|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.|
