    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Colour vision; Russian avant-garde; Mikhail Matiushin; Elena Guro; Ender siblings; art; science; laboratory observations; colour practices; colour theory; synaesthesia; dialectical materialism; Stalin; culture; universal language; architecture; design; Matjušin; Michail Vasilʹevič; 1861-1934; Experimentell konsthistoria Sovjetunionen 1930-talet; Färglära historia Sovjetunionen 1930-talet; Art; Konstvetenskap; konstvetenskap; Art History; practices; physiology; psychology; formalism;

    Abstract : Colour vision was of fundamental importance in modernist art. One reason its significance has been studied so little with regard to Russian art is that Soviet archives were inaccessible until the early 1990s. This work is the first close study on a so-called laboratory in an art- and science institute in the Soviet Union in the 1920s. READ MORE

  2. 2. Planning Design Automation Systems - Criteria and Guidelines

    Author : Mikael Cederfeldt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Synthesis; Potential; Variant design; Design automation; Need; Process maturity; Planning; and Evaluation.; Evaluation;

    Abstract : Design automation can be a powerful tool in the continuous endeavour to cut lead times, workloads, and, ultimately, costs in order to become more competitive in an increasingly globalised market. Identifying a need for design automation is, consequently, not difficult. What becomes a lot more difficult is identifying the actual need, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Platform-Based Design - Design Rationale Aspects within the Configurable Component Concept

    Author : Stellan Gedell; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; design rationale; derivate designs; configurable components; set-based design; product model; re-use; platform-based design; function-means tree;

    Abstract : Competition, emanating from globalization and the continuing evolution in supplier chains, especially within the automotive industry, creates pressure on every phase of a design´s lifecycle to be more efficient. Requirements, which at least are perceived as conflicting, on one hand a low product price achieved by high volumes and economy of scale, and on the other hand the customers´ whish of individualized products, push for new approaches.

  4. 4. Multidisciplinary design automation : Working with product model extensions

    Author : Tim Heikkinen; Jönköping University; []

    Abstract : Being able to efficiently and effectively provide custom products has been identified as a competitive advantage for manufacturing organizations. Product configuration has been shown to be an effective way of achieving this through a modularization, product platform and product family development approach. READ MORE

  5. 5. Product-Service System Designing for Environmental Sustainability : Insights into Design Cognition of Experienced Product Developers

    Author : Abhijna Neramballi; Tomohiko Sakao; Mattias Lindahl; Claudia Eckert; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Design cognition; Product-service system designing; Product designing; Design support; Design for environmental sustainability.;

    Abstract : The overall objective of this research is to support practitioners within the manufacturing industry to effectively design product-service system (PSS)-based solutions with relatively lower environmental impacts than typical product-centric solutions. Design research methodology (DRM) is applied to systematically address this objective with both descriptive and prescriptive approaches. READ MORE
