Open Engineering Design Course

Friend and colleague Professor Farrokh Mistree at Ga Tech is teaching a course ... ME6102 Designing Open Engineering Systems.... At Ga Tech and Washington State. He is seeking examples, case studies, ideas and support. Leave your thoughts in the comments here, or send them to me for forwarding, my email address is in the left column. Thanks for any help!

Goal and Questions for the Semester
The overarching goal for this semester is for you to learn how to create value via IT-enabled strategic engineering.

This is a pilot endeavor supported by P&G, MSC Software and HP. More on this later. Students are enrolled at Georgia Tech in ME6102 Designing Open Engineering Systems and at Washington State University in ME575 Geometric Modeling. More on this later.

The question for the semester for ME6102 is
“Imagine that you are operating a product creation enterprise in the era of Globalization 3.0 where individuals are empowered to participate in the global value network. Your brief is to identify the characteristics of the IT infrastructure to support technical collaboration that furthers open innovation.”

The question for the semester for ME575 is
ME575: Washington State University: “Imagine that you are operating a product creation enterprise in the era of Globalization 3.0 where individuals are empowered to participate in the global value network. How should geometric modeling be carried out in a mass collaborative product realization environment?” ... "

Hi,

http://rfish.net/ is such an open engineering project applied to a web-enabled lap counting device for swimmers. It's in a very early stage, but we're working hard. More info can be found at http://rfish.wordpress.com/

(feel free to contact me at amberg at oberon dot ch)
