A simplified variant of Set-Based Design (SBD) was created. It was combined with the creative methods 6-3-5 and the Gallery method as well as the systematic method morphological matrix to generate solutions. This made it possible to introduce SBD in one day, which has been verified by tests on design problems at industrial firms. The methodology, Instant Set-Based Design (ISBD), was perceived easy to understand and was well received by the designers. The introduction of it was less cumbersome compared to the full version of SBD. The conclusion is that the developed methodology works as intended with good results.
