Abstract

Being ahead means knowing the art of cultivating knowledge and making profit of what is already there. In terms of using methods this means; that it can’t be a researchers aim to reinvent the wheel; but it definitely must be the aim to widen the scope so that openness leads to an efficient use of established methods or approaches. Quality management methods like FMEA; FTA or others have been successfully used in development approaches of the last years and consequently; engineers are familiar with those methods. The problem is that they are in most cases used as stand-alonesolutions and the gained information is only merged in the experiences of the teams; or in case of different users; only put together in the documentation.

In terms of information being ahead means consistently using the information that is already produced. Hence; results are not just put together but merged; re-used; enhanced and cultivated to a continuously growing data pool.

As developing a product (including also non-hardware systems or services) is not a linear process - there are steps back; loops; simultaneous parts; concurrent ways or other events which makes it unpredictable - being ahead means also having the data prepared and accessible when necessary.
