Abstract. Customer-centered design is an emerging field in engineering and industrial product development process. The product that is developed should satisfy the customers’ needs not only through its performance but also through its external appearance, thus leading to its low risk of market failure. Therefore, a tool which can automatically generates variety of designs for a product based on the customer preferences can be beneficial for engineers and product designers. The objective of this study is to develop a tool that can produce variety of designs options within the costumers’ design preferences, thereby creating customer-centered designs for the customers. For this purpose, sampling of designs for a given CAD product in its predetermined design space can be very beneficial and can let the designers to produce creative design by letting them escape from the traditional time consuming design process.

Keywords. Computer Aided Design, Customer-Centered Design, Spatial Simulated Annealing.
