Overview

This book presents selected papers from the 1999 CIRP International Design Seminar. Design is a fundamental creative human activity. This certainty applies to the design of artifacts, the realisation of which has to meet ever increasing demands. This volume includes an introduction to design theories and methods, design and engineering processes, the role of computer support tools, and artificial intelligence in design support. The other contributions can be divided roughly into two categories. The first category deals with design support tools in relation to such topics as conceptual design, collaborative design, modelling, design optimization and evaluation. The second category treats the control of design and engineering processes in relation to subjects like product and process knowledge, process representation, synthesis of thought and methods, integration, and concurrency.
