Every day we use numerous technical products that make our lives easier: Cell phones, cars, coffee machines, etc. We consumers not only want to be able to use all these products according to their purpose, they should also meet a wide range of requirements: they should function faultlessly, be safe, pollute the environment as little as possible, be comfortable and cost-effective. In order to meet all these challenges, comprehensive product development is required before a product is launched on the market. In addition to these increasingly complex customer expectations, there are additional demands on product development, such as new business models of companies or globalization.

In his lecture as part of the TU Ilmenau Citizens' Campus, Prof. Stephan Husung, Head of the Product and System Development at the TU Ilmenau, explains the impact of these challenges to product development on research and teaching at the university. To cope with them, research is developing methods and models that specifically support product developers in their tasks. And teaching at TU Ilmenau provides students with the necessary competencies for this: not only technical competencies, but also methodological and social competencies.
