    Abstract

    The significance of the design process in determining the success or failure of a product in the market place is becoming increasingly more articulated. Consequently companies are implementing and developing new techniques and tools to support design more effectively. Design research is directed at gaining a greater understanding of design, ultimately to better support it through the development of improved techniques, methods or tools.
