Physual Designing - Approaching Design through the Interaction Space

Kristensen, K.; Hildre, H. P.; Sivertsen, O. I.; Fyhn, H.; Storler, K. // 2002
Engineering designers utilize and depend on both their physical surroundings and different technology-based generic and engineering-specific tools, in order to be effective. Hence, they “orchestrate” ...

Product Modelling in Early Phases of the Design Process

Korpela, T. // 2002
Product modelling help the designer to communicate about the design problem with his/her colleagues. Models help also the designer to understand entirely the problem to be solved. Aims of the ...

Real Experiences of Virtual Worlds

Ucelli, G.; Conti, G.; Petric, J.; Maver, T. W. // 2002
The JCAD-VR framework is implemented to anticipate the use of VR within the creation phase of the design process. It creates simple parametric 3D-shapes directly in a co-edit VR environment, thus ...

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.
