Creating a Culture of Socially-Conscious Design Innovation How does one go about designing better water filters for solving the clean water needs of 1.3 billion people, simplified intravenous (IV) treatment devices for cholera patients in refugee camps, low-cost prescription eye-wear for communities in Africa or active response kits and temporary shelters for disaster relief? Critical design challenges in the environment and under-privileged communities have generally not been well addressed by…

An empirical evaluation of design rationale documents
TLDR
The results of an empirical evaluation of DR documents are presented, led to conclude that DR should be useful, at least for some designers who use it as a support to their reasoning, but not sufficient.
Design Knowledge and Design Rationale: A Framework for Representation, Capture, and Use
TLDR
This paper characterize different methods of acquiring design knowledge and design rationale in the context of integrated design support environments and presents a theory of design knowledge in the form of an ontology of concepts about design descriptions and operations on them.
Augmenting organizational memory: a field study of answer garden
TLDR
Answer Garden is presented, a system for growing organizational memory and its underlying implementation, and a set of lessons for next-generation organizational memory systems are drawn.
