Due to the evermore growing digitization in engineering, the term data-driven engineering has evolved over the last years. Yet, there is no unified definition of the term. The presented research is based on a literature review as well as an industrial case study. First, a literature-based distinction between related terms was investigated. Then, based on an industrial workshop, a definition was developed. The presented findings provide a consistent definition as well as insights on potentials of data-driven engineering and very concrete use-cases for data-driven engineering.

Keywords: data driven design, use-phase data, product development, design process, internet of things (IoT)
