Abstract

Continuous improvement of design processes is a necessity. Our objective is to stimulate designers to improve their own process by reflecting on their design process. Reflection has already proven to be useful for improving, for example, the learning process of managers. Studying the usefulness of reflection for designing received, however, little attention. In the paper, we explore possibilities of reflection for improving design processes. More specific, we investigate the possibilities of structured reflection; we define structured reflection as reflection that is performed on a regular basis and that is performed in a systematic way. We also discuss a model that integrates structured reflection in a design process.
