The training 'Advanced mechatronic system design' (AMSD) is set-up in a masterclass manner with a mix of presentations and exercises by renowned system architects in combination with a conceptual design case study of a precision system, which will be worked on in teams throughout the course including a customer presentation at the end of the course.
Participants will gather physical insights, working methods and design concepts for the development of precision systems. Special attention will be given to lessons learned from the past, in terms of approach and in application of specific technical problems and solutions. “Eindhoven nowadays is the smartest region and outstanding in the world because we made the most mistakes in the past and learned from them”, Jan van Eijk says. “With this training we transfer all these skills and know-how to future generations of mechatronic system designers, so they can build on this knowledge. In this way, our advance in technology will continue to increase.”
After the course, the participant will be able to apply an agile systems engineering approach in the conceptual phase of an innovative project, make conceptual trade-offs and estimate the implications on system level and perform a risk assessment incl. mitigation. Furthermore, the participant will be aware of the roles that the various stakeholders in the customer organization play during the process and how to set-up a convincing customer presentation despite all uncertainties that are inherent to the conceptual phase.
The next ASMD training is expected in Eindhoven in Spring 2015.
