Abstract

High competition and low manufacturing costs in emerging countries, forces European firms to improve quality, cost and delivery. In this context, research and development departments have to look towards high production design methods and tools in order to stay competitive. The main goal of our research is to reduce routine design process and thereby increase time for creative design tasks, particularly, creative design in new concept creation, optimisation and validation, by integrating data management, information management, knowledge management, and decision-support methods and tools, such as PDM (product data management), PLM (product life management), KBE (Knowledge based engineering), etc. Our methodology deals with reduction of routine design activities by introducing automatic activities during project, product and process design tasks in order to generate time for creative design. A 3D model generated by KBE tools is able to make new concepts crossing different parameters together, then the new concepts are automaticaly checked by validation loops, including product validation and process validation. Our methodology is tested in a firm specialized in shutter components. By implementing this method in an industrial company, we can reduce routine design, improve the design robustness and also take the opportunity to try new concepts, materials, combinations and at the same time implement new knowledge for future concepts.

ICDC 2012: The 2nd International Conference on Design CreativityDesign Creativity is an important and interesting topic of study in design. Since it involves the profound and essential nature of design, design creativity is expected to be a key in not only addressing the social problems that we are facing, but also producing an innate appreciation for beauty and happiness in our minds. In order to elucidate the nature of design creativity, the following issues are being studied: - Cognitive processes underlying design creativity - Computational models of design...
