Summary of the talk
Advanced Systems Engineering – The Future of the Product Creation Process
Digitalization will have a significant impact on future technical systems and thus on the future of product creation within enterprises and values creation networks. Especially the rising complexity through integrated product service systems, smart services, systems of systems and cybertronic systems lead to the new paradigm “Advanced Systems Engineering”, which deals with empowering enterprises to deal with such developments.
Systems Engineering currently does not offer sufficient support to handle present and future challenges and the rising complexity of systems. Advanced Systems Engineering defines new approaches to handle the ever-rising complexity of product and service combinations. A central part of the approach are novel system-oriented and model-based development methods and interdisciplinary approaches that bridge the current gaps between all relevant disciplines in product creation.
The presentation will focus on the key elements of Advanced Systems Engineering, current challenges and needs of enterprises, requested future developments and research topics. Finally, some ongoing projects of Fraunhofer IAO will be presented.
