Abstract

This paper explores the potential of constraint modelling as a paradigm for supporting design in practice. It identifies that there are core similarities between design models and in particular McMahon’s four modes of change. This is shown by the way of case study examples. The wider capability of constraint modelling as a paradigm for supporting design in practice is also explored through consideration of how it supports the four dimensions presented by Hicks et al. namely, discussion making, problem solving, information transfer and collaboration.

Keywords: constraints, design process and models, modes of change
