      Note -- best study of design and science so far

      systems always change[pp128-129].

      engineering uses a similar process but has different aims to scientific discovery[pxvii, p8, pp353ff...]

      Need formal requirements, feedback implementation & design to requirements[p170].

      compilers [pp324-331], PR vs T = functional vs implementation requirements(p165)

      multiple constraints[pp234-237,249-253,272-276]
