Abstract

The 'optimal' or 'best' design process may be the shortest or cheapest process, or the one that leads to a particularly desirable product, or to a reliable and maintainable product, or to a manufacturable product, or some combination of all of these. It is likely to satisfy the aspirations of the organisation to invest an appropriate amount of resource in the development of a specific new market opportunity, set in the context of longer-term business goals. This paper describes the progress made in over ten years of research on process modelling undertaken at the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre to identify an 'optimal' design process with which to develop an 'adequate' product.
