Design Typology and Design Organisation
The aim is the creation of a design typology, which can serve as identification of design types and design research contributions. A typology has been proposed earlier and here clarified. It consists of 4 sub-typologies, from which the design operation typology (showing 6 main views) is elaborated and illustrated by examples. A basic feature is to view both the designs and the design machinery (organisation) as design objects and to focus upon this machinery’s ability to posses experience and learning ability. Future work shall justify this conceptual stage proposal.
