The NDA Process

A designed structure is a detailed blueprint or design for the arrangement or creation of something or a procedure, either for the production of a finished object or for its effective performance, or the outcome of which plan or specification in the shape of a model, prototype or implement. The word design comes from the Latin word ‘designed’ meaning deliberately or specially. The verb to design normally indicates the process of designing. Thus we have “to design” and “to design properly”.

Designing an invention takes a systematic process that consists of many steps. First, a designer would need to collect data concerning the existing inventions that are in wide use. Data concerning the existing inventions could refer to the technology, literature, history, art, architecture and so on. Second, a designer would need to organize this information in a manner that can be understood by rational thinking.

Third, based on the collected data, the designer would be able to draw a map showing the relationship between each of the existing technological aspects and the user’s needs. Fourth, rational thinking would allow the designers to distinguish and highlight the desirable features of the invention. The remaining steps include designing the layout, form, and function of the invention and testing the design solution using various techniques. Ux Design is an umbrella term under which several disciplines of industrial design have been created including interface design, graphic design, web design, software design and industrial design.

Rational problem-solving approach involves the designer solving problems by means of his/her skills, expertise and knowledge. Problem-solving designers are those who are interested in problem solving and try to develop products and solutions that help solve problems. On the other hand, problem-solving designers are those who are interested in providing products and solutions to the clients. Such designers form the early adopters of new technologies.

The rational model approach provides designers with a general description of the product. However, it provides very little detail. The rational model describes a situation in which a product is required by society at large. This is different from engineering design, which describes a situation where a product can be produced economically. The rational model is more descriptive than the formal engineering design goals.

The action-centric perspective characterizes a specific type of rational model. Under this perspective, 1 designers describe the product in terms of its expected actions by the end users and assess how these actions are associated with the product’s cost, profit, security, etc. Action-centric analysis may result in a more accurate representation of product requirements, but it requires extensive training and skill. For action-centric viewpoints, product development is usually performed after a detailed market survey has been conducted. Hence, action-oriented perspectives have a limited scope for deployment in current projects.
