Abstract

New designs are examined in the context of existing designs. General features of similarity are outlined. Similarities are distinguished according to both the type of design activity and the type of design description. Five layers; component, manufacture, product, process and knowledge are identified. Similarities on individual layers and those induced between layers are analysed. This analysis contributes to planning design as well as the use of designs and associated processes in product development.
