In hjis book, Hugh Dubberly <http://www.dubberly.com/author/hugh/> have
collected over one-hundred descriptions of design and development processes,
from architecture, industrial design, mechanical engineering, quality
management, and software development. They range from short mnemonic
devices, such as the 4Ds (define, design, develop, deploy), to elaborate
schemes, such as Archer's 9-phase, 229-step "systematic method for
designers." Some are synonyms for the same process; others represent
differing approaches to design.

By presenting these examples, he hopes to foster debate about design and
development processes:

*How do we design? Why do we do it that way?*

*How do we describe what we do? Why do we talk about it that way?*

*How do we do better?*
