Fostering creativity and innovation during early informal design phases. Part 2: methods and tools

Abstract : Innovation and collaboration are two main topics of actual research activities. In the worldwide competition, companies need to develop new and innovative products. The more innovation is fostered early in the product development process, the more costs and time of development will be under control. Despite many works achieved for years on methods and tools in design, very few frameworks exist to support designers during the early design phases. This special issue focuses on frameworks that can support designers to generate and select concepts and new ideas during the first phase of design process. Several points of view are expressed from the generation of design information, sometimes in a collaborative context, to its sharing and to their evaluation and decision making.
