STUDY OF THE EVOLUTION OF INTEGRATED DESIGN
The ""DESIGN"" concept defines a large field that holds many topics. In this paper we are interested by the evolution of the corresponding sub-concepts in order to get an understanding on what is going on today in design. The proposed approach lies on the systematic analysis of various international conferences. We also consider the major reviews and journals related to design such as Computer-Aided Design, Journal of mechanical design and many others. Our proposition, presents a global overview that shows the time-evolution of the topics, the density production, the geographic evolution, the emerging areas and concepts. We show then that some topics remain with a great interest and other are in a decreasing period.
