Open Obeya - A system engineering lab

The aim of the project is to:

  • Present a new SBCE-based way of working with methodological support for idea generation and modeling, handling, evaluation and choice of solution concept as well as balancing of requirements and synthesis
  • Describe an overarching process for effective generalization, visualization and reuse of knowledge and methods and tools that designers can use
  • Present a way of working for feedback of results and knowledge as well as methodology for the documentation of experiences from PU projects.

The results from the project aim to contribute significantly to increased sustainability by enabling reduced development costs and new more powerful as well as user friendly methods and tools in the development process.
