||With the aid of CMD-systems several design stages can be recorded. Withthem the design process that was foIlowed can be set down and reconstructedtoo. I f these diEerernt design stages originate from one and the same file, theycan easily be compared with each other. These were the starting point5 that ledto a research into the possibility to record all design data, generated during anarchitectural derign process, in one infonriation system in a 'temporally'coordinated manner. For this we should be able to record and reproduce thedesign stages as well as the processes t h t led to them. The central issue in thisresearch is the way in which teinporal aspects of design information can beregistered in the architectural data system. The infinity of the size of theinformation system and the finiteness of the capacity of recording media shouldbe takeri into account here.This initid paper deals with the presentaxiun of an original idea coiicerningthe possibilities and restrictions of computer systems as tools for the designprocess. Before long research results in thi: form uf a fhetional desig and afirst prototype can be presented.
