The second, third and fourth sheets (the middle sheets) of the Five Design-Sheet method allow three designs to be explored in detail. Each sheet contains five parts: textual and reference information, sketches of what the tool or system would look like (the Big Picture), details of the components and operations of the design, and the Parti (the unique-selling point and principle ideas that underpin the design to make it special), finally advantages and disadvantages of the design.
