Modellierung und Prognose von Entwicklungs- und Recyclingkosten in frühen Entwicklungsphasen

Hellenbrand, David; Kissel, Maximilian; Rohloff, Jonathan; Lindemann, Udo // 2011
Due to a rising number of variants and a decreasing number of sold items per unit indirect costs like development or recycling costs gain more importance. Existing cost estimation approaches do not ...

ON THE EFFECTIVE USE OF DESIGN-BY-ANALOGY: THE INFLUENCES OF ANALOGICAL DISTANCE AND COMMONNESS OF ANALOGOUS DESIGNS ON IDEATION PERFORMANCE

Cagan, Jonathan; Chan, Joel; Fu, Katherine; Schunn, Christian; Wood, Kristin; Kotovsky, Kenneth // 2011
Design-by-analogy is a powerful method for innovation, particularly during conceptual ideation, but also carries the risk of negative design outcomes (e.g., design fixation, risk aversion), depending ...

ON THE TYPES AND ROLES OF DEMONSTRATORS FOR DESIGNING MEDICAL DEVICES

Herman, Benoît; Sapin, Julien; Tran Duy, Khanh; Raucent, Benoît // 2011
Unlike many fields that make the most of advances in numerical modeling and simulation, actors involved in medical technologies R&D have more and more recourse to demonstrators when designing a ...

RE-CONCEPTUALISING VALUE IN ENGINEERING DESIGN PROCESS: THE VALUE CYCLE MAP

Introducing "Cheaper, Faster, Better" product in today's highly competitive market is a challenging target. Therefore, for organizations to improve their performance, they need to ...

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR RISK IDENTIFICATION METHOD SELECTION ACCORDING TO PRODUCT DESIGN AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT MATURITY, PRODUCT INNOVATION DEGREE AND PROJECT TEAM

Grubisic, Viviane & Vasconcellos Ferreira; Ogliari, André; Gidel, Thierry // 2011
No other type of project is in greater need of risk management than new product development projects. This is due, largely, to the innovative profile of such projects and, consequently, of the risks ...

SELECTION OF PHYSICAL EFFECTS BASED ON DISTURBANCES AND ROBUSTNESS RATIOS IN THE EARLY PHASES OF ROBUST DESIGN

Mathias, Johannes; Kloberdanz, Hermann; Eifler, Tobias; Engelhardt, Roland; Wiebel, Marion; Birkhofer, Herbert; Bohn, Andrea // 2011
Within this paper products are called robust, if uncertainties (property variations and disturbances) from production and use have no or little influence on the result during the use. In order to ...

Shape Language Describes More Than the Body

Langeveld,Lau ; Wiegers,Tjamme // 2011
The design of products involves the whole design process from Design Research to a product. The uncertainty becomes certainty during the design process. Product models have functional relations ...

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.
