    Special Issue on Data-Driven Design (D3

    With the arrival of Cyber-Physical Systems or Internet of Things (IoT) era, the massive human- and machine-generated data can create unprecedented challenges and at the same time unmatched opportunities in advancing the theory, methods, tools and practice of Data-Driven Design (D3) for products, systems and services. By exploiting such huge, versatile and highly contextualized through-life data, design engineers can harness their organization’s competitive edge by uncovering patterns, novel insights and knowledge for D3. The aim of this special issue is to bring together original and archival articles that present significant contributions in advancing the D3 field. Examples of D3 topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

    • D3 foundation and platform building
    • D3 theory and principles
    • D3 of engineering decisions
    • D3 analytics: algorithm advances
    • Big Data-driven Design with online reviews, and with user and system generated data
    • Big Data-driven Design with social computing, crowdsourcing and human-machine interaction
    • Machine learning-based model engineering for D3
    • Uncertainty issues in D3
    • Analytics of human behaviors for D3
    • D3 for integrated cyber-physical systems (IoT, sensor data, etc.)
    • D3 in prognostics and health management
    • D3 in engineering education

    Relevance to engineering design will be explicitly considered as a criterion in the review process. 

    Submission Instructions

    Please submit your paper to ASME at and note on the cover page that your paper is intended for the special issue on “Data-Driven Design”. Please also e-mail the Editor, Dr. Shapour Azarm at (and cc: to alert them that your paper is intended for the special issue. Information about the Journal of Mechanical Design can be found at Please note that a limit of 12 journal pages without ASME page fees will be observed.

    Publication Target Dates

    • Submission of papers by: February 20, 2017
    • Initial review completed by: April 10, 2017
