Technical-IX Meeting (TTI – Santander, Spain)

From 19th March till 21st March 2013 TTI invited the Amisa consortium to Santander for the Technical-IX Meeting.


An important part of the meeting was the presentations on the current state of the six industry projects. This included the business case clarification and the forecast of possible changes of product and system requirements as well as the development of new adaptable designs and the economic estimation of these designs.


Due to the needs of industry partners the Amisa Design-for-Adaptability methodology and the DfA-tool were enhanced by a variant-handling functionality. Now it is possible to consider multiple variants while developing a more adaptable system.


Besides that, the Amisa methodology was also enhanced by a so called ‘modul-driver’ approach. This approach helps to identify other factors – beside DfA – which might have an influence on the moduls of a product or system: e.g. buying parts might better left in their current state in order to prevent additional costs.
