This course aims at presenting the latest developments, theories and approaches in product development in a global and distributed world with a multi-expertise, multi-enterprise and multi-actor context. More precisely we adress here the research methodology issues related to the study of such complex collaborative situations. The aim of the course is to provide the latest tools for analysing and modeling complex collaborative situations.
First situation: designing a ticket folder
Discovering design as a collaborative and knowledge intensive activity.
Situation 2: delta design game integrating communities of practice
Discovering mutual understanding, shared representations in synchronous design situations
Observing Collaborative design situations.
Presentation of the main research methodologies accessible today. Focus on protocol analysis and coding exercise.
Situation 3 : designing a real design experiment.
Among 3 themes one team will develop a complete protocol (brief, data collection, analysis grid)
*theme 1: early supplier involvement
*theme 2: User centered design and participatory design
*theme 3: Integration of environmental issues
Situation 4: lab work on a collaborative platform
Discovering the issue of communities of practice and asynchronous collaboration.
Motivation to understand and analyse the collaborative design process. Motivation to develop methodological skills of analysis and observation. It is desirable that students have a good knowledge of the product design activity through students projects or work experience.
Continuous assessment (CC) :
Situation 1 : informal presentation
Situation 2 : PPT presentation
Situation 3 : PPT presentation + report
Situation 4 : software manipulation + report
