The IAAD organises the second International Summerschool on Axiomatic Design from the 11th to the 13th of June 2023. Detailed information can be found here.
Fundamental principles of Axiomatic Design (AD) are reviewed, with insights and perspectives of over 30 years of teaching and practice. This should be of interest to beginners and to all levels of users.
The latest methods for using AD, qualitatively and quantitatively,
for selecting the best design solutions and for fostering innovations are presented. AD, originating with Nam Suh at MIT in the late 1970s, contends that all good designs comply with two axioms: maintaining independence of the functional elements and minimizing information content. AD can add value and reduce costs in designs and in the design process. Participants learn also to use Mirò software
for the design of complex systems and products.
This tutorial is intended students, PhD students, researchers and design practitioners, who might have never used Axiomatic Design as design theory, or who would like a fresh perspective.
