Simulation model boosts - R&D process development


Customer: Nokia Oyj


Product development processes are complex and depend more on people than machines, bringing challenges to R&D process simulation and development.


Nokia and VTT developed system dynamic model asset which analyses and specifies cause and effect relations in product development, including technical, human and financial structures. The model asset was tested and evaluated by hundreds of people as Product Creation Game, in which the participants are challenged to apply their skills in intensive operational decision making, while gaining insight to the complex business interactions through hands on exercise.

  • Practical tool for improving product process performance and productivity by enabling modelling of combined human and mechanical systems.
  • The model asset can be used for process optimisation, management, improvement and reengineering as well as for coaching.
  • Process simulation game has proven to be a practical catalyst for achieving joint understanding and gaining insight to system behaviour.
