Abstract
Product creation is facing the next level of fundamental changes. Global demands are growing substantially to achieve energy efficient and sustainable value creation networks for production, products and services without compromising traditional success factors such as time to market, cost and quality. To stay competitive within such an environment development partners in industry and public sectors will require new interplay solutions for engineering design execution, domain knowledge representation, expert competence utilization and digital assistance systems. Competition in engineering design is characterized by actors and stakeholders such as designers, engineers, OEMs, suppliers, or engineering service providers, by technical targets and economic factors within the field of application, and by higher level needs of regional and global environments and social equity. To face such challenges, new roles in engineering design have to be implemented in organizations and development projects. Otherwise new engineering design methods will lack deployment in industrial practice and finally fail. This paper addresses the need for selected new engineering job roles to deploy former made achievements in engineering design. The focused roles are "PSS Architect", "Sustainability Mentor", and "Virtual Product Creation Engineer". Within the contribution requirements on teaching and the industrial deployment of the new job roles in a global engineering environment are presented.
