Abstract

There are a significant number of methods and approaches in design theory to support designers of mechanical engineering systems in everyday challenges. The applicability of these methods and approaches to industry appears limited, since influences on the product design process are only accounted marginally. This article presents a model that is based on theoretical approaches but is focused on extending system boundaries to factor in the modern work environment of mechanical engineering designers. Three areas of operation highly relevant to the development of economic products are included in the model: the classification of products according to the designated market, the decision-making process and the creation sequence. The areas are interlinked and are described using common as well as novel methods and approaches. An example design process is used to apply and evaluate the model.
