Building cross-domain models of the elements involved in design – such as requirements, functions, components and design activities can help generate and document design information. In this paper an evaluation is discussed, in which video experiments were used to explore the role of cross-domain modelling in information creation and evolution. The results of the experiments are discussed and some limitations of such evaluation methodology are highlighted.
