Effective change management is a key to successful design development. As products and parts of products change, others can be affected, leading to further - often unexpected and costly - changes. ...

IDRAK: SUPPORTING DIGITAL SOCIALIZATION IN ENGINEERING DESIGN PROJECTS

El-Tayeh, A.N.; Gil, N. // 2006
Engineering design projects are delivered by temporary organizations that bring together a group of firms from the early design stages. Exchanges of tacit knowledge across firms’ boundaries through ...

INFLUENCE OF DIFFERENT GEAR LOAD MODELS ON CRACK PROPAGATION PREDICTIONS

Podrug, S.; Jelaska, D. // 2006
In conventional fatigue models of the gear tooth root it is usual to approximate actual gear load with pulsating force acting in the highest point of the single tooth contact. However, in actual gear ...

INNOVATIVE LIGHTWEIGHT AIRCRAFT DESIGN – A STUDENT COMPETITION

Deubel, T.; Köhler, C.; Wanke, S.; Weber, C. // 2006
University education often focuses on a sound theoretical education at the expense of practical experience due to time limitations. Nevertheless it is important to train essential technical problem ...

PROJECT GUIDE: A TOOL TO SUPPORT THE REALIZATION OF INDUSTRIAL WORKSHOPS IN THE EARLY PHASES OF DESIGN ENGINEERING

Weiss, S.; Birkhofer, H. // 2006
The paper presents a tool called ‘project guide’. It is about an information platform which supports the workshop moderator on its course with regard to various views. This approach bases on ...

Welp, E.G.; Labenda, P.; Jansen, S. // 2006
The today's engineer needs consolidated technical and methodological knowledge as well as a multitude of "metadisciplinary" or soft skills. The shift to team work and crossfunctional ...

THE COST OF INTERNAL VARIETY: A NON-LINEAR OPTIMIZATION MODEL

Nowak, T.; Chromniak, M. // 2006
Manufacturing oriented design methodologies (e.g. Design for Manufacturing and Assembly, Design to Cost) enable engineers to create product designs which can be manufactured at low cost and with ...

THE DESIGN OF SCIENCE BASED PRODUCTS: AN INTERPRETATION AND MODELLING WITH C-K THEORY

Hatchuel, A.; Le Masson, P.; Weil, B. // 2006
The paper addresses the design of Science Based Products (SBPs): these products need the efficient introduction of scientific research within the design process, as well as functional and testing ...

THE PROTO-THEORY OF DESIGN: THE METHOD OF ANALYSIS OF THE ANCIENT GEOMETERS

Koskela, L.J.; Kagioglou, M. // 2006
It is contended that the ancient method of analysis and synthesis, developed originally by Greek geometers, provides a proto-theory of design, which unfortunately has largely been forgotten in the ...

USING SIMILARITY RATIOS FOR FINDING, EVALUATING AND OPTIMIZING PRINCIPLE SOLUTIONS

Deimel, M.; Franke, H.-J. // 2006
The paper shows that similarity ratios support holistically the methodical synthesis of solutions. Partial solutions can be described and selected on the basis of dimensionless characteristics. The ...

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.
