Due to the lack of creative tools in engineering, graduated engineers have been reported to lack creativity. Engineering design processes provide structure for problem-solving but do not aim for novelty but rather explore than expand the known design space. Idea generation is a part of the engineering design, which is built on innovation theory. The mechanisms behind the myriad of idea generation tools have been also been identified in recent literature. Furthermore, computer aided innovation tools have emerged that offer effortless and efficient exploration of the design space. A unified framework is reconstructed here based on the recognized ideation mechanisms and computer aided innovation tools. The framework has typical stages, framing, ideation, selection and evaluation, yet the implementation and integration of the stages is novel. The proposed approach uses a semantic graph to frame the problem. Then, idea generation is done based on random and guided stimuli to generate high quantity of ideas. The best idea is selected based on pairwise ranking. Lastly, the idea is evaluated based on a function of the requirements it meets. The central aspects of the proposed framework are integration of computer aided innovation and idea generation tools, digitalization and automation of the process and its documentation.
