This paper introduces a design tool that provides customised engineering analysis functionalities for a manufacturer of metal frames. This work is motivated by the need for supporting small to medium scale enterprises (SMEs) with affordable computer aided analysis tools. The design process followed by a SME, Wright Metal Products of Simpsonville, SC,(More)
This paper reports on a preliminary study that explores the differences in requirements elicitation between user-familiarity and product-familiarity in engineering design. Two observational studies are used to investigate the effects of such designer familiarity with their ability to elicit requirements. The results illustrated that there appears to be(More)
