      Design methods include analysis...code. All based on ideas started in 1968-1977. No clear dividing lines between successive activities shift from life cycle to process Destinguishes: descriptive models("conceptual")(give guidance) from prescriptive models("formal")(establish criteria). and: problem oriented(focus on understanding the problem/solution) from product oriented(correct transformation from a prescription to a maintainable implementation). Four categories. problem oriented prescriptive models have potential automatic support for product oriented formal problem oriented tend to be descriptive and prescriptive tend to be product oriented.
