Abstract

This paper provides a review of papers published in the Journal of Engineering Design from 2007 to 2008. Included are the different perspectives on key challenges existing within, and state-of-the-art technologies developed as solutions to current design issues. The intention of this paper is not to provide detailed coverage of all the papers published over the last two years, but rather to provide an overview of research efforts focusing upon key research streams and to illustrate trends within design research and practice.
