Introduction

This part of the book deals with a process that has often beenmisunder-

stood. It has sometimes been treated as though it were a bolt-on

optional extra, but it is one that is essential for every designer to com-

mand. Having identified and analysed the problem presented by the

only to the contractor but between every participant in the design

process.
