The design of a product involves a process in which several different aspects are combined in order to obtain a final, suitable and optimum product. Designers must interact with different stakeholder groups, make decisions and complete the design process. In order to achieve this, different evaluation techniques are used. Depending on the chosen technique and on the field and environment in which each member of the design team was trained, each one of the members will consider one or several… 
21st International Research/Expert Conference
The success and growth of any business is directly proportional to the innovative product development strategies adopted by it and is a renowned fact in the industry. Development of the product lasts
Concept of intelligent supporting information system for development of new appliances
A method for helping the appliance developers, which based on existing knowledge foresees potential solutions with new challenges, which is suggested to be suitable during new appliance development is suggested.
All optical XOR logic gate formed by unsupervised optical neuron networks
The simulated results indicate that the optical neuron network has potential to achieve an optical integrated circuit and the processing rate in the ONN is in light frequency, which will help the binary data sequence more efficiently.


Towards an integrated approach to “Design for X”: an agenda for decision-based DFX research
Concurrent engineering encourages holistic product development, considering all aspects of the product in design decisions. “Design for X” (DFX) techniques are popular for doing this, yet each
Evaluation of materials selection activities in user-centred design projects
An effective materials selection process is crucial for the development of high-quality products that have functionality and enable user–product interaction. The study at hand aims to identify the
A Framework for Decision-Based Engineering Design
The underlying notions of decision-based design are presented, some of the axioms that underlie the theory are pointed to, and the consequences of the theory on engineering education are discussed.
Activities in selecting materials from the perspective of product designers
A competitive market requires a materials selection approach that leads to products that stand out in functionality and user-interaction. Insights in how product designers select materials for new
Analytic hierarchy process: An overview of applications
A literature review of the applications of Analytic Hierarchy Process, which aims to provide a ready reference on AHP, and act as an informative summary kit for the researchers and practitioners for their future work.
Application of neural network in QFD matrix
The results of analyses show that the intelligent estimation methods are useful and effective for quality function deployment method and a chosen artificial intelligence method was used.
Effectiveness of the means of expression in creative problem-solving in design groups
Three variants of sentential brainstorming are developed, each of which highlights one of the three forms of expression used in design groups: sentential, visual and objectual (with pieces or rudimentary objects).
Utilization of Concept Selection Methods: A Survey of Finnish Industry
Concept selection is an area of design research that has been under considerable interest over the years. There is, however, only little information on how the methods that have been presented in
Priority assessment of software process requirements from multiple perspectives
A Correlation-Based Priority Assessment framework is presented, which prioritizes software process requirements gathered from multiple stakeholders by incorporating inter-perspective relationships of requirements by using a relationship matrix to analyze the impacts between requirements and to facilitate the integration.
Managing conflict in collaborative new product development: a supplier perspective
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the distribution of conflict over various NPD phases and identify the main sources of conflict and the five conflict handling styles in new
