An Anthology of Theories and Models of Design : Philosophy, Approaches and Empirical Explorations Hardback

Edited by Amaresh Chakrabarti, Lucienne T. M. Blessing

Description

While investigations into both theories and models has remained a major strand of engineering design research, current literature sorely lacks a reference book that provides a comprehensive and up-to-date anthology of theories and models, and their philosophical and empirical underpinnings; An Anthology of Theories and Models of Design fills this gap. The text collects the expert views of an international authorship, covering:* significant theories in engineering design, including CK theory, domain theory, and the theory of technical systems;* current models of design, from a function behavior structure model to an integrated model;* important empirical research findings from studies into design; and * philosophical underpinnings of design itself. For educators and researchers in engineering design, An Anthology of Theories and Models of Design gives access to in-depth coverage of theoretical and empirical developments in this area; for practitioners, the book will provide exposure to theoretical and empirical foundations to methods and tools that are currently practiced as well as those in the process of development.
