The pattern of design activities is changing in the wake of engineering progress. Up to now the art of design was mostly expounded and taught on the bases of available "excellent examples" and the designer learnt his craft predominantly as a craftsman or artist. This method had its drawbacks for by the time the designer was ready to apply himself to the design of complete machines, years went by and the "excellent examples" were often out of date. The ever increasing speed of development makes it necessary to consider design on the basis of more effective methods and one of these is to be considered here. Design should be regarded as a series of logical steps.
