Research on changes in design has focused on changes in the product domain. However, because the product's design process may change as well, this article suggests a concept for a comprehensive method to support modelling and analysis of changes in the process domain (DPCs). After deriving a set of functional requirements, different conceptual ideas for such a method are examined and the fundamental elements and relationships of a chosen concept are studied. Furthermore, a set of analyses, which helps designers understand DPC impacts and improve process execution and planning, is introduced.
