Review from a design process perspective
In: Nagl, M., Marquardt, W. (Eds.): Collaborative and distributed chemical engineering : from understanding to substantial design process support ; results of the IMPROVE project , Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, (8.1), 2008, 743-752
This section briefly summarizes and evaluates the results of IMPROVE from an application-oriented perspective. The application domain model, its use for the improvement of design processes, and its implications for the development of design support tools constitute the main focus. We conclude that the model framework has reached a high standard and constitutes a good basis for further refinement and extension. However, the model needs even more validation in industrial case studies. The discussion of this section is given from an academic viewpoint. The industrial relevance of design process results is given in Sect. 8.3.
