Concept-to-Value: Method and Tool for Value Creation in Conceptual Design

  title={Concept-to-Value: Method and Tool for Value Creation in Conceptual Design},
  author={Ndrianarilala Rianantsoa and Bernard Yannou and Romaric Redon},
This paper is dealing with the problem of steering the conceptual design by value. Indeed, the preliminary phase of the design process, which generates the innovative concepts that will be developed in detail, already defines broadly the created value of an innovation project. Contrarily to the detailed design that consists in design solutions refinement for well defined performances increase, the conceptual design is characterized by the fact that the design objects, like the design problems…
