Designing Design, invited paper from Polish Academy of Science

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Ongoing work at the University of Strathclyde to model, control and improve the design development process is presented. Design Co-ordination has stimulated a number of initiatives to facilitate and support design development performance improvement. Ten elemental frames are discussed and a number of approaches for designing design outlined. Two computer based coordination systems have been used in industrial case studies with savings of up to 64% in process execution time and 45% resource cost reduction. Improvement needs can be identified and used as a basis for continuous improvement through re-design; craft, parametric and process optimisation. Significant improvements have been witnessed in industrial practice and processes optimised with an iteration criteria reduction of up to 83%. Future research will attempt to consolidate the work into a holistic approach to designing design and performance improvement.
