This article describes one of the research studies carried out by LEMA, the Laboratory for the Study of Architectural Methodology, on the representation of the design process in architectural design. ...

Strategic Design: a Design Method to Manage the Design Framework

Taura, T.; Shiose, T.; Awaji, M. // 2002
In engineering design, it is thought that the designer repeats two steps: to establish the problem framework for generating the design solution and to search for and generate design solutions within ...

Structured Reflection for Improving Design Processes

Reymen, I. M. M. J.; Hammer, D. K. // 2002
Continuous improvement of design processes is a necessity. Our objective is to stimulate designers to improve their own process by reflecting on their design process. Reflection has already proven to ...

Surface Design in Virtual Reality as Industrial Application

Fiorentino, M.; de Amicis, R.; Stork, A.; Monno, G. // 2002
The authors present SpaceDesign, a computer-aided styling application addressed to the early stages of the design process. Virtual Reality devices are used for expressing first design ideas in an ...

Task Design and Task Analysis for Empirical Studies into Design Activity

Bender, B.; Kammerer, U.; Pietzcker, F.; Blessing, L. T. M.; Hacker, W. // 2002
In many laboratory studies, design activity has been investigated by observing individual designers or design teams dealing with standardised design tasks. The results are valuable for a better ...

Terms and Measures for Styling Properties

Podehl, G. // 2002
The integration of styling work into the overall product development process is still not sufficiently achieved. Engineering and styling use different concepts and terminologies. Both areas are ...

The Importance of Corporate Culture in Collaborative Product Design

Marxt, C. // 2002
Due to the increasing complexity of technologies and products, the search for new know-how as well as the shortening of development cycle times a lot of companies collaborate in (new) product design. ...

The Influences of Organisation on Leadership in the Design Process: Results of an Investigation in Five Industrial Companies

Lüdcke, R.; Birkhofer, H. // 2002
The concept of leadership is closely bonded with the concept of organization: one defines and influences the other. The consequences and situations in which these problems arise are shown in this ...

Using of 3-D Parametrical Blocking Contours for Optimizing External Cylindrical Gear Drives on a "Geometrical Level"

Nenov, P.; Anguelova, A.; Kaloyanov, B. // 2002
Always when the operating gear center distance is not specified, the modern design process of a gear drive with optimal parameters could start by creating a 3-D model of it parametrical blocking ...

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.
