Design thinking has risen from the d.school at Stanford and is utilized in numerous applications across many fields. Those in the aerospace industry must apply design thinking as human factors are increasingly used in aerospace. In addition, as a human- centered design method, design thinking will play an important role for obvious applications (e.g. interiors) and in less-obvious applications alike (e.g. wire routings). Craig will introduce the basic concepts of design thinking and how they can be applied to various aerospace applications, as well as how they can be applied to your career.
