DESIGN ENGINEERING PROCESS FROM CONTENT-BASED POINT OF VIEW

DESIGN ENGINEERING PROCESS FROM CONTENT-BASED POINT OF VIEW

Year: 2006

Section: MODELLING AND MANAGEMENT OF ENGINEERING PROCESSES WORKSHOP

Editor: Marjanovic, D.

Abstract

The paper introduces an empirical case of content-based approach to a real design engineering process in paper machine design. Content-based analysis is established by Saariluoma in 1990s. The design process is explained by analyzing the contents of thinking of individual engineers. Functional logic of the organizational culture guides the thinking processes of individual engineers. A new notion of a task definition window is introduced. We claim that approaching the total process through individual mental sceneries gives a positive contribution to the traditional design engineering research methodologies, to the methods of organizational management and even better understanding of the real nature of design engineering creativity.

Keywords: design engineering process, content-based design analysis, reconstruction, empirical design research, task definition window
