This is one of four books resulting from the 13th international (35 countries represented) conference on engineering design (ICED 01). ICED covers engineering design from product development and innovation to feature-based geometric reasoning and design for later life-phases. The theme of the conference was unifying engineering design--building a partnership between research and industry. The 325 papers (8 pages each) were selected after a double blind review of the abstracts and a double review of the papers. This volume consists of 13 topics around the theme of managing the design process, and covers knowledge and information management and the organization and management issues associated with the design activity itself. Paper topics include managing uncertainty, diversity in the performance team, and dealing with dysfunctions. No subject index. Distributed in the US by ASME. c.
