The lecture includes the following contents:

  • Basic terms for strategy, organization and processes in product development.
  • Overview of the structure and process of creating services in the product creation process (e.g. Engineer to Order, Assemble to Order, Manufacture to Order).
  • Development and supplier network.
  • Product-oriented vs. component-oriented structures (design bill of materials).
  • Process and method management in development management (e.g. process and method libraries).
  • Information technology to support development work (e.g. CAD, PLM, ERP).

To deepen the learning content, various short exercises are carried out in groups during the event.
