Generally, a reduction of components variety leads to shorter lead-time and minimum cost. It is essential to obtain first-hand information on customer likes, dislikes, preferences and prejudices. Highly suitable for all students stuart pugh total design engineering, industrial design, architecture and computer science, as well as for the professional engineer and designer who will find in it a very useful framework to assist their design practice.

Listen to them and always ask them the context of their criticisms. Total Design and Pugh Concept Selection. This is shown in Figure 2. These may occur at the following stages: A methodology for selection that does not inhibit creativity during the process of selection of concepts, but positively stimulates the emergence of new concepts, which might not have emerged by other means.

Is it possible at all?

Pugh’s most famous work, “Concept Selection — A Method that Works”, [2] describes Pugh’s innovative ‘controlled convergence’ technique that was put to the test so successfully for General Motors desigj Saturn project. Want to Read saving….

Total design stuart pugh total design distinguish from “partial design” in which total design requires the input from people of many disciplines, both engineering and non-engineering, in a mix that is almost unique to the product under consideration. Note also the first column is left for changes made to the specification as the design process continues.

Definitive operating instructions must be prepared. Zuk marked it as to-read Jul 28, Can a new or different principle be used? Alan added it Jan 18, Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The design core separates the design process into six iterative stages. The wrong choice stuart pugh total design concept in a given design situation can rarely, if ever, be recouped by brilliant detail design.

Installation therefore must be considered in the PDS. The purpose of any method of evaluation is to allow design principles to emerge visibly in a context and to be articulated.

Remember that technology excitement can led to “cut and run”. Eyeball-to-eyeball discussion, question and answer, an examination of competitor’s trends and specifications are all useful inputs to the specification.

A complete and absolute embargo of “gut-feeling” decision-making; part experience is just as likely to prove wrong as right in today’s competitive world. Note the “D or W” column. They become designers since they contribute to the design activities. Care should be taken that each concept remains comparable with the other. It must be pointed out that product based on a “blank sheet of paper” design stuart pugh total design single ideas Eureka’s – are unlikely to compete with, say Japanese stuart pugh total design, unless you are extremely fortunate and luck.

When one particular concept persists, rerun the matrix using the strongest emergent concepts from the first run as datum. MarketUser Needs and Demands. The testing is related to performance.

Individuals working separately generate more ideas than in a group. Otherwise, during the course of the project the market may disappear.
