Integrated Design Engineering is a holistic approach to create products of any kind. These are created in a human-centred way, as interests, issues, and needs of people involved in any product life cycle phase are respected. Attributes that don't fix realisation issues describe neutrally the required product performance. They result from needs, desires, expectations, and conditions in relation to the capabilities of users and from the environments where the product is created and to be used. Requirements to assure human centricity add to the requirements to realise the expected performance.
