Summary "The book starts discussing the nature of design problems. It states that because of the ill-defined nature of design problems, active problem structuring is required during the early stages of the design process." "Via a series of empirical studies, this book explores several aspects that are considered fundamental in the process of problem structuring. Those are, the initial interpretations the designers make of the design situation, the design requirements and the information accessed and used." "Multiple prototypes of software tools are developed to support the research. By these means, it is possible not only to produce results in theoretical aspects, but also to produce results in terms of software that has been tested in the studies. All these prototypes are described in detail."--Jacket.
