|Design can be modelled as an exploration-based process in which a collection of interconnected activities such as analytical assessment, problem evaluation, search for solutions, parameterisation, synthesis and optimisation is performed in a sequential or concurrent way. In this exploration-based design model, the outcome of a design is a design description document which consists of a final design requirement description in which the required behaviour of the proposed design is completely and consistently stated, a final design specification in which the structure and the parameters of the proposed design are fully specified, and a design history record in which the traceability of the design process is maintained.
