‘What-if’ design: a synthesis method in the design process

|Abstract:||In integrating functions, information and control in the design and engineering cycle, the information content acts as a facilitator, whereas the processes involved actually effectuate the results of the development cycle. As combining processes in an effective and efficient manner becomes increasingly feasible, a more dynamic coherence between the processes involved is implied, calling for different control principles, whilst maintaining -and possibly increasing-flexibility.
This increases the competency in understanding and utilising consequences of design decisions. Based on this, a ‘what-if design support system can help in performing routine tasks and aiding designers and engineers in understanding more complex challenges.
