The aim of the paper is to reveal phenomena of integrated design engineering in practice by comparing four different product developments in a case study. Based on our universal questionnaire, the product developments in the branch automotive, sports optics, power tools and camera are analyzed in terms of their abilities in the field of problem solving, complexity and traceability. With the help of the collected data, we confirm well-known product development phenomena such as the ill-definedness of goals, communication as complexity driver and the lack of traceability in design rationale.
