Product Development - a Life Cycle Approach

7.5 credits

In general, all product development is complex. We therefore need a methodology that in a systematically way decompose complexity into smaller and more handy parts. During the development phase the initial problems are defined and methods how to solve them are established. When this is finalised, the detail design can start.

This methodology also introduces some robustness against changes in stakeholder requirements and also against other unpredictable disturbances that might occur during the project execution.


Växjö is a modern city with more than 80,000 inhabitants. The city has been declared "the Greenest City in Europe" because of its focus on environmentally sound solutions and the environmental programs implemented.

Being a student in Växjö you have easy access to everything – the city centre, the woods and the lakes. The pedestrian path from campus around Lake Växjösjön reaches almost all the way to the city centre and is perfect for jogging or taking long walks.

Campus Växjö is modeled along the lines of an American campus university and is the natural meeting place for students in Växjö. Campus is always bustling with life, and students move between lecture rooms, the University Library and the restaurants, pubs and outdoor recreational areas.
