Marco Bertoni - Bio
I am Professor in Mechanical Engineering and Deputy Head of Department for the Mechanical Engineering subject. I am member of the Design Society and I co-chair the Special Interest Group in ‘Design of Product-Service Systems’.
I graduated in Management Engineering at the University of Bergamo (UniBG) in Italy in 2004, and I earned a Doctoral Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico of Milano (PoliMI) in 2008. The same year I joined Luleå University of Technology as postdoctoral fellow, becoming Associate Professor (Docent) in Product Innovation in 2012. Since April 2013 I work at Blekinge Institute of Technology,
My research focuses on model-driven decision making for product/service design. I have experience with:
- Methods and tools for engineering product design, design thinking and need finding techniques.
- Computer Aided Design, Computer Aided Engineering and Computer Aided Innovation tools.
- Enterprise Collaboration, Knowledge Management and Knowledge Engineering approaches.
- Systems Engineering and requirements elicitation practices.
- Multi Attribute Decision Making models for design concept selection.
- Monetary assessment models for investment analysis (cost/value models).
- Business Process Reengineering and associated models for process representation.
I am member of the Scientific Committee for:
- International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED)
- CIRP Industrial Product Service Systems (CIRP IPSS) conference.
- International CAD Conference (CAD)
- International Conference on Research into Design (ICORD)
- International DESIGN conference
- APMS Conference
- ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference (IDETC/CIE)
- International Conference Advances in Production Management Systems (APMS)
