Abstract

The engineering design process is analysed and different contributing paradigms are identified, including the abstraction-to-detail paradigm mostly associated with systematic design. This analysis is supported by a questionnaire-based survey of design engineers to evaluate the industry's perception and use of systematic design paradigms. The insight gained by these results helps build an understanding of the observed discrepancy between the formal systematic design theory and many current design practices in the industry.
