Optimisation du processus de conception : proposition d'un modèle de sélection des méthodes pour l'aide à la décision

Abstract : A widely discussed issue in industrial engineering focuses on the main role taken by design methods, especially when aiming at formalizing new products development process. Along the years, this formalization has become a critical topic for industrial firms. With the purpose to extend the conclusions of these studies, the starting point of our work lies on the large amount of design methods available and how difficult it can be to select one of it for a given project. Seeing that a single design method that could fit with any project doesn't exist, our problematic can be written as : how is it possible to help designers to select the appropriate design methods within their own project ? This question leads to building, prior to a new development, of a design process lying on well chosen methods and tools that will lead to a predefined goal. The relation between the context of the project and the design methods is the key principle of our model. Thus, our model is based on three axles which are: description of the context, description of the methods and description of the connections between both of these domains. Our experimentations led us to developing a system for helping to select the right methods. This decision support tool for designers, engineers and project leaders indicates the methods that would suit best for the design process given the contextual data indicated by the user. Evaluating this system allowed us to validate our model and to draw new perspective based on our study.
