AME 599 – Innovative Conceptual Design for New Product Development (No major prerequisites required)
This course teaches a systematic conceptual design framework, called Innovative Design Thinking (IDT), for designers to leverage the power of design theories to attain “ideality” from upstream while consider the requirement of design practices to maintain “practicality” from downstream during product development. Students will learn how to use propositional logics and design axioms with a systematic design process in IDT to ideate new concepts that are logically feasible, functionally simple and physically certain. These design concepts, with proper execution sequences, will have the minimal functional complexity and the maximal physical modularity, hence leading to new products that are both as ideal and practical as possible.
