In this paper a concept for a computer based system, a Designer’s Workbench (DWB), is presented, for supporting a designer during the conceptual design process. The DWB is based on design units, which are a clustering of design knowledge related to the conceptual design phase. It is shown, how these design units can be created by the designer during the conceptual design process, and later reused in another design project. The design of a snap-fit joint, is used to illustrated this approach to design.
