Embodiment Discrete Processing
The phases of the embodiment stage are sequentially conceived and in some domains even cyclic conceived. Nevertheless, there is no seamless integration between these, causing longer development processes, increment of time lags, loss of inertia, greater misunderstandings, and conflicts. Embodiment Discrete Processing enables the seamless integration of three building blocks. 1) Dynamic Discrete Representation: it is capable to concurrently handle the design and the analysis phases. 2) Dynamic Discrete Design: it deals with the needed modeling operations while keeping the consistency of the discrete shape. 3) Dynamic Discrete Analysis: it efficiently maps the dynamic changes of the shape within the design phase, while streamlining the interpretation processes. These integrated building blocks support the multidisciplinary work between designers and analysts, which was previously unusual. It creates a new understanding of what an integral processing is, whose phases were regarded as independent. Finally, it renders new opportunities toward a general purpose processing.
