151-0300-00LInnovation Project Restricted registration - show details 2 credits2UM. Meboldt
AbstractThe students are going through a product development process starting with the first idea to the functional product. The participants will learn to work on a complex development task in a team (4-5 pers.), to structure a given problem, to generate and evaluate ideas as well as the design and realization of the product with subsequent verification.
ObjectiveThe students learn and experience the principles of product development. In addition to acquiring development methodical responsibilities, the main focus is on working together as a team. The participants are taught how to structure a complex development objective and how to achieve this objective in team work. In the end, the students will master the basics of development processes and development methodical tools.
Prerequisites / NoticeSuccessfull completion of the project is mandatory for lecture certificate.

AbstractThe lecture focuses on the basics of agile product development, in which development processes are structured in the form of several short sprints. The lecture deepens the relevant technical and methodological knowledge for the implementation of the characteristic core activities: Design, Build, Test.
ObjectiveStudents understand the concept of agile product development and know the most important elements for planning and executing a sprint. They know individual methods for finding and selecting solutions and can apply basic methods for risk and cost analysis. Students are also able to calculate drives and mechanisms for different operating conditions.
Content- Agile product development

3 credits2GM. Meboldt
AbstractThe module focuses on agile product development and the implementation of new technologies using additive manufacturing as an example. Participants will be introduced to basic principles, methods and mindset of Agile development by solving a practical development task in teams. Next, we will explore how agile development is used to integrate new technologies into a company.
ObjectiveAfter attending this course, participants are familiar with the fundamentals of Additive Manufacturing (AM), the technology’s impact on product development and value creation. Furtherrmore, the students are introduced to the key principles and practices of Agile product development.
