Electric infrastructure creation | 2020-2021

Concluding remarks This feasibility study, which was carried out in close collaboration between Volvo Construction Equipment, Lund University and Blekinge University of Technology, has investigated the conditions for carrying out major infrastructure projects emission- and fossil-free. Furthermore, it has also been investigated whether a decision support, which can operate throughout...

EVALUATING PROTOTYPING SUPPORT IN EARLY TRANSFORMATIVE PSS DESIGN

Abstract Prototypes are an established tool for rapidly increasing learning, communication and decision making rationale for design projects. The proven success has spawned a litany of approaches and methods for building and planning the efficient planning and construction of prototypes. Translating these methods into simple usable tools to assist novice...

Model-Driven Product Service Systems design: the Model-Driven Development and Decision Support (MD3S) approach

Abstract: The paper presents a Model-Driven approach for Product-Service System (PSS) Design promoting an increased digitalization of the PSS design process based on the combination of data-driven design (DDD) activities and value-driven design (VDD) methods. The approach is the results of an 8-year long research profile named (omitted for blind...

Welcome as industrial PhD candidate Wu Peng!

Wu Peng is an industrial PhD candidate at BTH. Working as an R&D Engineer with Sanndvik Coromant he’ll now “double” by doing his PhD with a focus on developing mechanistic cutting force models based on testing and mathematical modelling.

Net based education for Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 – NU4DI | 2021-2023

The project aligns with the BTH strategy of enlarging the recruitment base for distance studies including national and international students, capitalizing on the engineering and pedagogical competencies developed during a pluriannual research profile on Model-Driven Development and Decision Support (MD3S). In line with the BTH strategic directions, the project shall...

Ökad säkerhet och minskade utsläpp i gruvindustrin

Blekinge Tekniska Högskola, BTH, och Volvo Construction Equipment ska tillsammans arbeta för att minska utsläppen och för att minska antalet olycksfall i gruvindustrin. Det ska ske genom användandet av autonoma system och helt elektriska maskiner. Till sin hjälp används digitala tvillingar för att simulera olika effekter – en modell som...

Nya arbetssätt för emissionsfri vägbyggnation

Blekinge Tekniska Högskola (BTH), Lunds Tekniska Högskola (LTH) och Volvo Construction Equipment har tillsammans fått ett nytt projekt beviljat av Trafikverket. Det ettåriga projektet syftar till att demonstrera tekniklösningar för att kunna driva större infrastrukturbyggen 100 procent emissionsfritt genom att elektrifiera alla mobila maskiner som är involverade. Lösningen kommer sannolikt att...
