Presenting a unique biomimetic layout strategy for shifting layout options from nature to expertise, this publication makes a speciality of structure-function styles in nature and complicated modeling instruments derived from TRIZ, the speculation of creative problem-solving. The booklet contains an intensive literature assessment on biomimicry as an engine of either innovation and sustainability, and discusses intimately the biomimetic layout procedure, present biomimetic layout tools and instruments. The structural biomimetic layout strategy for innovation and sustainability recommend during this textual content encompasses (1) the learn process and cause used to boost and validate this new layout procedure; (2) the recommended layout set of rules and instruments together with the locate constitution database, structure-function styles and ideality styles; and (3) analyses of 4 case reviews describing how you can use the proposed strategy. This booklet deals a vital source for designers who desire to use nature as a resource of thought and data, innovators and sustainability specialists, and scientists and researchers, among others.

It is time for a real change. It is clear that this change should be inherent in the way we think, design, manufacture, consume and end the use of our products. This required change towards sustainability may be first perceived as a business constraint. New regulations and demands require management attention and financial resources. However, it is now clear that sustainability is a key driver to innovation [30]. There are more and more case studies of companies that their quest for sustainability made them innovation leaders [31].

Biomimicry has also been identified as a mean to address the current need of sustainable innovation [12]. In this section we explore the relation of biomimicry and innovation and explain the mechanism of the biomimetic innovation. 1 Nature as an Idea Generator Biomimicry is considered as a method for generating innovative design concepts when it is integrated during early design stages, mainly the concept design stage. During this stage, possible design concepts are generated and evaluated to choose one for detailed design.

6 Biomimetic Design Process—Main Challenge 29 In general, knowledge structure and mapping in different disciplines is different [82], although there is notable exception, namely, the Interdisciplinary Engineering Knowledge Genome (IEKG) that bridges between seemingly distinct disciplines [62, 83, 84]. The difference between biology and engineering was previously discussed. In addition, functional terminologies in both domains may be different. For example, the function ‘Transport’ may have different meaning in biology.
