Abstract

Integrated Design Engineering (IDE) is a human-centred and multidisciplinary development approach that integrates products and their lifecycle phases, processes, organisations, knowledge, and information. One of the features of IDE is to describe both performance capability and performance behaviour of a product with different but equivalent and equally important attributes. These are structured into product attributes, performance attributes, and economic attributes. Due to this diversity, IDE attributes offer significantly more and better ways to describe and to develop a product exactly according to various requirements, which are based on the needs and desires of customers, on the different environments in which the product is to be used, and on the respective conditions to which the product must comply. This paper gives an introduction to the IDE attributes and describes how to work with them.
