This paper describes an empirical study of student designers’ sketching activities in new product design teams. A comprehensive list of metrics associated with sketches is identified and their relative level of importance at different stages in the design process is evaluated. Correlations between sketching activities, variety of the concept sketches, and design outcomes are presented. Results show the volume of total sketches and the number of 3-dimensional sketches has an increasingly… Expand
