A Short Course in Industrial Design
The content s of this book should be seen as part of the design technique. In the overall plan for project evaluation and design only the methods connected with the final phases of the design project have been described.
The danger of formulating systematic methods in connection with construction work is that others are led into thinking that a systematic approach necessarily gives the right answer.
This is just not so. The most effective solution is achieved by the right balance of systematics and intuition.
The systematic approach should therefore be seen as the foundation for the appropriate attitude to innovation,namely an understanding of the fact that one can, through a conscious effort look objectively and systematically at all the design criteria and premises on which any particular solution is based.
