Residential smart grid projects can be evaluated by a design-driven approach, which focuses on gaining insights for successful product and service development by taking the end-users as a starting point. Because only little experience exists with this design-driven approach, this paper addresses how four pilot projects with smart energy...

A product’s value proposition rests on the notion that it brings value to its customers. Typically, such value is created by having novel product functionality, superior technology, or new customer benefits, but value can also be created by adhering to what is fundamentally important to customers in their lives. Focusing on customers’ happiness...

If we wish to reach a deeper, more objective understanding of the phenomena of Architectural and Environmental Design, we need to develop and apply working methods that allow us to imaginatively analyse and consequently envision the formal issues which are at (inter)play: demonstrating their workings and effects in the ‘Real World’. First of all...

Building performance simulation (BPS) is the basis for informed decision-making of Net Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs) design. This paper aims to investigate the use of building performance simulation tools as a method of informing the design decision of NZEBs. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of a simulationbased decision aid, ZEBO...

This doctoral thesis proposes ways for the translation of the Lean Thinking (LT) into design practice and research, taking the LT concepts as dimensions to study designers’ behavior across design disciplines. Lean Thinking has its roots in manufacturing, however, as a philosophy of guiding principles of Value creation, LT has been applied to a...

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...

The conference theme, 'knowing (by) designing', specifically addresses (the processes involved in getting) experiential knowledge from designer's actions. The knowledge gained by designing can be domain specific (regarding e.g. the characteristics of certain materials, tools and techniques) and it can be more fundaniental knowledge about design...

We make numerous decisions every day. Some decisions are based on a range of explicit and material alternatives, others are constructed from implicit ideas about the options we have in mind. In preparing a construction project, creating a vision on how the future would look like appears to be one of the most important activities. This is usually...

Existing solid slab bridges under a combination of wheel loads and distributed traffic loads sometimes do not fulfil the code requirements for shear. However, reinforced concrete slabs loaded close to the support are subjected to shear stresses which might result in a failure mode of combined punching and shear. This behaviour is studied in a...

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...

Author's version of the work published in: ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems (TOPLAS), 34 (4), 2012; doi:10.1145/2400676.2400678. Integrated development environments (IDEs) increase programmer productivity, providing rapid, interactive feedback based on the syntax and semantics of a language. Unlike conventional parsing...

When information from two or more sensory modalities conflicts, this can evoke a surprise reaction as well as feelings of amusement, interest, confusion or disappointment. In concurrence to joke theory, we argue that people appreciate and enjoy appropriate incongruities that can be related back to the product, whereas they are confused by and...

Solar photovoltaic outdoor lighting applications usually comprise flat plate PV modules mounted on top of a light pole. In our paper instead, it is thought of to design the light pole as a luminescent solar concentrator photovoltaic (LSC-PV) module with solar cell strips and hence reduce costs of silicon solar cells because concentration effects...

This paper presents the results of a qualitative study about how design students cope with culture in the i-do (international design opportunity) series of international design workshops in Hong Kong. We wanted to learn three things. (1) To what extent do the design students from different nations share common cultural values? (2) what...

The classical sustainability perspective on packaging is to reduce the environmental impact or eco burden of the packaging, using life cycle assessment to evaluate different design alternatives. Simultaneously, the classical marketing perspective on packaging is to generate value through differentiation, for instance, by providing additional...

Decision making in design is of great importance, resulting in success or failure of a system. This paper describes a robust decision support tool for engineering design process, which can be used throughout the design process. The tool is graphical and designed to communicate efficiently with different fields of expertise. It takes into account...

In European regions, such as the Randstad Holland, emerging patterns of interaction and movement result in increasing spatial fragmentation. This development creates enormous challenges for the governance of territories. Classic forms of government, based upon clear-cut divisions in terms of administrative levels, policy sectors and the public...

Disaster evacuation studies are important but difficult or impossible to conduct in the real world. Evacuation simulation in a virtual world can be an important tool to obtain data on the escape and choice behavior of people. However, to obtain accurate “realistic” data, the engagement of participants is a key challenge. Therefore, we describe...
