Adaptation and implementation of a process of innovation and design within a SME
Communication avec acte
A design process is a sequence of design phases, starting with the design requirement and leading to a definition of one or several system architectures. For every design phase, various support tools and resolution methods are proposed in the literature. These tools are however very difficult to implement in an SME, which may often lack resources. In this article we propose a complete design process for new manufacturing techniques, based on creativity and knowledge re-use in searching for technical solutions. Conscious of the difficulties of appropriation in SME, for every phase of our design process we propose resolution tools which are adapted to the context of a small firm. Design knowledge has been capitalized in a knowledge base. The knowledge structuring we propose is based on functional logic and the design process too is based on the functional decomposition of the system, and integrates the simplification of the system architecture, from the early phases of the process. For this purpose, aggregation phases and embodiment are proposed and guided by heuristics.

Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureAMMAR, Adel Amin; SCARAVETTI, Dominique; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre (IJDIR, 2010)Small companies can find it difficult to preserve their knowledge, and also to structure a design process. A design methodology is proposed, based on design knowledge reuse and suitable for developing new manufacturing ...
Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureVALVERDE, Ulises; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre; SCARAVETTI, Dominique; LEON, Jean-François (ELSEVIER, 2014)One can find innovative solutions to complex industrial problems by looking for knowledge in patents. Traditional search using keywords in databases of patents has been widely used. Currently, different computational methods ...
A new method for extracting knowledge from patents to inspire designers during the problem-solving phase Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureVALVERDE, Ulises; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre; SCARAVETTI, Dominique (Taylor & Francis, 2017)Nowadays, patents are more than an industrial property protection,they constitute a considerable source of information. Several approaches deal with the extraction of pertinent information from patents, some of them translate ...
Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureSCARAVETTI, Dominique; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre; PAILHES, Jérôme; SEBASTIAN, Patrick (Inderscience, 2005)Early stages of the design process are often based on designers| experience; assumptions and irreversible decisions restricting the solution space are taken. It is difficult to take into account simultaneously every ...
