This session starts with an introduction to design. It can be an object, a plan or an activity. Design as an object is the end, whereas design as a plan is the beginning of a process. Design as an activity is a strategy to solve problems. Download Ype's slides (pdf 236 Kb).
In design as a plan conditions are created for a lean construction process. In this session a series of related questions are raised. Sigmund Aslesen's contribution focuses on the virtues of modular design in ship building.
