In this paper, a methodology to connect the multidisciplinary design analysis and optimization (MDAO) problem formulation tool KADMOS and the commercial Process Integration and Design Optimization (PIDO) platform Optimus is presented. This capability has been developed in the context of the EU project AGILE. The aim of this development is to...

Buttler, T. (author)
Project-based organizations collect lessons learned in order to improve the performance of projects. They aim to repeat successes by using positive lessons learned, and to avoid repeating negative experiences by using negative lessons learned. Cooke-Davies (2002) claimed that the ability to learn from past projects for future projects is a key...

Stoop, J.A.A.M. (author)
Safety is frequently addressed as an emergent property of complex and dynamic systems. This contribution advocates the validity and importance of incorporating intrinsic technological hazards and systemic interrelations from a multi-actor perspective in the early phases of design and development. This perspective creates inherent properties in...

Designing transient thermal mechanical systems is a challenging task. Material can have many different functions: it can provide heat capacity, heat conduction, mechanical stiffness or even function as an actuator. Topology optimization can provide the engineer with valuable insight on such a problem. One of the most popular topology...

This article presents an evolutionary topology optimization method for mean compliance minimization of structures under design-dependent viscous fluid flow loads. The structural domain is governed by the elasticity equation and the fluid by the incompressible Stokes flow equations. When the modelling of a system consists in the interaction of...

This paper presents a proposal to employ the design computing methodology proposed as StructuralComponents (Rolvink et al [6] and van de Weerd et al [7]) as a method to perform a digital verification process to fulfil the requirements related to structural design and engineering as part of a building design. In current design and engineering...

Future air traffic concepts foresee that in unmanaged airspace, to reduce workload of air traffic controllers and the resulting constraints on capacity, the separation task will be delegated to the flight deck. Technology-driven pilot self-separation support systems have been developed that present explicit automated solutions to deal with...

Ellerbroek, J. (author)
The advent of automation in the cockpit has greatly affected the nature of the tasks on the flight deck, as well as requirements on the flight crew. Although the introduction of automation in aircraft undeniably improved performance and safety, it also increased complexity in the cockpit. In addition to knowledge of basic flight information,...

Decision making in the tender phase of large infrastructural projects is a complex task for contractors as they have to make design decisions with long term effects and based on complex client requirements. Further complexity is added by the constrained environment of a tender and the uncertainty of winning the tender. As the context and the...

This paper discusses an enhanced use of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) in the design cycle of large scale infrastructure systems. After a short review of the use of M&S in the current systems design process, we identify some issues in multi-actor design environment. A Simulation Based Design (SBD) framework is proposed to tackle these issues...

The Systems Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management (SEPAM) MSc curriculum taught at Delft University of Technology focuses on the design of socio-technical systems (STS). We teach our students to structure design activities by considering what we call the TIP aspects: Technical systems, Institutions, and decision-making Processes. Students...

Cooper, C.A. (author)
The design of complex systems in today’s aerospace domain requires a balance between the ever-increasing complexity of the supporting technology and the drive to develop those systems in a compressed timeframe. The performance knowledge of a preliminary design must shift backwards in the lifecycle in order to exploit that knowledge when there is...

Schut, E.J. (author)
In order to keep innovating, engineers are working more and more with engineering software, providing them a way to cut away their routine and repetitive activities. Computer aided design and simulation software are for instance considered standard tools in most engineering companies. Today, to solve complex engineering design problems,...

Heeney, A. (author), Foster, J. (author)
This paper discusses how Engineering Science, an undergraduate division within the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada, has worked to foster engineers that can meaningfully contribute to sustainable development (SD). Specifically, Engineering Science has developed ESC102: Praxis II, a core course required for...

With solid theoretical support from industrial ecology, an increasing number of industrial ecosystems (including eco-industrial parks and industrial symbiosis) have been created all over the world. There is no doubt that the Kalundborg symbiosis, which has steadily operates for thirty years, is our successful exemplar, although some problems...

In high–risk domains like aviation, medicine and nuclear power plant control, automation has enabled new capabilities, increased the economy of operation and has greatly contributed to safety. However, automation increases the number of couplings in a system, which can inadvertently lead to more complexity from the perspective of the operator....

Lakerveld, R. (author)
Crystallization is historically one of the most important separation and product formation technologies in chemical industry. The future impact of crystallization is expected to increase as new high-added value products are often in crystalline form and need to comply with increasingly stringent product quality requirements. This calls for...

With progress of space technology and increase of space mission demand, requirements for robustness and reliability of space systems are ever-increasing. For the whole space mission life cycle, the most important decisions are made in the conceptual design phase, so it is very crucial to take uncertainties into consideration in this initial...

This paper addresses the complexity of analyzing and designing sociotechnical systems: systems that involve both complex physical-technical systems and networks of interdependent actors. It is shown that, although a hard system perspective and an actor perspective differ greatly in terms of terminology, methods, and applicability, they also show...
