< < WORKSHOP GOAL AND PROCEDURE > >
Foundations for thinking about the engineering of systems have maximum value when viewed with great appreciation for theadvancing human modified world. Accordingly, the goal of this workshop is to develop conceptual visions of design decision support capability for linking individual designers decisions to system impacts at the global level, and to life-cycle value in the face of multiple criteria.
This ambitious workshop goal will be pursued through the interactive involvement of all participants, with the purpose of integrating and linking foundations for advancing existing on-line capacity to support distributed design decision making. Eight lectures and two follow-up sessioswill be provided to initiate and stimulate discussion within study groups, with insight and findings reported concurrently.
