Abstract

This paper describes empirical research carried out to understand the knowledge possessed by experienced engineering designers. Three studies were carried out in order to understand the differences between how novice and experienced designers approach design tasks within the aerospace industry. Strategic knowledge used by experienced designers was identified from the findings. A method to support novice designers through the provision of generic questions based upon this strategic knowledge was developed. This method has been empirically evaluated for possible implementation in the form of an Intranet to support designers. This Intranet captures and structures information based upon observations of experienced designers and therefore prompts novice designers to behave more like experienced designers.
