Computer-based design analysis activities are an essential part of most product development projects in industry. An effective integration of the analysis activity into the product development process, especially when the design analysis is performed not by the engineering designer but by an analyst, internal or external to the company, is therefore very valuable. The contribution in this work is a design analysis process model that tries to eliminate some integration issues (transmission of incorrect information, disagreement on activities…) through the use of quality assurance techniques and procedures: quality checks, verification and validation, and uncertainty treatment. The process model is formulated in general terms so that it can be adapted to particular product development processes available in the industry.
