Material selection processes are complex as they are based on a wide range of criteria that need to be considered. There has been made studies to describe the activities during the selection process and how they relate to the product development process that takes place parallel to the material selection. The material selection process is different for engineers and designers, mainly based on what type of information that is required and when in the process the decisions are made. In general most design offices has developed their own material selection method. How unique are these methods? By working with case study’s the result hopefully can be used for extracting data for different purposes throughout the project. To be able to contribute to the field of material selection within industrial design the plan is to map the tacit knowledge within multidisciplinary design teams in the Öresund Region to look for an emerging pattern in material selection processes. In the end the goal is to suggest new guidelines for improved material selection methods and material selection sources for industrial designers. Master of Industrial Design, from The Danish Designschool. PhD-student in Industrial Design at Department of Design Sciences Lund University.
