Design Management and Technology
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 3-D 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.
