Abstract

Design models are an essential means for abstract representation and visualisation of information in the design process. Comprehension of design models in interdisciplinary engineering design teams is often hindered by different terminology and different discipline-specific modelling approaches. This paper presents the results of an interview study conducted with practitioners and researchers from engineering design and building design. The study elaborates the different ways of collaboration and use of design models in building design as compared to engineering design, in order to derive the potentials for cross-fertilisation between both areas of product development.

ds endorsed workshopDFX 2011 - 22nd Symposium on Design for X

The DFX Symposia have a track record that dates back to 1990. Since their existence the symposia have been closely connected to WDK (Workshop Design-Konstruktion) and the Design Society which emerged from WDK. After having been organised 20 times by Prof. Harald Meerkamm (Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg), in 2010 a new team has taken over: The symposia will be organised by Prof. Dieter Krause (Hamburg-Harburg University of Technology), Prof. Sandro Wartzack (Friedrich-Alexander...
