A decomposition approach to design information and knowledge issues for engineering design

A decomposition approach to design information and knowledge issues for engineering design

Year: 2004

Editor: S. Vajna

Author: Culley, S. J.; McMahon, C. A.

Abstract

A categorisation of the the Design Information and Knowledge (DIAK) domain has been established. This highlights 8 major areas that may be grouped into four views on the domain. This categorisation may be used to communicate and integrate the issues, to work globally and to plan and identify critical research areas. The information centric view arguably represents the overall information life cycle. The approach deals with not only the information life cycle but also user issues, technology issues and generic issues. The issue of ‘quality’ in information is an emerging new area and will be a critical part of new research initiatives. The various domain views illustrate the cross functional nature of the issues of managing design information and knowledge. The overall aim is to enable the development of a unified theory of design information and knowledge that will underpin and support the provision of appropriate and accurate information to engineering designers who are creating and embodying new products and systems
