research & design thinking

With extensive knowledge of the absolute forefront of engineering research and innovation we offer practical tools and methods for product-service development, design automation and innovation engineering, as well as long range research strategies.

Research & Development

Setting up a research and development strategy, building a research organisation able to implement, or carrying out the research. Securing the future success is often done through extensive work today. Product-Service Development and Design Automation is at the core. In the light of globalisation and accelerated pace, investing in your future is not to be taken lightly.

Design Thinking

Setting the ambidextrous teams in center, the iterative problem solving process of understanding, observing, ideating, prototyping and testing is put at play, with a very deliberate touch of creativity. Needfinding, user experience, and creative problem solving methods and tools are often gathered in workshop mode deployment.

Innovation Engineering

Creating new values, hence innovation, is a desire with many. Understanding user desirability, business viability and technical feasibility is at the core together with methods and tools to early in conceptual phases understand value contribution of possible ideas, features and solutions. Having an exponential thinking, 10X, approach is needed!

Responsible for the Value Innovation initiative is Tobias Larsson. Having 20 years of research experience in the product development field, I’m today a chaired professor at Blekinge Institute of Technology in Karlskrona, Sweden, where I run the Product Development Research Lab at BTH, and has also been Dean of Faculty of Engineering.

Starting out with a PhD within Computer Aided Design with a focus on Simulation Driven Design, I have explored the fields of transportation, automotive, aerospace and space, together with recent explorations into healthcare sector. I have collaborated and set up multiple research projects and have a wide global network in education, research and industry.

Collaborators over the years are on the industrial side Airbus, Axis, BAE Land Systems Hägglunds, Ericsson, GKN Aerospace, Rolls-Royce, Telenor, Saab, Sandvik Coromant, Stena, Tetra Pak, VINNOVA, Volvo Cars, Volvo Construction Equipment to mention some. Exponential workshops and inspirational talks are carried out via BTH and our startup 10X Labs
