ROBUST DESIGN DAY

WEDNESDAY 8TH NOVEMBER, TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF DENMARK

While the principle benefits of robust design are widely accepted, there is still a large gap between robust design in theory and in practice. DTU’s annual Robust Design Day therefore aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners focusing on applied Robust Design and Variation Management in Design and Production. The objective is a regular platform for discussions and a fruitful knowledge exchange on experiences, solutions and challenges faced.

The trade-off between complexity and robustness - development and implementation of the contradictions index

Ass. Prof. Tobias Eifler, Head of Robust Design, DTU-MEK

Head of the DTU Robust Design Group and chair of the Robust Design SIG in the Design Society. PhD in Engineering Design Methodology from the Technical University Darmstadt (Germany) and research focus in the field of Robust Design Methodology, Robust Design for Reliability, Variation Management across different organizational units including the benefits of new technologies and data analytics.

Axiomatic Design of Robust Products and Systems

Prof. Nam P. Suh, MIT & KAIST

Professor at MIT and author of the seminal works on Design Theory: Axiomatic Design. Axiomatic design has had broad uptake by industry and academics. While it divides opinion as a general design theory, the application of the axioms for the purposes of increasing Robustness is well documented.

Geometrical Product Specification in practice – challenges and opportunities

Johan Dovmark, Novo Nordisk A/S

Specialist in Technical Product Documentation (TPD), and the use of Geometrical product specification (GPS), across the full product realisation phase, i.e. Design, Production and Inspection. As senior consultant in the field of GPS and as coordinator within the ISO Technical Committee 213 Dimensional and geometrical product specifications and verification, Johan has significantly contributed to implementation of GPS in Denmark, in Europe, as well as beyond.
