Identifying Reasons for a Lack of Method Application in Engineering Design Practice – An Interview Study

Eisenmann, M. ORCID iD icon; Matthiesen, S.

Abstract:

Design methods are seldom used in engineering design practice. The presented study aims at finding the alternative strategies for situations with a need for methodological support. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten experienced design engineers to identify causes of and strategies for those situations. Three strategy clusters could be identified: generating information, experience and method application. As the individual's and the team's experience compete with the application of methods, they are seen as reasons for a lack of method application.
