Abstract

The personal and professional history of Vladimir Hubka is outlined. The scope of science leads to typical research methods for design, and the triad ‘theory – subject – method’ connects a scientific or informal theory to a recommended method. Hubka initiated a body of formal scientific theory about technical systems, transformation processes, and engineering design processes. As a typical example, the development over time of the model of a transformation system is traced. The role of information is outlined, dividing it into object information and design process information, each with its theory and its applicable methods and heuristics. Engineering design science is placed into a hierarchy of sciences, the only developed design science.

Keywords: theory of technical systems, engineering design science, developments in time
