(Quality Marketing Services, 1998)
Parametric and Generative Design Techniques for Mass-Customization in Building Industry: A Case Study for Glued-Laminated Timber
(Elsevier B.V., 2017)
According to Wortmann classification, the Building Industry (BI) can be defined as engineer-to-order (ETO) industry: the engineering-process starts only when an order is acquired. This definition implies that every final ...
Programming a Parametric Design Algorithm to Improve Manufacturing Processes’ Efficiency: the Case Study of Glued-Laminated Timber
In the last decade, Parametric and Generative Design techniques become quite popular for form-finding strategies or for pushing automation in design processes. Nevertheless these techniques could be applied in engineering ...
From market to market – Extension of Axiomatic Design to a holistic innovation management approach
(M. K. Thompson, 2011)
The success rate of new products and services can only be increased by a strict orientation to the future markets and respectively the (future) stakeholder’s and the customer’s benefit perception. This paper presents a ...
Reducing the time dependent complexity in organizational systems using the concept of functional periodicity
(Institute of Axiomatic Design, 2009)
Economic growth and sustainable value creation are a company’s most important long-term targets. However, practical experience shows that large structures notoriously suffer from efficiency losses due to increasing ...
The power of simplicity: Design of flexible, changeable and efficient assembly systems through systematic complexity reduction
(Dep. of Mechanical Engineering, 2007)
The complexity of an assembly system is caused by two factors: by a time-independent poor design that causes low efficiency (system design), and by a time-dependent reduction of system performance due to system deterioration ...
Value stream oriented planning of supply networks
(École Nationale Supérieure des Mines, 2006)
In today’s competitive environment, the only recipe for success is the fast and persistent innovation of products, processes and organizational structures. According to Schumpeter’s definition, innovation is mostly determined ...
Design of changeable assembly systems – A complexity theory based approach
(IEEE Service Center, 2007)
Since most of today’s industrial products are characterized by high complexity and numerous customer-specific variants, adaptive production system concepts are needed to meet the quickly changing market and customer ...
Enhanced survivability - a framework of self-healing mechanisms’ installation using Axiomatic Design in agile manufacturing systems
This paper presents a theoretic framework based on Axiomatic Design principles for the installation of self-healing strategies and mechanisms in order to control the effects of the time-dependent combinatorial complexity ...
