To meet the global product requirements on personalized functionalities, lower cost, and better quality, this group will emphasize on the product innovations by developing new design theories, methods and tools as well as applications in product design and development. The current research includes the market/customers requirement analysis and prediction, design and analysis of adaptable product architecture, product interface design, etc. For the application aspect, the group currently focuses on design of the critical modules/components/interfaces of the final product(e.g., electric vehicle, light industrial equipment, etc.) by using advanced design methodologies. 3D printing and virtual reality technologies will be used in development processes of products/modules and major components.
