Therefore, certain designers develop a particular style of design or approach to the design problem and their reputation is based on this. Many of the constraints are self-imposed through self-criticism, which, if taken to the extreme, can mean that a solution that satisfies the designer can never be achieved. 2 External constraints External constraints come from many sources, but essentially fall into four categories: the client’s needs, the technology, the construction process, and statutory control.

The acceptability of the outcome is also based on a trade-off among the individuals about what they are willing to accept as a satisfactory interpretation of their ideals. Inevitably, design is a trade-off between many conflicting needs until there is a solution that enables everyone to move forward to the next aspect of the problem (Akin, 1986), a process known as ‘satisficing’. Each designer will have different perceptions of the problem and many ideas for its solution. Therefore, almost inevitably, features that one designer considers to be important may well be deemed unimportant by others.

A serious question is the problem of how we can structure the relationships and dialogues such that people along the supply chain will carry out their promises. This is particularly problematic in contractual terms because supply chain management may involve dialogue and promises between people who are not contractually linked (Benhaim, 1997). 5 Conclusions Traditional approaches to the management of design are inadequate because they have evolved more slowly than the industry and society as a whole.
