The relevance and use of a taxonometric design method in architectural education is discussed. Based on and nourished by the (architectural) (re-)design process, which is considered a complex ...

REACHING THE COST TARGET - CURRENT STATUS IN SMEs

Nissl, A.; Lindemann, U. // 2004
Many companies apply the method of Target Costing in order to offer products with an optimal cost-performance ratio. Due to this method, every decision within the product development process has to ...

REALITIES IN INTERDISCIPLINARY SYSTEMS DESIGN

Kaljas, Frid; Kallo, Rommi; Reedik, Vello // 2004
It is obvious that the integration of different technologies into interdisciplinary systems cannot be treated as their simple summing but as a way of compensating their mutual weaknesses and ...

SELECTING AND COMBINING METHODS FOR COMPLEX PROBLEM SOLVING WITHIN THE DESIGN PROCESS

Franke, H.-J.; Deimel, M. // 2004
The paper describes two approaches to select easily methods for the support of single working steps within the design process. Further, it is essential for the desired support of the entire process, ...

SIMULATION IN PRODUCT DESIGN: AN ITERATIVE QUESTION-ANSWER DRIVEN PROCESS

Andersson, K. // 2004
In order to support a question-answer driven simulation process, a design process model capable of describing problem statements, model specifications, simulation models and problem answers as ...

STUDY OF THE DESIGNER’S COGNITIVE PROCESSES DURING THE LATER PHASES OF THE MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DESIGN PROCESS

Motte, D.; Andersson, P.-E.; Bjärnemo, R. // 2004
An increasing number of studies have been focusing on the cognitive abilities and limitations of the designer during the design process, yet thus far only for the conceptual design phase. This paper ...

TEAM DESIGN PROCESS FOR A 6X6 ALL-ROAD WHEELCHAIR

Fauroux, J-C.; Charlat, S.; Limenitakis, M. // 2004

THE BENEFITS OF PREDICTING CHANGE IN COMPLEX PRODUCTS: APPLICATION AREAS OF A DSM-BASED PREDICTION TOOL

Jarratt, T.; Eckert, C.; Clarkson, P.J. // 2004
Most designers struggle to fully understand a complex product. Throughout the entire life cycle of a product engineers are frequently required to predict how changes could propagate. Currently, few ...

THE GAP BETWEEN LEARNING AND APPLYING DESIGN METHODS

Jänsch, J.F.P.; Birkhofer, H. // 2004
Teaching design methods with the result of producing competent designers is a complex challenge. It is important to impart the aims of a design method, which consist of the effects of the design ...

THE IMPACT OF CULTURAL ASPECTS ON THE DESIGN PROCESS

Felgen, L.; Grieb, J.; Lindemann, U.; Pulm, U.; Chakrabati, A.; Vijaykumar, G. // 2004
Due to increasing globalisation, the development of products is no longer restricted to one place, it is more and more characterised by distributed design teams, who work in different places, time ...

THE LURE OF THE MEASURABLE IN DESIGN RESEARCH

Eckert, C.; Clarkson, P.J.; Stacey, M.K. // 2004
Beginning design research projects by defining success criteria, judged by numerical measurements, is a very attractive idea. But defining a priori success criteria is problematic, as is using ...

THE STRATEGY - DESIGN ALIGNMENT: WHICH GUIDELINES TO ENSURE COHERENCE BETWEEN STRATEGIC THINKING AND DESIGN PROCESS

Mira-Bonnardel, S. // 2004
The intention of this paper is to understand how strategic objectives of a company really interact with operational objectives of the company’s design process. The question is: how to guide design in ...

TIN TIN, TOPOGRAPHICAL MAPS AND WHISKEY: THE 'CULTURAL CAPITAL' OF DESIGN STUDENTS

Strickfaden, M. // 2004
Each individual inherently gathers and retains cultural information throughout their lives. This can be utilized as inspiration during the design process and even becomes embedded in designed ...

TOWARD A DATA MATURITY EVALUATION IN COLLABORATIVE DESIGN PROCESSES

Saint-Marc, L.; Callot, M.; Reyterou, C.; Moly, M.; Girard, P.; Deschamps, J-C. // 2004
This paper concerns the engineering data exchange control. It proposes to define a data evaluation system based on the concept of "data maturity" in order to control the design ...

TREATMENT OF DECISION SITUATIONS IN THE DESIGN PROCESS

Höhne, G. // 2004
During the design process different decision situations arise at planning, managing and problem solving procedures. The aim of this contribution is to characterise the content and the characteristic ...

VIRTUAL PROTOTYPING IN EARLY DESIGN PHASES TO DEVELOP ULTRA PRECISE MACHINES

// 2004
The paper presents an approach and innovative initial results of virtual prototyping for the development of ultra precise positioning and measuring machines in a changing market The basic concept is ...

VIRTUAL PROTOTYPING OF POSITIONING AND MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS FOR HIGHEST PRECISION APPLICATIONS

Höhne, G.; Brix, T.; Lotz, M. // 2004
The paper presents concepts for a computer-based design of positioning and measuring ma-chines as virtual prototypes to support a phase-overlapping multi-stage design. The basic con-cept is the ...

ASSESSING INCLUSIVITY THROUGHOUT THE DESIGN PROCESS

Cardoso, C.; Keates, S.; Clarkson, P. J. // 2003

Boolean Searches

The following examples demonstrate some search strings that use boolean operators:

  • design community
    Find rows that contain at least one of the two words.
  • +design +community
    Find rows that contain both words.
  • +design community
    Find rows that contain the word “design”, but rank rows higher if they also contain “community”.
  • +design -community
    Find rows that contain the word “design” but not “community”.
  • +design ~community
    Find rows that contain the word “design”, but if the row also contains the word “community”, rate it lower than if row does not.
  • +design +(>community <decisions)
    Find rows that contain the words “design” and “community”, or “design” and “decisions” (in any order), but rank “design community” higher than “design decisions”
  • design*
    Find rows that contain words such as “design”, “designs”, “designing”, or “designer”.
  • "some words"
    Find rows that contain the exact phrase “some words” (for example, rows that contain “some words of wisdom” but not “some noise words”). Note that the " characters that enclose the phrase are operator characters that delimit the phrase. They are not the quotation marks that enclose the search string itself.
