The company who gave the brief is Exact Software in Delft. The purpose of this project is to understand the value of the ‘design approach’ that is taught in the course of the IDE program. The alumni of IDE are not all typical product designers, they tend to work in a variety of areas other than IDE. A research with a focus to assess the value of the design approach learned at IDE will help to understand how and what IDE can contribute to areas other than product design. The result of this research project shows how IDE approach could contribute to the software design is shown in an IDE framework. A framework is developed, tested and evaluated within the company Exact. The framework is not only beneficial for area of software design. It also gives a retrospective to the value of an IDE approach outside of its own discipline.
