Decision design and re-ordering preferences: The case of an exploration project in a large firm

Le Glatin, Mario; Le Masson, Pascal; Weil, Benoît // 2017
Decision theory has been long applied to project management for risk and uncertainty reduction. Among the foundations, the manager is considered following axioms describing his rationality; the most ...

Design for robustness - Systematic application of design guidelines to control uncertainty

Freund, Tillmann; Würtenberger, Jan; Lotz, Julian; Rommel, Carmen; Kirchner, Eckhard // 2017
In Robust Design literature, the application of Robust Design guidelines is suggested as a measure to obtain a design that is more insensitive against variations. But it lacks a detailed and ...

Development of a knowledge-based system for help in decision making: A medical application

Coton, Justine; Thomann, Guillaume; Villeneuve, François // 2017
A part of the work of a physiotherapist consists on analysing its patients’ motion capacities. In the case of motion analysis, some difficulties can hinder the evaluation process: attention can be ...

Dynamic modelling of relationships in complex service design systems

Hassannezhad, Mohammad; Cassidy, Steve; Clarkson, P. John // 2017
Today’s market conditions such as globalisation and digitalisation have made it challenging to design an effective service system that can efficiently balance organisational service capacity and ...

Empirical study of ill-supported activities in variation risk identification and assessment in early stage product development

Bjarklev, Kristian; Mortensen, Niels Henrik; Ebro, Martin // 2017
The purpose of this paper is to present findings from an industrial case study about the support of activities related to identifying and assessing variation-related issues in the design during the ...


Hall, Ashley; Kann, Michael Geoffrey; Ferrarello, Laura; Pulley, Robert // 2017
Encouraging creative risk to reduce risk to life explores how a collaborative, cross disciplinary design research and teaching methodology can provide a platform for tackling projects in the complex ...

Engineering design resource planning: A case study in identifying resource forecasting opportunities in research project planning

Holliman, Alexander; Thomson, Avril; Hird, Abigail // 2017

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.
