Abstract

The InDeaTe design tool was developed to help designers and engineers to innovate by following a methodical process. This paper discusses the application of InDeaTe for designing a manufacturing system for a grassroots innovator who makes and installs small hydel power turbines in southern India. The aim of the design exercise was to help scale up the current manufacturing setup to cater to the high demand, while ensuring its sustainability. Two design teams were involved in solving the problem-one using the tool and the other without. Analysis of the final design outcomes showed that the team using the InDeaTe tool generated a more comprehensive design than the team not using the tool. This study indicates that InDeaTe tool can help in developing more inclusive designs for manufacturing systems. Future work on InDeaTe includes improving its usability and expanding its database.
