Research in product development in the department can be divided into two streams: product development methods and development practices in organisations.
In product development methods, our research focuses on idea generation, conceptual design, modularisation, integrated product development processes and industrial design and design for manufacturing.
In terms of product development practices in organisations, our research investigates how different types of individual perceptions, team practices and organisational processes support developing innovative products.
