Mid-term and Technical-VII Meeting (TUM – Munich)

From 3rd till 5th September 2012 the Technical-VII Meeting took place in Munich and was hosted by Technische Universität München (TUM) and MAN Truck and Bus.

During the meeting the current version of the DfA-tool was presented on the basis of the industrial cases of each AMISA partner. Then the roadmap of the industry cases for evaluating the AMISA methodology was planned.

To consider existing system structures in the future utilization of DfA, a method for dealing with variants was presented, also considering potential drivers for modularization besides DfA.

The economical part of the methodology, by means of calculating option value, option costs and upgrade costs of an adaptable system, was enhanced by aspects of Monte-Carlo simulation and discussed during the meeting.

Academic Forum II (TAU – Tel Aviv)

From 27th till 29th January 2013 the University of Tel Aviv (TAU) hosted the Academic Forum II. Besides the academic partners also TPPS and IAI participated in the meeting.

Topics discussed were the Option Valuation by using the Monte Carlo approach first presented during the September meeting in Munich, TRIZ technology forecasting on the functions and components level and the concept of dealing with variants and other drivers for modularization beside DfA. The stakeholder integration approach was also further elaborated and discussed. Besides the current state of the methodology guideline was presented and the further development of the DfA-tool discussed.

Technical-VIII Meeting (TPPS – Modena)

TPPS invited the AMISA consortium to Modena for the Technical-VIII meeting from 11th till 13th December 2012. One key element of the meeting was the discussion of the current state of the industry cases, including highlights and special issues. This also served as an evaluation of the AMISA methodology revealing positive aspects and potential aspects for further improvement of the methodology and the DfA-tool.

In order to validate the assumptions being made while conducting the methodology (e.g. technology forecasting, business case) a first approach for a stakeholder integration was presented and judged favorably by the AMISA partners.
