Agile product engineering through continuous validation in PGE - Product Generation Engineering

Albers, Albert; Behrendt, Matthias; Klingler, Simon; Reiss, Nicolas; Bursac, Nikola

Most products are developed in generations. This needs to be considered with regardto development methods and processes to make existing knowledge available to achieveincreased eciency. To realize this, the approach of PGE product generation engineering is formulated. Product generation engineering is understood as the development ofproducts based on reference products (precursor or competitor products). The subsystemsare either adapted to the new product generation by means of carryover or they are newlydeveloped based on shape variation or principle variation. Validation is considered as thecentral activity in the product engineering process and is a major challenge, especially forcomplex mechatronic systems. Therefore, it is important to understand validation as anongoing activity during product development. The pull principle of validation describesthe definition and development of validation activities, including models and validationenvironments based on specific validation objectives. In order to have eectiveness withinvalidation of subsystems, it is necessary to map the interactions with the overall system,namely the super- ... mehr
