This research aims to study the effect of seat and/or backrest rotation on comfort and quality of conversation. Different sitting arrangements were tested to study the effect of the seat layout on: 1) (dis)comfort experience; 2) conversation quality and 3) postures. Two seats were arranged in different angles (0° 45° 90° and 180°) at the same...

Technological innovation happens on a daily basis all around us. Yet, in our educational programs there is rarely any attention paid to what this is and how this unfolds over time in real life. This is not at all surprising, since there is not one unified and widely accepted body of knowledge on technological innovation that is grounded enough,...

In the area that is managed by the waterboard Amstel, Gooi and Vecht, some deep polders are located. Most of them attract large amounts of brackish seepage. This seepage not only contains salt, but also nutriënts.<br/>Without hydrological intervention, the waterquality in the area would suffer significantly from the brackish seepage. To prevent...

Participatory design or co-design is defined as the active engagement of all<br/>stakeholders in a design process. However, in many co-design projects, only end<br/>users are involved. Participants are often considered as the traditional<br/>representatives of a generalized stakeholder group, without prior analysis made<br/>on each individual’s...

In this contribution design thinking is taken as a transfer of design methods from product development to other domains. It is argued that the success of this transfer depends on the organisational context offered to design thinking in these other domains. We describe the application of design methods in product development and in two new...

In product development, representations of the intended product are needed to enable specialists to learn about what they develop together. A variety of representations is deployed, ranging from textual documents like requirements, up to integrated prototypes. The difference between these representations is the fidelity: the degree to which a...

Drastic cuts in government budgets will force cultural organizations to reconsider their position by initiating internal discussions on how to avert the risk of these cuts. In order to avoid gradual withering of their proposition, cultural organizations will increasingly search for new organizational constellations with new business models....

This paper provides an initial attempt to theoretically describe and understand how the composite product supply chain could reach advanced levels of industrialisation. At the heart of this work rest the interface between NPD (New Product Development) and Production as the central point where composite technology innovation takes place. This...

The research this paper reports on aims to develop a design and engineering strategy for complex ships in between incremental and radical innovation. The majority of European ship-design industry concentrates on the development of complex, one-off ‘specials’ for the offshore industry, like dredgers, drill ships, pipelaying ships, et cetera. This...

Most products are developed by New Product Development (NPD) teams, composed of specialists that need to collaborate closely. One of those specialists is a user-centered designer, focusing on the usability and experience of use of products. In this qualitative empirical study the contribution of designers to NPD teams is explored, filling a gap...

The European Maritime cluster remains a very important player in the design, production and operation of Complex Specials, but under pressure of competitors in the Far East both the design and the design approach has to 5e improved to maintain its maricet position. The problem of any new method is that it should comply with boundary conditions...

This paper reports on a government funded research project that was aimed at the development of a meta-method to improve NPD-processes in industry by the use of tools and methods available in literature. We choose to develop an industry-relevant taxonomy that could serve as means to categorise the NPD-tools and at the same time could facilitate...

This paper describes the development of the Airside Value Model. In the field of airport operations and airport performance measurement, there is much focus on ‘economical performance’. Additionally, Key Performance Indicators to assess airside operations are used, but these sets of KPIs are very diverse and the reasons for measuring them are...

This paper addresses the issue of ‘What is designing?’ from an unconventional perspective and aims to advance our understanding of what design really is. Designing has been studied from different perspectives but the underlying theoretical basis of studying the act has often been dispersed and not clear. To address these shortcomings, the paper...

The interface between Design and Manufacturing forms a locus of frequent interpersonal conflict. Misunderstandings, unwelcome surprises and planning problems are the rule rather than the exception. Within companies that deliver consumer goods in large quantities to the market this interface is also the transition from exploration (seeking new...

In this paper we present a framework to study the relationship between culture and office design. Different levels of culture are discussed as well as various ways in which culture can be expressed in the physical work environment. The framework is applied to contemporary changes in organisational culture and office design. Offices of...
