This paper, "rst of the two parts series, addresses a science-based approach to the study of design processes. Design process is an evolving process that begins with design requirements and ends with product descriptions. A general design governing equation is proposed to characterize the design process. We also proposed a design process model that embodies synthesis and evaluation processes, design problem rede"nition process, and design decomposition process. The basis of the design process… CONTINUE READING
