What we do

Within the Fieldlab UPPS it is possible to collect 3D data and subject it to extensive analyses, to study parametric design techniques and flexible production techniques and ultimately also to evaluate the ultra-personalized products and processes in a lab setting. 

To discover what the next step can be for a new generation of personalized products, companies and professionals can get advice on personalized designs and explanations about what it all involves. 

Students and experts from the Industrial Design Engineering department work together with professionals on advanced UPPS projects.

What’s in it for me? 

Particpants can make use of the facilities and expertise within the Fieldlab. In addition, the government finances 50% of the project costs to make participation by companies and design professionals attractive. The remaining 50% of the costs can (partly) be contributed ‘in kind’, for example by contributing hours of the entrepreneur. In this way, participants can carry out projects and develop knowledge in a cost-effective manner.

Experimenting and sharing knowledge.

The opportunities for Ultra Personalization of products and services are great, but they are not yet known to most Dutch entrepreneurs and designers. The Fieldlab wants to let entrepreneurs’ experiment and help them accelerate developments, but also inspire other entrepreneurs and creative professionals by sharing the results. Therefore, we show the ‘demonstrators’ developed within the Fieldlab to a wider audience and share the knowledge on a platform.

Do you want to know more about a possible approach, or do you have questions like:

  • Is a UPPS feasible for my company?
  • Does a UPPS give me a unique market position or commercial advantages?
  • How can I personalize my product?
  • How do I know which 3D data to use for my UPPS?
  • How do I design a UPPS?
  • How do I design the workflow around a UPPS?
  • Feasibility: what is the right UPPS level for my product?
  • How do I combine data and design to a production-ready product?
  • How do I design my production chain?
