- Question 2 was bad. It is hard to write about 10 topic reports in 2 pages and get you to see that I actually read (and understood) the reports. And their was to much concentration and deep-going on small subjects. There should be atleast some question about agregate project plan and the funnels. » (To some extent)
- Some questions to detailed, like the stage gate model for Volvo and Ericson. I thought it would be more of a general understanding. Also, some people had written a report on stage-gate process, which is unfair then to give 6p of questions on that area.» (To some extent)
- better with short exams during the quarter instead of a final exam. topic report and case study was very good.» (To some extent)
- Five questions isn"t enough to cover the course goals. More questions with shorter answers required would be appreciated» (To some extent)

- The Course book was good.» (Large extent)
- The course literature seemed a bit out of date. Maybe a discussion in class about the parts of the book that aren"t "valid" today could be helpful. » (Large extent)
- Good lecture slides. Even though the book, W&C, was very good, it might be nice with examples and studies that didn"t occur two decades ago. Even though they might be very relevant today, more updated examples would give a better insight.» (Large extent)

- But everything is old information for students from the Mechanichal Engineering program. It is like the third or fourth time we hear this. Should not be a mandatory course for us.» (Good)
- Lars Trygg is a good lecturer and his lecture is nice, however it"s hard to know what"s important in the course and what to focus on.» (Good)
- I really think it is a good introduction to product development and it certainly gives the outlines and some of the details of how to lead a R&D project.» (Excellent)
- Definitely the best course I have taken at Chalmers, Lars did a great job!» (Excellent)
- I really really enjoyed this course. It made me even more sure I chose the right master program.» (Excellent)
- Interesting content, great literature and good layout in general of the course» (Excellent)
- Relevant areas for a mechanical engineer in product development» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The administration and how the topic reports were evaluated, ask general questions on the topics not the methods used.»
- The case was good, however I think a practice case before hand would"ve made the learning more efficient. Just a small demonstration of how to analyze a case would be good.»
- The lectures.»
- Most of the content»
- The pedagogical structures in the lectures. And the lean development game should still be optional, so that only the ones truly interested will go.»
- The course structure»
- lars trygg»
- Literature Review»
- W&C»
- The literature reviews.»
- lars»
- The literature reviews. They were real good and got me started early on the reading.»
- I think the litterature reviews were good. To bad very few went to them.»
- The book and lectures. »
- The LPD game»
- The lean game»
- Keep up with the good lectures, because the book isn"t that good to explain things in the same compact way.»
- topic report case study»
- Examples from many different companies lean development game »
- The topic reports.»
- Eveything»
- The lectures and the lean development game. »
- The fact that some of the seminars were non mandatory.»
- Schedule, Very good interaction and communication»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The appliead materials case could be different it was very boring to read and hand in, but a good review in class thou.»
- The deadline for the topic reports could be a week before so you"d have more time to read them. Also some of the literature reviews should be mandatory so you get going with reading the book.»
- The boring presentations. Student presentations that are not graded separately are always boring, bad and ill prepared.»
- Improve the administration when it comes to handling the different groups (my group had three different numbers....). Be more precise with which things that are mandatory and not. Promote the literature reviews, dont complain to the students for not participating in the optional aspects of the course.»
- The course text book!»
- SCA-föreläningen va inge bra. Bra tanke, mrn välj ett mer passande företag för att höja engagemanget... inte blöjor»
- Byt ut gammal fakta som är på pp- slidsen. Den största delen av materialet är från början av 90 -talet. Känns inte så trovärdigt, borde ha hänt väldigt mkt på nästan 20 år.»
- The literature»
- literature reviews»
- The topic reports. Writing an 8-pages report on 6-7 people is not optimal and didn"t contribute to my learning.»
- The book has to be avilibel at cremona»
- Maybe the book if there is any better.»
- final exam»
- literature review, if people failed to attend was because they thought it was not necessary or that they couldn"t get much from it»
- The SCA-lecture wasn"t very informative unless you were interested in working at SCA or investing in stock shares from SCA. The book should definitely be complemented with more up-to-date material to highlight changes that have happened during the last 20 years.»
- I am not currently interested of working at SCA, nor am I, or plan to become, a stockholder of that company. Neither am I especially interested in their products. To sum it up, the SCA lecture didn"t give me anything. However, I would have appreciated an insight in their R&D work.»
- How the literature reviews are carried out. »
- Avaialabilty of text books in library. Need more books of Wheel and Wrights.»

16. Additional comments

- Would have been vary interesting, learning, stimulating and nice to have Håkan Mild as a guest lecturer next year. He could talk about Product Development att IFK Göteborg and their Änglagården. Håkan Mild for presedent!»
- I know that some students have complained that this period is a heavy one. I cannot really agree with them, I think the workload have been just enough to feel like you perform well at school and have a social life.»
- Not having exam questions where some groups already have an advantage in that subject. Some questions become unfair. »
- I think more student would have joind the litterature reviews if the answers wouldnt had a deadline of beeing handed in 24h before the lecture. »
- I really liked the class»
- Enjoyed the course. Very practical»
