The SCREAM! tool

A problem in the design process of Multidisciplinary Design Teams is the notion of design waste. Design waste happens when parts of the work of the Multidisciplinary Design Team are unavailable for creative reuse. Therefore teams are not able to build upon others work and keep reinventing the wheel. This takes time, creates double work and impedes the creation of better products. We proposed an addition to the SCREAM! approach that will make ‘communicating the process’ with others more effective and subsequently should prevent the waste of design knowledge in the Multidisciplinary Design Teams.
