The complexity of product realization has increased significantly due to the requirements on ecological and social as well as economical sustainability. This has led to an increased demand on innovations concerning new materials and product- and process technologies, as well as on new business models for a better utilization of products and materials.
Most innovations occur through a learning process where various actors, individuals as well as organizations, take part. Breakthroughs do not necessarily occur within the research or development departments, they are equally likely to occur during production or utilization. The challenge thus lies in providing platforms and tools for cross-divisional, collaborative innovation and for sharing Best Practices.
This paper describes an initiative at KTH Royal Institute of Technology for supporting the integration of various company disciplines and external expertise through a collaborative framework where industry and academy can collaborate, supported by modeling, simulation and visualization during the innovation process. The approach combines theories and methods concerning innovation and digital factories and emphasizes aspects concerning learning, communication and collaboration.
