Abstract: This paper describes an approach to managing the supply chain from the perspective of design. It describes the concept of a Design Chain and argues that the industry needs to centre the development of Integrated Teams (as proposed in Accelerating Change) around collaborative working of all parties involved in the design process. Integrated Collaborative Design (ICD) recognises that we are too often focussed on the short-term objectives of projects, rather than long-term business strategy and organisational relationships. In simple terms, it involves three steps: identifying tasks (process management); allocating roles (as part of supply chain management); and focusing design solutions to deliver value. The paper outlines the principles and approach to ICD, which is supported by a handbook contain 25 supporting practice notes, published by Thomas Telford.
