Abstract

Design of any product is associated with a number of elements like technical parameters, material properties, functional and geometrical interdependence, etc. A balance between the technical parameters and creativity is necessary for a successful product design. To address this, a mathematical model is generally proposed, which many times, may not be a correct representation. For mathematical models, the tendencies and relationships remain true for a specified period of time only. The applications of fuzzy for the design decision deliver accurate information related to customer needs. In this paper, a design method for the reservoir of an air cooler is proposed to handle uncertainty using fuzzy logic. This method helps develop a dedicated tool for handling uncertainty and allows to take advantage of the creativity-based design process to achieve the goals of innovative product design.

Special Interest Group (SIG)Design Creativity

The objective of SIG - Design Creativity is to study creativity in design. We have not sufficiently clarified creativity, especially in the context of design, although it is a very interesting characteristic in the thinking process of humans. This research discusses creativity in design instead of trying to identify its standard characteristics. That is, it tries to answer the question “What is design?” from the viewpoint of creativity, for two perspectives. First, this SIG discusses the characteristics...
