Implementation of Learning-By-Doing (LBD) methodology in the field of Digital design and Digital Manufacturing. Novel project-based cross-disciplinary courses instill students with modern knowledge for Industry 4.0

Research and Development

”Digital twin” methodology development, hybrid modeling and model verification using advanced digital techniques. Concentration on the Systems-Driven Product Development methodology and tools.

Industrial Applications

Services of “digital twins” development in aerospace, energy, automotive industries. Continuous education for professionals. PLM implementation for high-tech industries, business processes re-engineering for implementation of the System-Driven Product Development approach.

Educational activities
Introduction to PLM Basic course for 1st year MSc students  devoted  to  PLM  as  applied  to  product  development. Basic  theory  about  CAD/CAE,MBSE,  PLM,   optimization  is  given  during  the lectures.  Practical  classes  are  dedicated  to  real  model-based  product  developmentprocess.  System high-level models  are  filled  with  physical  parameters  usingfunctional  modeling .  Then  preliminary  3D  analysis  of aerodynamics  and  structural  analysis  is  performed. Thus, during the coursestudents go through all the main stages of complex system development process.
Advanced PLM I: Digital Design and Optimization This course is dedicated to the end-to-end design methodology, based on the PLM approach. During the course students will develop small unmanned aerial vehicle with deployable wings. The design includes: concept development, conceptual design, systems engineering, 3D physical simulation (CFD and FEM), parametric and topology optimization, final solid design. Educational process is focused on teamwork in this course. Siemens Teamcenter PLM platform is used as to provide interaction within students workgroup. The course provides students with a theoretical and practical basis for implementing projects devoted to the design of complex technical systems, such as unmanned aerial vehicles.
Advanced PLM II: Product Prototyping During the course, students should develop the technology for small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) prototype production. Educational process includes manufacturing technology development, prototype production, prototype testing, model validation. During the course, students learn how to use special software Simcenter 3D, LabView, 3D printers’ software, test machines. The course provides students with a theoretical and practical basis for advanced manufacturing of complex systems, such as UAV and forms the final understanding of the product lifecycle management.
Advanced PLM III: Testing and Model Validation This course is final course in PLM series and is devoted to the different types of testing and numerical models verification. Students learn how to perform vibrational and modal testing in order to identify dynamic parameters of given structure. The modal testing is performed using laser scanning vibrometry. The results of modal and vibrational testing are used for finite-element model validation and updating for accurate dynamics simulation. Also, so called Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) testing is important part of the course. The idea of HiL is to upload the functional model of investigated system to real-time PCB and test it in combination with physical parts. During the course students perform a number of tests with the system that was designed and prototyped during courses Advanced PLM I and Advanced PLM II. Finally, the results are used for system model validation.
