Open Design Community - Statistical Studies of Peer Production

Published:

Statistical Studies of Peer Production is starting another annual survey. This time focus will be on Open Design community. The survey will be part of longer and larger research focus, which contains: - Peer Production generation surveys (conducted annually since 2010) , - 3D Printing community surveys (conducted annually since 2012) and now also - Open Design community survey (starting 2013). Longitudinal trilogy The above listed parts constitute a trilogy, which is natural combination of areas which will play crucial role in future manufacturing and design practices. Discussion around ‘peer production’ has been active during the last years. Still, empirical information about ‘peer production’ communities has been minimal. Some...

Doctoral Colloquium, IASDR

Published:

Monday, 26 August 2013, Tokyo, JP A new category of paper submission has been set. Submission to the Doctoral Colloquium is independent from IASDR2013. So, a doctoral candidate can submit a paper to this in addition to the regular/invited session. We welcome applicants whose research is developed enough to present preliminary or intermediate research work and further research plans, but have not reached later stages of completion. The goal of the Doctoral Colloquium is to provide an opportunity for participating doctoral students to exchange their research ideas and approaches with other students and obtain feedback from advisory experts with different perspectives. We hope the colloquium experience enhances and enriches the participants’...

15th International DSM Conference

Published:

Wednesday, 28 August 2013 - Friday, 30 August 2013, Melbourne, AU Dependency and Structure Modeling (DSM) originates from the methods that have come about from using the Design Structure Matrix and similar methods (matrix-based as well as graph based). These methods have proven very valuable in designing complex systems, optimizing technical systems and product architectures and organizations, densely networked processes and large market structures. With its ability to manage complexity by looking into the structure of a system, it has led to many other advances and methodologies nowadays. The International DSM Conference provides a platform for practitioners, researchers, and developers of DSM-related tools to exchange experiences, discuss...

Job Posting - PhD Studentship in Design for Uncertainty, University of Cambridge

Published:

A PhD studentship is available for work on an exciting project aimed at determining how design methods can promote innovation with emerging technologies. The position is anticipated to commence in October 2013. One of the features of emerging technologies is the level of uncertainty that surrounds their development and their application (uncertain development schedules, technical performance, market demand, etc.). Another feature of emerging technologies is the number of different system types from which those technologies are composed or with which they interact (mechanical, computational, biological, etc.). The project involves studying the sources of uncertainty that affect design and the approaches that can be taken to address those uncertainties...

Job Posting - Research Assistant/Associate in Design for Emerging Technologies, University of Cambridge

Published:

The IdEAS project is funded by the UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council with the aim of determining how design methods can enable innovation within emerging technologies. A position exists for a Research Assistant/Associate to work on the project, developing a framework of design principles (e.g. modularity, redundancy, scalability, resilience, etc.) that apply to many different types of system (mechanical, computational, biological, organisational, etc.). The work will require (1) identifying and relating the different design principles, and (2) studying how they are employed in different types of system. The research methods to be used include literature reviews (across multiple disciplines), expert interviews and industry...

Jobs Posting -2 Design Research Positions, University of Cambridge Engineering Design Centre

Published:

Two design research positions are available at the University of Cambridge working with Dr Nathan Crilly in the Engineering Design Centre. One position is for a post-doctoral researcher (Research Assistant/Associate) and one is for a doctoral research student (PhD Studentship). Both positions are associated with a project funded by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council with the aim of determining how design methods can enable innovation within emerging technologies. The project is highly interdisciplinary, studying the design principles that apply across many different kinds of system, including technical systems, biological systems and social systems. The project description is available here: https://www-edc.eng.cam.ac.uk/projects/ideas/ The...

2nd International Workshop on Design in Civil and Environmental Engineering

Published:

Friday, 28 June 2013 - Saturday, 29 June 2013, Worcester, MA, , US The 2nd International Workshop on Design in Civil and Environmental Engineering will be held from June 28-29, 2013 on the campus of Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, MA, USA. DCEE 2013 will provide a unique interdisciplinary forum continue our exploration of what it would mean for design to be a discipline within CEE, what it means for design to be a discipline in other areas of engineering, and the implication for interdisciplinary design in cooperation with other fields such as architecture, urban planning, industrial design, product design and more. We hope to see you there! For full conference details, please visit the web site at http://dcee2013.org...
