Systems Engineering and Engineering Management

Systems Engineering and Engineering Management support an effective and efficient development of products. In order to convince consumers with a product innovation, one has to learn about the nature of product use, the prevailing conditions, and the profile of the targeted buyer group. One approach
is the usage of application scenarios. These application scenarios are provided as inputs to the product development process.

Our research is focused on methods and tools supporting the functional and production-driven realization of complex technical systems. Across various disciplines, our methodological approaches such as the Vmodel for mechatronic systems or Systems Engineering are a link in interdisciplinary product
development projects. Here, the main focus is the increase of efficiency in both, development
and production processes. Application in an industrial context yields optimization potentials up to 30 percent in process time and cost.

In our under- and postgraduate education, students learn various methods and tools for systematic support of product development processes. Our lectures are a link between academic research and industrial application: By implementing practical case studies both perspectives are combined in a practical manner. For instance, students can solve real-life industrial problems in our project seminars. By this approach, our education is fundamental for both, the formation of problem-solving skills of our graduates as well as the promision application of tools and methods in academia and industrial practice.
