Development of a methodology to implement set-based design in a day
Paper in proceeding, 2016

A simplified variant of Set-Based Design (SBD) was created and combined with creative methods such as the 6-3-5 method and the gallery method. This made it easy to introduce in one day, which has been verified by tests in industrial firms . In total 45 have experienced designers tested the method on real mechanical design problems. The method was perceived easy to understand and well received by designers. The introduction of it was less cumbersome compared to the full version of SBD. The conclusion is that the developed method makes it easier to introduce parts of SBD with good results.
