    • The Incremental Design flow is a methodology for processing designs in a hierarchical way that reuses results for unchanging portions of a design
    • The Benefits are:
      • Time efficient
      • Cost efficient
      • Preserves design performance
  • 3. Radical Design
    • We may define design driven innovation as an innovation where novelty of message and design language is significant and prevalent compared to novelty of functionality and technology.
    • Successful Italian manufacturers in design-intensive industries have demonstrated unique capabilities to master design driven innovation.
    • In particular, their innovation strategy is punctuated by endeavors to take the lead of competition through breakthrough changes of product meanings, what we call radical design driven innovations

    • analytical
    • solution focused - how can the problem be solved?
    • evaluates alternatives
    • favors closure
    • use at research stage and during evaluation
