The design and engineering of large, complex electromechanical artifacts for use in space requires the integration of many engineering groups, spread across the components of the artifact and across the customer and suppliers. And within each engineering group there is a need to integrate the many diverse skills required, such as electrical, mechanical, thermal, software and materials. This paper describes the results of a study conducted from the Summer of1992 through the Fall of1993 at a… Expand
Mapping the product development process to IT solutions through use models
Product development, especially the design of large complex systems, is a special type of business process. What makes it special is the highly coupled nature of design decisions and the large sizeExpand
The management of electronics engineering design teams: linking tactics to changing conditions
Abstract This paper reports on a multi-method study of design team management in a leading UK electronics company, focusing on how project leaders support collaboration between design engineers, theExpand
COMPUTER-SUPPORTED COLLABORATIVE KNOWLEDGE BUILDING IN ENGINEERING DESIGN
Engineering design is defined as a process of devising a technical system, component, or process to satisfy desired needs. Collaborative engineering design (CED) is a knowledgeintensive process thatExpand

Agile methodologies applied to Integrated Concurrent Engineering for spacecraft design
TLDR
The general aspects of the proposed method are presented and applied to the design of a space mission, the results being analysed and compared with to the classical CE process in order to outline its differences and similarities with CE and Agile methodologies and show its potential for a new environment for space project design.

The Role of a Group-Centered Approach in the Development of Computer-Supported Collaborative Design Technologies
Collaborative groups, by their very nature, involve the interactions of many participants which can vary in time, place, culture, knowledge, and ability. The design of collaborative technology forExpand
Information Management for Concurrent Engineering: Research Issues
TLDR
The paper outlines major requirements facing concurrent engineering (CE) on the ability of collaborating designers to proceed independently, correlate interdependency, use existing information (data, knowledge, and processes), and negotiate conflicts arising from design inconsistencies. Expand
Team communication in complex projects
Abstract Engineering managers, faced with ever greater system integration challenges, must actively improve team communications. As a conceptual tool, the work activity of a system development teamExpand
Coordination in Human Teams: Theories, Data and Models
TLDR
The approach is to blend normative mathematical theories for team decisionmaking with descriptive facets that capture known, and observed, human cognitive limitations and biases, and the resulting normative-descriptive models provide excellent predictions of the actual human data. Expand
