This paper presents results from an experiment studying the creative behaviour of 14 engineering designers during a later stage engineering design activity; with the aim of identifying important considerations that must be made when supporting designers in later stage design situations. Data gathered demonstrates the variation in designer behaviour that occurs even when completing identical activities; and differing creative approaches that designers may follow within the later stages of the design process. By understanding the individual behaviour of designers, it will be possible to better inform the use of methods for creative support within the later stage engineering design process.
