Using current data-mining technologies, we analyzed 3712 papers submitted from 2002-2017 at the International Conference on Engineering Design and International Design Conference. We have explored various research questions and propose an approach for analyzing a great number of papers on product engineering and use them for respective research. Here, we show examples of how data mining can be used to support the user in carrying out literature research. However, one is particularly clear: The user must always critically question the results with his intelligence in order to derive findings.
