Call for papers: A special issue of Research in Engineering Design on the 
topic of Design and Development Processes

Full manuscript submissions are due 01 September 2017.

 
Summary of the topic and scope:
 
Understanding and supporting the design and development process is critical 
to creating good designs and bringing them to market or deploying them 
successfully. However, design and development processes can be difficult to 
execute and manage. They are becoming more complex and more distributed, and 
increasingly transcend  disciplinary  boundaries  such  that  products or 
systems,  services,  manufacturing  and  maintenance  processes  are  
designed  together.  To address this complexity there is a need for greater 
understanding of design and development processes, as well as for practical 
approaches, tools and methods to support design and its management.
 
This special issue aims to bring together state of the art of  design  and  
development  process  research  that  takes  an empirical,  theoretical,  
conceptual,  prescriptive  or  pragmatic perspective on the topic, and has a 
genuine ultimate goal to improve design practice.

 
Submissions may consider design and development processes on any scale, from 
the activities of individuals or teams who execute, manage, or direct them, 
through to the macro-level processes used to develop complex products or 
systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

 
• Models of the design and/or development process.

• Methods and tools to support the design and/or development process.

• Engineering change with an emphasis on the (re)design process.

• Empirical work revealing new insights on the design and/or development 
process.

• The design of design and/or development processes.

• The coordination of design and/or development including at different levels 
of scale.

• The relationships between design and/or development processes and their 
contexts.

• The relationship between design and/or development processes and product 
properties.

• Perspectives on other design and development process issues, such as 
iteration, complexity, coordination, uncertainty, etc.

• Critical analysis of existing approaches.

 
Full manuscript submissions are due 01 September 2017.
