About this book

This first book on Modelling and Management of Engineering Processes (MMEP) presents leading national and international research in the fields of engineering design, process modelling in engineering design and product development, and innovation management selected for the first international conference MMEP 2010.

Innovative processes for design of products and services are more and more considered as an organisational capability which is recognised as increasingly important for business success in today’s competitive environment. However, academia and management need to gain a more profound understanding of these processes and and develop better management approaches to exploit such business potential.

This book showcases the current research in this field and is structured into four parts from theory towards organisational practice:
• Engineering Process Management in Theory
• Managing Complex Engineering Processes
• Managing Product and Process Information
• Engineering Process Management in Practice

This book was triggered by a series of industry workshops with representatives from leading companies from within the manufacturing, service and healthcare sectors from Germany, Sweden and the UK in order to identify future research needs. It hopefully marks the starting point for further research and discussion within the Special Interest Group MMEP of the Design Society.

About the authors

John Clarkson is Professor of Engineering Design and Director of the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge, UK. After receiving a PhD in Engineering (Electrical Machines) from the university, he spent seven years as Manager of the Advanced Process Group for PA Consulting Group's Technology Division. His current research interests are in engineering design, particularly the development of design methodologies to address specific design issues.

Peter Heisig is a senior research associate in the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge, UK. He has previously worked for the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology, and in 2005 he founded eureki (European Research Center for Knowledge and Innovation) - a network of experts to help organisations improve the usage and creation of knowledge for innovation.

Sandor Vajna is Professor and Chair of Information Technologies in Mechanical Engineering at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany. His research areas include integrated product development; engineering process models; product modelling by feature technology and parametrics; product optimisation using evolutionary methods; engineering systems integration; CAD/CAM systems application and migration; and calculation methods and tools of the economic viability of new technologies.
