Effectiveness of the systematic engineering design methodology

Motte, Damien LU (2015) International Conference on Engineering Design, 2015 In ICED DS 80(2). p.77-86
Abstract
This paper reviews a set of published industrial applications and research studies in order to assess the effectiveness of the systematic engineering design methodology. Effectiveness, which can be considered as the degree to which the final design solution fulfils the design requirements, is one of the critical features of a design methodology.

It cannot be concluded upon the reviewed publications that the methodology is not effective but it cannot be concluded either that the methodology is superior to an intuitive approach. The published industrial applications that have been identified have served mainly to confirm that the systematic engineering design methodology can lead to successful results. The identified research... (More)
This paper reviews a set of published industrial applications and research studies in order to assess the effectiveness of the systematic engineering design methodology. Effectiveness, which can be considered as the degree to which the final design solution fulfils the design requirements, is one of the critical features of a design methodology.

It cannot be concluded upon the reviewed publications that the methodology is not effective but it cannot be concluded either that the methodology is superior to an intuitive approach. The published industrial applications that have been identified have served mainly to confirm that the systematic engineering design methodology can lead to successful results. The identified research studies present more mixed results and show that several factors such as the engineering designer’s experience and motivation dramatically influence the outcome, at least as much as methodology. Both proponents and opponents of the systematic engineering design methodology seem to agree that the systematic methodology used flexibly is more effective, but guidance on how to use the methodology in this way is required.
