Deign Society Member Survey Report

Published:

Last summer we carried out a Member Survey to help us to understand what our members value about the society at the moment and what they would like to see the society offer in the future to ensure maintained and enhanced quality and service.  The response to the survey was excellent, with a 62% overall response rate. We have now produced a full report of the results of this survey, which is available as a member document.  Please follow the link below to find out what you, our members, value about the society now and what you would like us to offer in the future.  We have also included our initial reflections on the survey and we are now working hard to use your ideas to help us develop the Society's services to you for the future. https://www.designsociety.org/documents/3/member_documents...

Call for papers: A special issue of Research in Engineering Design on the topic of Design and Development Processes

Published:

Full manuscript submissions due 01 September 2017   Summary of the topic and scope: Understanding and supporting the design and development process is critical to creating good designs and bringing them to market or deploying them successfully. However, design and development processes can be difficult to execute and manage. They are becoming more complex and more distributed, and increasingly transcend  disciplinary  boundaries  such  that  products or systems,  services,  manufacturing  and  maintenance  processes  are  designed  together.  To address this complexity there is a need for greater understanding of design and development processes, as well as for practical approaches, tools and methods to support design and its management.   This...
