Practical Block Course Technology Assessment in Aviation

The entrepreneurial decision to develop a new product presents a huge challenge and simultaneously brings considerable risks to a company , depending on the development and investment costs. Before the actual project launch, the relevant customer needs and preferences have to be identified and analyzed, which are frequently not well known a priori. Thus, they need to be anticipated in advance.

In this context, the practical course demonstrates major methods and techniques used in requirements elicitation and analysis, innovation management, and technology assessment that are frequently applied before the actual product development activities start. By using scenario planning techniques, a way of thinking in multiple, alternative future pictures is taught, enabling a better understanding of the future characteristics and needs of customers, a more profound evaluation of technological potentials, and eventually a more robust strategic decision-making. Apart from an advanced level of technological expertise, comprehensive knowledge about the target market and its properties is required. The practical course exemplarily focusses on the civil air transport market.
