Ideation Metrics: Interdependency between Average Novelty and Variety

Jagtap, Santosh LU ; Larsson, Andreas LU ; Hiort af Ornäs, Viktor LU ; Olander, Elin LU and Warell, Anders LU (2012) International Design Conference - Design 2012 In DS 70: Proceedings of DESIGN 2012, the 12th International Design Conference, Dubrovnik, Croatia p.1881-1892
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

The importance of ideation in the conceptual design phase has been widely accepted. Shah et al. (2003) developed four key metrics for evaluating a designer’s exploration and expansion of design space. The four metrics are: novelty, variety, quality, and quantity of designs. The mean of novelty scores of ideas in a set (i.e. Average Novelty - AN) has also been used in some ideation studies. However, many of the studies that have computed AN and variety, have not examined the interdependency between them. This research aims at examining the interdependency between AN and variety.
