The Design Process[edit]

Requirements for each element or component derived from system level goals and requirements[edit]
Alternatives in design[edit]
The initial design[edit]
Experiment prototypes and test articles in design development[edit]
Appropriate optimization in the presence of constraints[edit]
Iteration until convergence[edit]
The final design[edit]
Accommodation of changing requirements[edit]

The Design Process Phasing and Approaches[edit]

The activities in the phases of system design (e.g. conceptual, preliminary, and detailed design)[edit]
Process models appropriate for particular development projects (waterfall, spiral, concurrent, etc.)[edit]
The process for single, platform and derivative products[edit]

Utilization of Knowledge in Design[edit]

Technical and scientific knowledge[edit]
Creative and critical thinking, and problem solving[edit]
Prior work in the field, standardization and reuse of designs (including reverse engineer and redesign)[edit]
Design knowledge capture[edit]
