Strategic design of innovative production systems

Strategic design symbol system v.1

Abstract

Strategic design involves addressing strategic issues using visual tools that enable creative expression. Strategic design is highly relevant to formulating plans for innovative production systems. This is because innovative production systems cannot be generated through analysis of existing production systems. Rather, creativity is needed: in particular, creativity in seeing and shaping connections between many diverse factors. As many regions seek to redistribute, re-shore, right-shore, and establish new production, innovative production systems are a global imperative. The symbol system shown in this publication has been developed to enable the widest possible participation during the strategic design of innovative production systems. This is facilitated by minimum use of words and maximum use of graphics.
