Abstract

In order to support today’s digital, knowledge-driven and highly distributed design activities there is a fundamental requirement to improve the means by which design researchers observe industry practice, evaluate tools and methods, and assesses the state-of-the-art. A prerequisite for this is the ability to undertake more holistic investigation, perform controlled experiments, and capture, analyse and organise experimental data. To begin to address these issues the creation of an intelligent design observatory is proposed and the issues associated with designing the environment, monitoring and recording design activities, data processing and analysis, observation and measurement, and an appropriate experimental methodology are discussed.

Keywords: design process, design teams, design performance, observational studies, observational studies, experimental data, experimental methodology

DESIGN 2008 - 10th International Design ConferenceDESIGN 2008 Conference was founded on the continuous development of organization and evaluation procedure that resulted in a capacity to deliver procedures and conditions of communicative competence. To assist the process of development for the engineering design research community the organizers of DESIGN 2008 propsed seven core areas for the conference as described below. It was required explicitly from all contributors to show how they are contributing to the overall area to emerge communities...
