Knowledge-Based Environment to Enable Lean Thinking in Product Development Workshop
As part of the Lean Innovation Forum taking place in Madrid from 24 to 26 October 2017, we will host the Knowledge-Based Environment to Enable Lean Thinking in Product Development workshop at Toyota Auditorium in the morning of October 24.
Lean PPD is the application of lean thinking in product design, engineering and development. It focuses on value creation, the provision of a knowledge environment, continuous improvement and a set-based concurrent engineering (SBCE) process that encourage innovation and collaboration.
It provides a knowledge-based user-centric design and development environment to support value creation for the customers in terms of innovation and customization, quality, as well as sustainable and affordable products.
LeanPPD is product development in a knowledge-based environment. This session presents an overview of LeanPPD and its core element, SBCE, as well as the Lean Knowledge Life Cycle (LeanKLC), a methodology which enables companies to systematically capture, re-use and create knowledge in product development. The session will also introduce Trade-off Curves (ToC) as a knowledge visualization tool which enables SBCE applications. This is done through generating sets of designs, comparing different design solutions, narrowing sets of design solutions, and optimizing the final design solution.
During the workshop, participants will have hands-on experiences in the application of ToC using realistic industrial data to generate a set of designs within a SBCE environment.
Participation at the workshop includes:
- The Knowledge-Based Environment to Enable Lean Thinking in Product Development workshop
- A networking lunch
