The following paper aims to create a classification method for design enablers which will later be used to measure the impact of design enablers on industry. First, a classification method for design enablers is developed based on a review of relevant literature. Second, this method is applied to a series of design enablers developed by the CEDAR lab strictly based on information published within literature. Finally, non-published documentation available for one of the reviewed design enablers will be considered further to better illustrate the classification method. In later work, additional unpublished documentation will be considered alongside interviews of design enabler developers to fully classify the remaining enablers. This research will later be used to map design enabler development to its impact in order to make recommendations for decision making for future design enabler development.
