  1. Concept Generation

  2. Design can appear overwhelming • Function • Cost • Manufacturability • Aesthetics/Form • Assembly • Maintenance • Service • Disposal • Recycling • Sustainability • Reliability • Durability • Quality • Expandability • Etc., etc., etc.

  3. How can we formalize “creativity”? • 1. Clarify the problem. • 2. Search externally. • 3. Search internally. • 4. Explore systematically. • 5. Reflect on the results and the process.

  4. Search Externally • Patents • Designs in the marketplace • Experts • Etc.

  5. Search Internally • Brainstorming as yesterday • TRIZ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRIZ • http://www.triz.org/ • http://www.triz-journal.com/whatistriz.htm • Brute force • Kaleidoscopic thinking • Pick many domains and relate to them • Method of focal objects • Pick two seemingly unrelated objects

  6. Is it possible to do an exhaustive search?

  7. Probably not, but! • The process leads us to a more comprehensive search • It teaches us to focus on process, not just one result • The engineering is in the process • The better the search method, the better the process and vice versa

  8. Happy Designing!
