College of Engineering, EEIC Creative Design Thinking * * Directly from: EEIC Multidisciplinary Capstone Program
College of Engineering, EEIC Introduction What is C REATIVITY ? Create: To produce or bring about by course of action, To bring into existence something new, To produce through imaginative skill Ref: Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary, 10 th edition. Creativity is the ability to bring into fruition ones original, imaginative and/or expressive ideas and concepts to serve new purposes and/or fulfill a need.
College of Engineering, EEIC Who is CREATIVE? Creativity in everyone personal social cultural Knowledge Creativity Engineers use their creativity to generate useful ideas and solve problems.
College of Engineering, EEIC Conceptualization of Creativity Generating a useful idea Problem Product vs. Technology Product Communicating the idea Words, Pictures, Construction Making the concept aesthetically appealing
College of Engineering, EEIC Ways to Becoming More Creative Learn creative thinking techniques Keep a daily journal/notebook Indulge in relaxation activities Maintain other interests Read Ask questions Exchange ideas
College of Engineering, EEIC Obstacles to Creativity Fear of criticism Lack of confidence Negative stress Hectic environment Rigid rules and barriers Conflicting goals and objectives Routine tasks Images: from OSU industrial design
College of Engineering, EEIC Techniques to Generate Ideas/Solutions Notebook Brainstorm Attribute Listing Drawing Construction Research and Lateral Thinking Assumption Smashing Fail Fast
College of Engineering, EEIC Technique 1- The Notebook Keep notes on product goals Sketches Notes
College of Engineering, EEIC Technique 2- Brainstorming Rules of brainstorming –Free flow –Random ideas –Leap-frog –Piggy-back –Divergent thinking –Convergent thinking –Non-critical Images: from OSU industrial design
College of Engineering, EEIC Technique 3- Attribute Listing Classification Table: Classification Tree: Crust Hand tossed Pan Wheat Vegetables Onions Peppers Olives Mushrooms Meat Pepperoni Ham Sausage Bacon Toppings Veggies Meat Onions Peppers Olives Mushrooms Pepperoni Ham Bacon
College of Engineering, EEIC Technique 4- Drawing Doodling- freeform drawing Storyboarding Mind Mapping

College of Engineering, EEIC Technique 5- Construction Given a variety of shapes and sizes these techniques allow for quick rearranging: Popsicle Sticks Construction Paper Foam Models
College of Engineering, EEIC Technique 7- Assumption Smashing Consider what happens to the design of a product or system if each of the assumptions are dropped one at a time. Fewer Limitations More Creativity
College of Engineering, EEIC Technique 8 - Fail Fast Trying many ideas Free of limitations Recognize other opportunities Recognize failures early
College of Engineering, EEIC Creativity in Invention
College of Engineering, EEIC Summary To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science. Albert Einstein
College of Engineering, EEIC Summary Defined Creativity Ways to be more Creative Techniques to be Creative –Notebook –Brainstorm –Attribute Listing –Drawing –Construction –Research and Lateral Thinking –Assumption Smashing –Fail Fast
