Abstract

The generation of digital objects are present throughout the work that is undertaken during the engineering design process. Although it is self-evident that these objects have been created by engineers to support their work, little research has been performed to understand whether there are underlying signatures in their generation that could provide useful insights to the management of the project. In order to address this, this paper presents some initial insights from the analysis of the generation of digital objects from an engineering project, and discusses potential signatures.
