Brian Pate has created this job aid to assist with explaining the separation of design input from the design process. The diagram illustrates the "flow down" process of high level, intended use functionality traces downward to more detailed requirements and specifications. Where do we draw the line with design input? What should be the focus of design validation? Are software requirements design input? Many questions can be discussed as you use this job aid to map to your DHF documentation tree.
