Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


The lecture will focus on smart products and product systems with integrated, internet-based services and their specific engineering and lifecycle processes. Related disciplines (e.g. business model development) and product lifecycle phases (e.g. product use) are referenced. In detail, the following topics are covered:
  • Basic understanding and specifications of smart products and services
  • Application areas and potential benefits of smart products and services
  • Implications of smart products and services for the development of new products
  • Engineering of integrated product-service systems and smart services
  • Digital product twins
  • Connectivity with platforms and surrounding components
  • Reconfiguration during product use
  • Data-driven products, development and business models

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students are able to:
  • name, characterize and compare methods, concepts and IT tools that belong in the domain of engineering smart products and product systems,
  • classify methods and concepts in context of smart product and service engineering as an essential tool with regard to their area of application and assess them with regard to their potential use,
  • establish and reflect links to related disciplines (e.g. business model development) and product lifecycle phases (e.g. production).
