Abstract

Creativity tools can help engineers to mobilize all their technical knowledge to find technological solutions, but they cannot engender the exact solution, so we think it is possible to improve designer’s creativity by expanding their access to information. Scanning and monitoring the environment will help engineers to know what is happening outside their enterprise and competitive intelligence will permit proactivity by acting on the environment. Our approach wants to be practical and allows better integrating of creativity’s process in the early phases of the new product design process.
