Abstract

The paper presents research on the analysis of student design project documentation. The goal was to investigate, what information can be extracted in order to allow for conclusions on the application of procedures and product development methods. The motivation was to gain feedback for design education and enable information reuse in new design projects. Several obstacles were identified resulting from the nature of the project documentation, which only represents the real process to a certain degree. As an outcome however, a view on the projects on three different levels of detail could be generated: procedure, task and method level. From the preliminary analysis, important insights and guidelines for a larger investigation were derived.

Keywords: design education, student projects, design process, product development methods, process analysis
