Abstract

The scope and organization of knowledge about design engineering and the technical systems being designed is presented in Design Science in a general form. The goal of designing is and should be to develop an optimal technical system for the envisaged conditions of use. This may (or may not) involve innovation and creativity.
In order to achieve individual properties (and their interactions and relationships) of specific technical systems, the knowledge about these specialized systems must be collected and categorized, preferably according to the master presented by Design Science. This can lead to applicable knowledge for designing – design for X (DfX). The leap from the abstract theories to application in engineering practice should be made as small as possible. Understanding and gradual introduction of the knowledge into engineering practice should be an important aim.
