    Abstract

    From a historical perspective, two fundamental issues are observed for industrial designers: (1) what is the shape design process within the context of a modern product design process, and (2) how shape design theories, methods, tools and computer aided software can be effectively utilized for creating product shapes. A framework is proposed to resolve the issues by describing the relationships of the product design problems, product design processes, shape design processes, shape design methods and tools with consideration of the functional, ergonomic, emotional and manufacturing requirements. The framework implemented here is a new type of decision support system (DSS) - an object-oriented decision support system to assist the designers in designing product shapes.
