[PDF] Lean Manufacturing and its impact on Industrial Design

Industrial Design Research Programme of the Academy of Finland

The purpose of this multidisciplinary programme (2004-2007) is to examine industrial design using the implements of business science and the technical sciences and of the social sciences and cultural research. Research will cover the whole system of industrial design, i.e. the practice of design, technological product development, materials research, marketing, consumption and the cultural impact of products. Many research projects of the University of Art and Design Helsinki take part in this programme.
