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.
