Design Management and Technology: The Impact on Design Process and Design Content

As a management challenge, technology is a facet of both the process and the content of design. As part of the process, the contributors in this volume address such issues as 3D software and modeling trends, criteria for selecting high-tech design tools, and the successful integration of those tools into the development cycle. As part of the content, authors share insights on what it takes to create winning high-tech products, and the role of design in shaping and adding meaning to those products. Comments and some fascinating speculation on the nature of high-tech environments round out the discussion.
