Section: DESIGN THEORY AND RESEARCH METHODS
The re-use of components, concepts and related knowledge is an important factor in design. Based on the CPM/PDD approach, this contribution defines the term “solution pattern” as the carrier of the product-related knowledge. From there, the role of solution patterns in innovation is studied as the core issue of this article. Because of their importance, the role of solution patterns in design practice and design education is also briefly studied. Conclusions are drawn for further research topics, and for modifications in design education.
