Lloveras, J.; García-Delgado, C.; Claudí, L.; Segura, P. // 2004
"The essence of all innovation is a new idea. The course of Creative Formation targets to increase the possibilities to reach new ideas in the ideation phase of a design. The creativity has an ...

DECISION SUPPORT FOR STRATEGIC PARTNER SELECTION IN COLLABORATIVE DESIGN AND INNOVATION

Hacklin, F.; Marxt, C. // 2004
Strategic partner selection in collaborative design and innovation is an issue with currently high demand from industry. Our project partner is seeking for operational assistance and decision support ...

DESIGN FOR UTILITY, SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIETAL VIRTUES: DEVELOPING PRODUCT SERVICE SYSTEMS

McAloone, T.C.; Andreasen, M.M. // 2004
This paper focuses on Product Service System (PSS) development as a promising approach for sustainable product development. We attempt here to identify the nature of such a multiple definition of ...

Design informatology in IPE

Nándor, B. // 2004
Designing an object of the physical-material world, for fulfilling its certain function, has a professional, logical process from recognizing the problem to produce the object as the solution. The ...

DESIGN PROCESS FOR HIGH LOADED FRICTION SYSTEMS WITH ADVANCED CERAMICS

Albers, A.; Stuffer, A.; Arslan, A. // 2004
New outperforming engineering materials like advanced ceramics tend to fail when using the ordinary design process. Excerpts from the adapted design process of high loaded friction systems with high ...

EXTENDING THE C-K DESIGN THEORY TO PROVIDE THEORETICAL BACKGROUND FOR PERSONAL DESIGN ASSISTANTS

Kazakci, A. O.; Tsoukias, A. // 2004
We show that to operationalise the C-K design theory in the form of a computational tool, a third space, the environment space E, must be introduced. We propose such a version, the C/K/E theory by ...

INFLUENCE OF PITCH ERRORS ON LOAD DISTRIBUTION ON SPUR INVOLUTE HCR GEARS TEETH

Franulovic, M.; Krizan, B.; Lovrin, N. // 2004
High contact ratio (HCR) gears are more frequently in use because of their increased load-carrying capacity compared to low contact ratio gears, although they are very sensitive to manufacturing ...

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.
