The objectives of International Journal of Design and Manufacturing Technology (IJDMT) are to establish an effective channel of communication between academic and research institutions, industries and enterprises, professional organisations, policy makers, government agencies and persons concerned with the complex issues in design engineering and related subject areas. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in those areas. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and ecological change and changes in the global economy.
The journal reports on new developments, techniques, knowledge and applications in the practice of design, as well as design education: how design techniques may be taught, the approach to ill-defined problems and the impact of new technologies. Coverage includes design management, design methods, participation in planning and design, design education, AI and computer aids in design, design in engineering, theoretical aspects of design, design in architecture, design and manufacturing, innovation in industry and design and society.
Aim and Objectives
- To bring together theories, models and actual products from related design areas, including engineering, architecture, industrial design and planning
- To emphasise human aspects as a central issue of design through integrative studies of social sciences and design disciplines
- To offer a platform for high-quality research, theory making, analysis, education, and practice
- To support the dialogue between practitioners and academics, avoiding a purely academic discussion on design science
- To highlight new developments in artifact design
