Abstract (englisch):
Industry trends such as Digitalization, Electric Mobility, Automated Driving and Connected Car significantly increase the interactions of technical subsystems in complex, mechatronic products. However, established development processes are component-oriented. As GAUSEMEIER puts it, a shift towards development processes and methods that focus on product functions is necessary in order to strengthen customer-orientation, so called function-oriented product development. In addition, observations in development practice have shown that products are not developed on a white sheet of paper, but rather through the systematic variation of technical subsystems over generations, as described in the model of PGE-Product Generation Development by ALBERS. But how can function-orientation in product development be supported based on the model of PGE-Product Generation Engineering?

In this contribution, an empirical study is carried out in order to identify major challenges of Systems Engineering in the age of Digitalization. According to the experts, consequently focusing on product functions throughout the development process is a promising ... mehr
