EXPERIENCES FROM THE TRANSFORMATION OF AN ENGINEERING EDUCATION INTRODUCTORY PROJECT DESIGN COURSE INTO A PROJECT DESIGN-BUILD-TEST COURSE

// 2004
This paper describes the changes made to an introductory course in Mechanical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology to transform it from a project design course into a project ...

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 ...

Eder, W. E.; Hosnedl, S. // 2004
This paper presents the authors' opinions on the nature of information in order to explore a consistent set of terminology for this area. The contents of information can concern tangible objects ...

INTRODUCTION OF THE INTEGRATED PRODUCT POLICY IN SMALL AND MEDIUM-SIZED ENTERPRISES

Hessling, T.; Lindemann, U. // 2004
In the last years a new environment strategy was developed by the European commission, which is called „Integrated Product Policy“ or IPP. Within this political process the Bavarian government ...

IPD questions of theory and practice in hungary

Vidovics, B.; Bercsey, T. // 2004
Technology, more precisely the technology space involving machine design is, on one side, part of the human culture, on the other side, culture shaping potential. It is a characteristic of creative ...

MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF INFORMATION FLOWS IN DESIGN AND EDUCATION

Miki, H.; Kakuda, Y.; Kikuchi, M. // 2004
Education seems to be closely parallel to design. In design activities, we try to seek a solution of design by which we can produce entities according to specifications. Similarly in educational ...

MODELLING OF PRODUCT-SERVICE SYSTEMS (PSS) BASES ON THE PDD APPROACH

Weber, C.; Steinbach, M.; Botta, C.; Deubel, T. // 2004
The term “Product-Service Systems” (PSSs) was recently coined for products consisting of material components as well as services (non-material components). They are of increasing interest from a ...

MODELLING THE PROCESS OF CREATING A MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING IN DISTRIBUTED DESIGN TEAMS

Ruiz-Dominguez, G.; Boujut, J-F. // 2004
Cooperation is an important issue in design teamwork. This paper is an attempt to contribute a theoretical framework through the modelling of the process of creating a mutual understanding during ...

MODELS, METHODOLOGY AND FINDING FOCUS: DEALING WITH THE CHALLENGES OF PhD RESEARCH

Flanagan, T.L.; Jänsch, J.F.P. // 2004
This paper discusses the summer school on engineering design research from a student perspective. The two-week course is aimed at postgraduate students who have completed 30-40% of their planned ...

MULTIPLE ATTRIBUTE DECISION MAKING TOWARDS MOST ACCEPTABLE VARIANT SOLUTION

Kljajin, M.; Ivandic, Z.; Kozak, D. // 2004
Modern product development concept is based on the product as a technical system. Developed model in this paper connects the product as a technical system and designer. Different models of decision ...

New developments in Fontys IPE-Projects

van Schenk Brill, D.; Kater, K. // 2004
Since 1995 IPD-projects have been carried out at the Fontys University of Higher Education. IPD stands for Integrated Product Development. In general the structure of those projects does not differ ...

OBJECT-ORIENTED PRODUCT MODELING FOR EARLY ASSEMBLY COST ESTIMATION

Giannoulis, D.; Welp, E. G. // 2004
Although an early assembly cost estimation can lead to decreased manufacturing cost, existent methods do not support sufficiently such an estimation. Therefore, an object-oriented product-modeling ...

ON THE SUPERIORITY OF OPPORTUNISTIC DESIGN STRATEGIES DURING EARLY EMBODIMENT DESIGN

Bender, B.; Blessing ,L. // 2004
The prescriptive tradition of German Design Methodology has been challenged by the results of empirical research showing that strict hierarchical approaches can hardly be found in real design ...

PHOTOELASTIC RESEARCH OF THE HERTZIAN STRESS IN HCR-GEARS

Lovrin, N.; Krizan, B.; Franulovic, M. // 2004
This paper deals with the analysis of the Hertzian stress in high transverse contact ratio (HCR) gearing. Based on the realistic load distribution on tooth pairs in mesh and using our own method, the ...

PLATFORMS AND ARCHITECTURES

Hansen, Poul Kyvsgaard; Mikkola, Jullana Hsuan // 2004
This paper discusses the use and usage of the concepts of platforms and architectures. We provide some clarification about the relationship between platform and product architectures. Our on-going ...

PROVIDING EXAMPLES FOR STUDENTS AND DESIGNERS

Sauer, T.; Wiildele, M.; Birkhofer, H. // 2004
Methodogical development involves a range of different design methods which aim at supporting designers in finding solutions to a given task. Some of them focus on the mapping of given requirements ...

REFLECTIONS ABOUT REFLECTIVE PRACTICE

Eder, W. E.; Hubka, V. // 2004
Reflection is an essential characteristic of designing, but only a part of that process. Few attempts have been made to specify what questions should be useful in reflection. This paper brings the ...

Systematic process engineering and ist application in product planning

Weigt, M.; Seidel, M. // 2004
Current industrial products are characterised by increasing complexity, quality requirements, and a high level of specialisation. To stay competitive in today’s markets, a substantial improvement of ...

SYSTEMATIZATION OF DESIGN PROBLEMS BY GRAPH THEORY

Yoshikawa, S.; Minami, M. // 2004
A graph-theory-based systematization method of design problems has been proposed aiming at carrying over obtained engineering knowledge in constructions of large-scale systems. This method focuses ...

TEACHING DESIGN THEORY AND PRACTICE: A PARTICIPATORY JOURNEY

Loi, D. // 2004
This paper discusses through a case study the use of Participatory Design and Cultural Probes in teaching and learning activities. The paper is divided in four sections. The first provides a ...

THE DESIGN OF ELECTRONIC MEDIA-BASED ACTIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCES

Brungart, J. // 2004
The tradition of classroom learning materials among Western cultures-structured sequentially and focused on the representation of theories and classification of concepts in the absence of direct ...

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.
