Abstract [en]

In the presented paper the authors expose their experience with caring out a course "Systematic Approach" to the "Product Development", at Linnaeus University, Sweden. Product Development is a process based on a number of techniques and methods applied in correct order to achieve the best result in design and innovation tasks. For successful product development in a present competitive market interdisciplinary different types of skills are required. The mission of the course is to prepare future leaders in new products' engineering and management. Teaching such abstract subject, where at every step decision making in aesthetic, engineering and economic issues is required, is a real challenge for the course instructors. The fundament in this course is industrial projects, about real products. The participating students must understand the theory given in the lectures at the same time as they have to manage to apply it in development of different type of products. Students from different backgrounds like Mechanical Engineering and Business Engineering programs, and exchange students from eight different countries were participating in the course. They were divided in missed groups of four people in each group. Every three groups were competed each other through solving the same problem. The projects finished with concept designs, based on identified customer needs, concept generation, developed product architecture, and project management.
