Building the Design Observatory: a Core Instrument for Design Research

Carrizosa, K.; Eris, Ö.; Milne, A.; Mabogunje, A. // 2002
The "observe-analyse-intervene" method allows a complex system to be perturbed to deepen understanding and reveal hidden assumptions. Historically we have collected analogue audio and video ...

Classification of Design Research Documents

McMahon, C.; Culley, S.; Lowe, A. // 2002
Classification involves the development and use of schemes for the systematic organisation of knowledge (represented as information) (Langridge, 1992). The origins of modern approaches towards ...

Cleaning up Design Methods - Describing Methods Completely and Standardised

Birkhofer, H.; Kloberdanz, H.; Berger, B.; Sauer, T. // 2002
To improve the design process, it is aimed to optimise the description of design methods and the access to them for effective use in design projects and for better support of learning and teaching. ...

Colibri - A Collaborative Design System for Product Data Integration

Kleiner, S.; Anderl, R.; Gräb, R. // 2002
An extended parametric information model is presented in order to integrate product data based on parameters and constraints for design process reasons. Constraints represent parametric relations ...

Collaborative Engineering: 'Towards Design Guidelines for Risk Management in Distributed Software Development'

van Grinsven, J.; de Vreede, G.-J. // 2002

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.
