The Science of Design 650390

The research methodology is appropriate for developing generalizations or theories, but may not be optimal for designing and engineering projects. A comparison between the present methodologies of research and design shows they are the same but that their purposes are different. Preliminary research supports the hypothesis that a design approach can provide solutions better than can result from the research approach. An empirically derived design approach is discussed in relation to its successful applications for designing engineering and management systems.
