Application of Systems Design to Buildings
In Chap. 3, systems design is proposed as a precise procedure for development of an optimum system. The method consists of six stages: data collection and problem formulation, synthesis, analysis, value analysis, appraisal and decision. In addition to data collection, which could be a continuous activity feeding information to every design step, there are nine basic design steps (see Fig. 3.4). These generally should be executed in sequence; however, the procedure also calls for loops from advanced steps back to earlier steps and then ahead again, as new information that can be used to improve the system is generated.
