Richard Birkelands vei 2, Verkstedteknisk * 246B

Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

Kompetanseområder:

  • Produktutviklingsmetodikk
  • Produktprogramutvikling
  • Universell design

Forskningsområder:

  • Metoder for effektiv produktutvikling
  • Universell design av produkter, særlig rettet mot offentlig transport
  • Design for environment

Løpende prosjekt:

"The design factory" - en del av SFI Norman (se www.sfinorman.no). Her arbeider vi med å industrialisere og effektivisere utviklingsprosessen i norske industribedrifter. Vi arbeider med metoder for å fremme en kultur for innovasjon og med nye produktutviklngsmetoder.

Faglig bakgrunn:

Dr.ing-grad (PhD) fra NTH 1995 ved Institutt for maskinkonstruksjon.

I perioden 1981 til 2004 var jeg forsker og seniorforsker ved SINTEF, først på Maskinkonstruksjon, så på Produksjonsteknikk, deretter på Materialteknikk og til slutt på Teknologi og samfunn. I et par av disse årene var jeg også forskningssjef.
