Design review is used throughout the product development process to evaluate the design in terms of costs, quality and delivery, to ensure that the most suitable knowledge and technology are incorporated into the design, and to resolve possible problems instead of passing them downstream. Business globalization has extended design review activities to involve interdisciplinary members within and outside the enterprise, either geographically collocated or dispersed. This paper first proposes a systematic and rigorous framework based on a Systematic Theory of Axiomatic Design Review for more efficient and effective design review. The resulting framework is adequately well-structured and generic, enabling it to become the basis for developing a web-based design review portal in the extended enterprise. The framework is extended further to formulate a new design review technique called FuzzySTAR (Fuzzy Set Theory Approach to design Review). This paper demonstrates how design review tools are accommodated within the design review enterprise portal and how to use FuzzySTAR for reviewing the design of a fuel pump.

Huang also develop ed a web-based design review system [5] [6] [7]to discuss effects of engineering changes, which is helpful to preserving the detailed contents of the reviews. Peng and Trappey [8] proposed a data model of a produ ct compatible to ISO. "

    ABSTRACT: The necessity of an incident reporting system has recently been increasing for hospitals. Japan Council for Quality Health Care (JCQHC) started operating a national incident reporting system to which domestic hospitals would report their incidents. However, the reporting system obtained an additional problem for the hospitals. They managed their own systems which collected reports by papers. The purposes of the reporting systems was to analyze considerable causes involved in incidents to improve the quality of patient safety management. On the contrary, the national reporting system aimed at collecting a statistical tendency of normal incidents. Simultaneously operating the two systems would be too much workload for safety managers. The load may have the managers rest only a short time for summarizing occurrences, not enough for analyzing their causes. However, to the authors' knowledge, there has not been an integrating policy of the two forms to adapt them to practical situations in patient safety management. The scope of this paper is to establish the integrated form in order to use in analyzing the causes of incidents as well as reporting for the national system. We have developed new data base system using XML + XSLT and Java Servlet. The developed system is composed of three computers; DB server , DB client and Data sending server. To investigate usability of the developed system, we conducted a monitoring test by real workers in reporting workplaces. The result of subjective evaluations by examinees was so preferable for the developed system. The results of usability test and the achievement of increasing the number of reports after the introduction can demonstrate the enough effectiveness of the developed system for supporting the activity of patient safety management.

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes a web-based design review system as a knowledge management system relating reliability and safety system design. Since people's consciousness for safety and security become sensitive and increases the need of establishing a proactive prevention method for internal failures and relating risks in products. It also means that prevailing tacit knowledge in retired workers, in order to transform them to be easily used to support new system development, become more important. When considering safety and reliability design, at least two data sheet are necessary; Failure Modes and Effects Analyses (FMEA) and Risk Assessment (RA). These two data are practically made separately. However, it includes the concerns that a risk by failures during long-term use may not be noticed. To overcome this insufficiency, a support tool for integrating reliability evaluation and risk assessment data simultaneously is expected to be revealed. The authors have then developed a web-based design review system for reliability and safety system design. The system include various profitable functions; making FMEA and RA sheet, retrieving past data sheet for engineering change management and new product development and web-based discussion to increase the efficiency of discussion. The system is applied to one practical development works in order to demonstrate its effectiveness that is to be made clear by interviewing user's qualitative comment.

    ABSTRACT: The concept of Mizen-Boushi (reliability problem prevention) has been applied to automotive development. A quality innovation process 'GD3', which means 'Good Design', 'Good Discussion' and 'Good Design Review', has been developed. Authors planned to utilise a System Design Review, in which we discuss potential failure modes, root causes and examine parts drawing and prototype parts designs using the Design Review Based on Failure Mode (DRBFM) method. This paper will introduce the specific framework of the System DRBFM. System DRBFM can then previously visualise latent problems in hierarchical structure of design products in the development stage.
