DESIGNING FOR PATIENT SAFETY : A REVIEW OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF DESIGN IN THE UK HEALTH SERVICE

Clarkson, P.J.; Buckle, P.; Stubbs, D.; Coleman, R.; Ward, J.; Kennedy-Martin, M. // 2004
The UK Department of Health commissioned a scoping study to deliver ideas and practical recommendations for a design approach to reduce the risk of medical error and improve patient safety across the ...

DEVELOPMENT OF MODULAR ACTUATOR SYSTEMS

Breidert, J.; Welp, E. G. // 2004
Aiming to decrease the development risk for the individual applications, the idea of a modular system for actuators with shape memory elements has arisen. The development of the modular actuator ...

INTEGRATING OPERATIONAL COMPLEXITY IN DESIGN PROCESSES AND IMPROVING DESIGN RISK IDENTIFICATION

Lauche, K.; Busby, J.S.; Bennett, S.A. // 2004
Simplifying strategies are useful and often necessary to make the design process tractable. They are also a generic human reaction to cope with complexity. Yet if a design is modified or put to use ...

MORE ON SYNTHESIS OF CONCEPTS AS AN OPTIMAL COMBINATION OF SOLUTION PRINCIPLES

Weiss, M.P.; Gilboa, Y. // 2004
The use of morphologic diagrams in the design of new products suffers from from a major shortcoming: the apparently unsolved problem of finding and designating the potentially better combinations of ...

NUMERICAL METHOD TO ESTIMATE TOLERANCES COMBINED EFFECTS ON A MECHANICAL SYSTEM

Cambiaghi, D.; Magalini, A.; Vetturi, D. // 2004
This contribution deals with a numerical method developed to estimate how the combined effects of several form and dimensional tolerances, to be applied on a mechanical structure, influence the final ...

Orientation support in product development

Dünser, T. // 2004
This paper presents instructions to support finding the best design step sequence for product development. Aiming at the detailed navigation questions of practical development, it can be seen as an ...

SIMULATING DESIGN PROCESSES TO INCREASE MANAGERS' UNDERSTANDING

O'Donovan, B.; Eckert, C.; Clarkson, P.J. // 2004
Beginning a design project is challenging. Managers need to understand where the risks lie in the new process. They need to plan tasks and allocate resources to them. Most products are designed by ...

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 ...

TRUSS DIMENSIONING WITH AN UNCERTAINTY REDUCTION PARADIGM

Yannou, B.; Hamdi, A. // 2004
Constraint Programming (CP) over reals are sophisticated evolutions of interval analysis well appropriate to model and propagate uncertainties between design and performance variables during the ...

EFFECTS THAT DEFEAT RISK REDUCING MEASURES

Busby, J. S.; Hughes, E. J. // 2003

SIGNPOSTING: MODELLING UNCERTAINTY IN DESIGN PROCESSES

O’Donovan, B. D.; Clarkson, P. J.; Eckert, C. M. // 2003

THE SIMULATED DESIGN PROCESS

O’Donovan, B. D.; Clarkson, P. J.; Eckert, C. M. // 2003

Collaborative Engineering: 'Towards Design Guidelines for Risk Management in Distributed Software Development'

van Grinsven, J.; de Vreede, G.-J. // 2002
Distributed software development activities require intense collaboration between groups who are scattered over geographically separated locations. While group-oriented software development has ...

Managing Uncertainty in the Design and Development Process by Appropriate Methods Selection

López-Mesa, B.; Thompson, G.; Williander, M. // 2002
Potentially, the numerous design methods generated for decades have much to offer in the complex multi-objective product design activity. However, the number of methods used in industry is relatively ...

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.
