Abstract

A core issue in integrating CAD and CAE environments is the coexistence of different perspectives: a topological one in embodiment design and a functional one in simulation. This places increasing demands on human communication. The paper claims that reflecting communication - triggering active thinking about communication as well as mirroring perceptions of designers collaborating at interfaces - is a key factor for successful collaboration. For this purpose, a maturity grid-inspired approach to diagnose the current and desired state of communication between design and simulation engineers in the car body development is presented. Results include lack of overview of the sequence of tasks in the design process, reflection and understanding of information needs.

Keywords: human behaviour in design, human communication, design process improvement, CAD/CAE, collaboration, industrial case study
